Project management can be a pain. Asana is one of the best tools that can be used to simplify projects, plan daily and weekly work, manage teams and organize your nonprofit. With tasks, projects, conversations and dashboards, Asana enables teams to get work done from start to finish.
Projects in Asana can be used for pretty much anything, from tracking tasks, leads, shared resources, to creating a meeting agenda, recording goals, and brainstorming ideas. Projects can have finite start and end dates, or just be active and in use. With that in mind, here are a number of great ways to use Asana, from communications to general project management to brainstorming to editorial and social media calendars to managing meetings, agendas and minutes, and so much more.
This workshop is a basic introduction to Asana while reviewing three different ways you can use Asana in your nonprofit. It won't get into all the nitty gritty of how to use various features and functions, but focus more on how to onboard your organization and get started using Asana, and preparing sample projects and project templates for use. In fact, we'll actually go through creating some template projects for your use.
There are free and paid versions of Asana based on the number of users you need per team or per organization, as well as other functionality. We will quickly discuss some of the cost decisions you may need to make with large teams, but for organizations with a small staff (under 15) or who works in teams of less than 15, Asana can be used for free for a long period of time.
