Asana is an awesome and very popular tool for project management.

In this class, I'll take you through all the basic features of Asana step-by-step so you finish with a great overview of the features available to you.

I've used Asana extensively over the past few years, both when working full-time at an events company and remote for a consultancy, as well as now working several different freelance roles where I have clients using this tool.

I believe that using Asana makes teams more productive, as it helps to organize everyone's work, keep team's on track and makes project management easier and more efficient.

What will this course cover?

We'll review:

  • the five key areas of the Asana interface

  • how to create tasks

  • how to create projects

  • the difference between a workspace and an organization

  • how to add due dates to tasks and projects

  • how to assign ownership to tasks and projects

Who is this course for?

This course is aimed at complete beginners to Asana. I want to help you get your first taste of this tool so that you feel very comfortable using it for personal projects, freelance or full-time work right after watching the lectures.

This course is also useful for people who are already using Asana but have a feeling like they could be getting more from the tool, maybe they haven't had time to fully review all the features on offer. If this sounds like you, I'm sure you can pick up one or two tips from this course to share with your team.

What are the benefits of taking the course?

If your company is using Asana, or will be in the future, take this course to get a head start on what features you have available.

That way, when you start using Asana for project management, you understand the best way to use Asana to organize a project into a way that works for you and your company.

It's important to understand what you can do with Asana, so you choose the correct set-up (personal projects, workspace or organization) and use features like tags, sections and color-coding to give everyone an accurate big picture of a project.

Otherwise, Asana can become a confusing space, where there are duplicate tasks floating around and no clear organization.

Don't make that mistake.

Take the time to learn about the basic features of Asana, so you can create a clear and organized project management structure.

As a student, you’ll get lifetime access to:

  • 16 engaging and practical lectures

  • Step-by-step tutorials: how to create tasks and projects, assign ownership, due dates, and more

All this for an investment of $19.99. If you aren't 100% happy with the course, Udemy offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, no questions asked. Register for the course now and get started today.
