Many of you know how much I covet Remember the Milk. It’s been my Go-To app for years, keeping me focused on my priority tasks for each day. It’s still fantastic, but now there’s something even better. (And I don’t say that lightly. It’s actually kinda sad for me. RTM has been a loyal best friend.)
Led by Dustin Moskovitz, a co-founder, CTO, and VP of Engineering at Facebook, Asana aims to revolutionize how teams get things done. Simply put, it’s the most incredible tool I’ve seen for combining individual and team project management. And isn’t everything we do these days a project?
Pretty amazing, right?
Here’s more about how you can use it for individual task management.
Am I the only GTD’er celebrating that now there’s a tool built just for me?
I know. You’re wondering how much it costs. That was my first thought too.
Get this. It’s free for teams of up to 30 people (in each workspace).
I’ve only been using it a week, and I’m loving the attention to detail with the interface.
– Using colons to break out sub-projects
– Being able to view tasks by person so I can see what others are focused on
– Tags (and private tags)
It’s like the iPad of Project Management. You just pick it up and start using it. There’s no need for complicated instructions.
Here’s another video just for teams.
And in case you’re wondering, I’m not an affiliate for Asana (although I’d love to be) and there’s still a few tweaks I’d love to see:
– Be able to view tasks across all workspaces
– Be able to auto-repeat certain tasks
– Enhanced mobile app
Those are all already on the Requested Features list, so I hope we’ll see them soon.
Enough reading. Go try it out for yourself. It’s like an early Christmas.
