For the past few years, Asana has been an indispensable tool for managing my daily to-dos and large projects. While I love almost everything about Asana, there was one feature that was conspicuously missing: a way to manage work that moved through predefined stages (like a blog post going from idea to draft to published). Well the Asana designers must have been reading my diary because yesterday they announced new board based layouts! Now when you create a new project you can choose a list-based or a board-based layout.
While the new board layout is great, not all project types work well as a board. To get you thinking about how to use this new feature, I will walk you through 8 different project types that are perfect for a board layout.
