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

Very clear explanations and demonstrations. Examples are relevant to what I was planning to do, helpful!

Dul10 July 2020

It was a great intro to Asana. It was challenging as the course is not based in the latest user interface version. Sometime I couldn't see on my Asana the same way as it was in the course.

Kevin7 July 2020

Yeah it's a good course to get you the basics of Asana. There are some things that are different taking this in 2020 but still was very helpful.

Kateryna2 June 2020

If you are looking for a short guide on Asana with clear instructions, high quality video and lecturer who has nice and engaging voice, this is the right place. Thank you!

Val29 May 2020

This is a great course for a complete beginner; or someone who needs to understand all of the basic features of Asana. Nikki is extremely clear, showed good examples, and had great video presentation skills. Thank you

Bashir28 May 2020

I was intimidated by Asana and Nikki really broke it down for me, cant wait to start building Asana to our needs.

Brandon27 May 2020

This was a great course! I really enjoyed the flow from set up to personalizing tasks to different projects.

Valérie12 May 2020

Very good course covering all basic features of Asana : I hope you will soon release further courses on the subject!

Nikita3 January 2020

Thanks, You got a sweet voice. Some constructive criticism: 1. I Expected to learn a bit more about premium features and portfolios. Disappointed that these were not mentioned in the course. 2. Would be a good idea to add a practical section where you design a few projects, task, sub tasks, assign different teams and MOST IMPORTANTLY go over good practices to get the most of Asana. Otherwise the demonstration was clear and concise. The course has helped me a lot to start organizing our team.

Raquel19 December 2019

My coworker told me about this course because we use Asana on our team a lot. I think the instructor went slow and step by step of all the features, which makes me feel prepared to use the tool. I think it will be a good match for our projects at work.

Augusto25 November 2019

Good but much too short. Adding two, step by step sample projects, at the end, would have made this my favorite Udemy course.

Jen24 November 2019

I have been using Asana for a while, but this has helped me learn ways to improve how I'm using it, and ways that I have been using it in a less than optimal way. I appreciate the organization of the course and how clearly each section was explained.

Melissa15 November 2019

It was a great introduction to beginner-level Asana. Lots of easy to follow instructions and tips. I hope a more advanced lesson is available soon.

Nikolett9 August 2019

I have found this course really helpful because it is clear, easy to understand and explains the program very well.

Sam7 July 2019

Probably good explanation on how Asana works (although one can also read the different drill-down options), but it's all about task details and I miss the perspective of what really counts for a project manager. From this tutorial I have the feeling Asana is a micro project management tool. Maybe that's due to Asana and not this course, but my questions are still unanswered.
