Intro To ASANA
This program is designed to familiarize students with the ASANA interface. Duration: 1 hour, 40 minutes.
We will cover the most common asked for projects that require assistance such as:
- How is the dashboard organized?
- When should I use a project template?
- How do I set up a new project, and populate tasks?
- How do I onboard a team in Asana?
- Can I use Asana to manage my organization?
- Can I use Asana with other apps, or platforms (YES!)
- What circumstances justify upgrading my Asana account?
All lessons will be run as screen recordings, focusing on managing the Asana platform as an account owner.
Video is required for a directed tour of how the software works, but is paired with a slideshow containing links to the guide and template files for exercises; can be printed out for note-taking and reference.
What this isn’t
A project management course in and of itself. The course alludes to Agile project management styles (available templates, Konban-style boards, scrum poker) as a means of demonstrating Asana’s flexibility, and this aspect of the platform will be highlighted throughout the course. Reference to other platforms that integrate Asana are made, and information made available for student to investigate further in the guides.
