Productivity application Asana released an update today that gives users a new way to view project tasks and assignments. Previously users could only view their work in list format. Now with Asana Calendars, users can see things in a calendar-type format to better understand how tasks stack up against others and understand any deadline conflicts.
Asana says that Calendars is a new way to better understand your projects and responsibilities. At first glance, users may find it similar to Google Calendar. Asana says that it’s not the case — it’s a feature that is basically in-between the Gantt chart you get from Microsoft Project and an ordinary calendar.
Administrators can set up calendars so that users can view due dates across teams and projects with a click of a button. Asana also lets you drill down further within a project to understand its deliverables and milestones. But what might be appealing to users is the custom view that lets you have multiple project views simultaneously and is a calendar tailored to your preferences.
Calendar views can also be saved or shared with co-workers.
