New Projects and Status Updates:
What do I do with ideas, new projects or changes to current ones? Since I plan my week ahead, I will know at all times what I am working on. But in business things can and will change – if you have an idea, an edit, or an entirely new project, please be sure to add it to our weekly meeting agenda. If the change is urgent and for a current project, comment in Asana on the appropriate task.
Can I assign you same day tasks? I do not do same day tasks, meaning if you email me or set up a task to be done the same day, it won’t happen (except in rare situations of a launch or similar event). My goal is for my business to be running in a proactive state, not reactive. If I allow last minute tasks, I am not doing what is best for the health of my business or sanity LOL.
What is the expected turn around time for tasks and projects? I put into Asana all tasks and projects I am currently working on. Click on my name to see all that is assigned to me, and you can then see the due date for each item. You can also do the same for what is assigned to you or another team member along with due dates. We will often discuss this in our weekly meeting.
Do you want regular status updates on major projects? Yes, I would like a weekly update each Friday. I want to know major tasks completed, anything still open, and if you have questions or things you are waiting on from me.
If you are not sure how to use Asana to view what team members have completed, click here (still need to add) for a short tutorial showing you how.
