even with clients that don’t use Asana, I can create a workspace for them and eventually just hand it over to them as well - things are logically separate, it’s really the SSO that’s the special sauce
tsrt3mo
ah so Asana has one account with many email addresses tied to it, but all separated by workspaces? Rather than one standard email account being able to access whatever workspace you create/are invited to?
vkst3mo
correct
ujdf3mo
once you’ve “confirmed” the email address, you can use any of the email addresses to login
qgve3mo
and once you’re logged in, you have access to all of your workspaces collectively
biio3mo
ah yes I haven't seen that in Clickup, you'd have to get invited with your own account I think. Maybe there's a setting somewhere but haven't seen it. Not that I have looked for it either lol
bgms3mo
I haven’t seen it anywhere else - and I’m a service fiend. I try pretty much everything that comes out, since being knowledgeable of service options is part of my charter for clients.
plzm3mo
It's a neat feature for those that need it
ektk3mo
my usage luckily doesn't warrant it yet. I just use clickup for me, invite some freelancers sometimes, and use a Toggl integration so I can see how long each task takes in a weekly report
xhuz3mo
yeah, it looks great
mxug3mo
I wish Asana wasn’t so pricey
nojk3mo
same
ssdi3mo
went from Asana to Trello to Clickup lol
mbqs3mo
I'm sure Clickup will start charging more or charging for some of what is free now in the future
qgqxxeqebu3mo
+1 for clickup
stegsyihrihy3mo
They make a pretty good argument clickup.com/table-all-in-one 😂 covering all the bases. Not sure I like that 100MB limit 'tho
qtqi3mo
not great if you need many attachments
tdkf3mo
I think I'm using 0/100MB right now lol
bdhoieut2mo
Friend is wondering if anyone knows of a ticketing system that integrates with asana
kascxlfp2mo
Support tickets I assume
vikl2mo
dbdthccid what level of integration are we talking about?
wumf2mo
are you looking for two way sync?
wcmw2mo
seems like an incongruent fit, tbh
kueniolj2mo
Yeah hmm
lmel2mo
Must be a few, using zapier that is as a middle man. Zendesk is one of the ones I believe
ecwm2mo
But yes seems less ideal and something that can get messy quick
txlfgdrsz2mo
Great discussion, thanks for all the input. After checking out a few suggestions here, I think I’m going to go with Clickup. Very powerful tool with a lot of premium features that Asana offers but for free! Will be carving out time this weekend to migrate tasks over, can report back on how that goes
sivpycvhd2mo
wow clickup is like notion + airtable
izposnk2mo
svblhycsrz2mo
I just came here to ask if anyone’d used Notion, and I see this 😂
ghccllrun2mo
so i migrated everything over from asana to clickup, customized my views and upgraded to the $5 paid plan. loving it so far. my only complaint, similar to notion, is that it gets pretty slow if there are too many items in view. other than that, it’s pretty sweet 🔥 thanks for the rec!
ljwwncendw2mo
how many is many?
nndbuahxzb2mo
i’m looking into both notion and clickup right now because they’re both a nice mix of Asana+Trello+Wiki+AirTable
ifwqddtxby2mo
one thing i’m not seeing in ClickUp, that Notion has, is the ability to show 2 calendars (example internal due date vs publishing schedule)
lhemveddw2mo
like 180+
fqtjkhplp2mo
i find Clickup is more organized like a spreadsheet whereas Notion is more freeform with lots of different “widgets”
lqtglerdp2mo
i don’t really get the different views in clickup… doesn’t seem like they are too customizable beyond the standard fields 🤔
shlscifdie2mo
yikes. seriously? 180 seems like a really small number
cywuxorkvu2mo
i find the clickup interface to be really overwhelming… there are just so many panels and control groupings everywhere. i find myself not knowing where to look… but they have some pretty innovative features though, so i’m investing some time to learn and see if this would work
cnucjtayg2mo
i think i was really feeling it when i was setting up. i imported 200+ tasks from asana and basically was using multiselect + edit features a lot and it was bogging down. i empathize though since i deal with the same performance issues on my own app 😛 it was worth it though IMO for the customizability. seems better now though or maybe im just used to it, hah
tfmcxbrgz2mo
i remember notion was reaaaally bad though, performance wise with a lot of items. but this was maybe 6 months ago, maybe they’ve improved since
hiosgxaydd2mo
i see. i tried clickup maybe 6 months ago but gave up because the UI was just so confusing. just started trying Notion 2 days ago, and now trying Clickup v2.0 again
odknsiskdf2mo
the one feature i’m really looking for (2 calendars) doesn’t seem to be available though
wxjznuzd2mo
Clickup doesn’t work well in safari, the / command doesn’t even do anything in it
mnldlsuixt2mo
Is there a concept of having a task live in multiple projects or workspace or page or whatever it’s called in ClickUp? It’s another one of Asana’s core feature that we use a lot, that I’m still trying to replicate in ClickUp…
xkgoksndic2mo
or something like Notion’s “Relations” property
ljjugwaqf2mo
i don’t see anything like that, it’s only giving me an option to move a task
lqgntzyux2mo
zckrrgxjfei why are you migrating away from asana?
cmwzzfwnno2mo
Asana is great in many ways, but has so many shortcoming…
1) people feel overwhelmed because the template feature is stupid and assigns people tasks when a template is created
2) it’s task-focused, and completely missing a wiki feature for transferring knowledge and onboarding people. yes we could use a different system, but it’s a hassle
3) lacking the ability to have multiple calendar (one for internal due date, one for publishing date)
4) subtasks are difficult to see and are often missed.
5) can’t assign task to more than one person
rbrfqziptz2mo
i’m sure there’s more… but also i think it’s time for a change.
wqeuljnf2mo
Is #4 even true
enrtaonyz2mo
gtmwiinwmae that’s my same critique list of Monday
vbewapaeg2mo
Except for #5
dnndqhrawe2mo
#5 sorta works, by duplicating the task. it’s slow and clutters up things unfortunately.
dkoknrbooz2mo
#4 is has been improving. i forget which update it was this year that finally introduced an icon, with a number, at the task-level view so that users know that there are sub-tasks and have an easy way to get in.

however, it’s still problematic because the next step requires users to click on a tiny chat bubble/comment icon to actually get into the subtask. clicking on the task name would make a lot more sense and be easier, but doing so goes into task-name edit mode. it’s a weird UX decision. who goes and change task name that often that it’s the default behavior?
bgqgaqdo2mo
This is why Jira is the best
ivmvghdw2mo
fibery.io|fibery.io was mentioned in #___general and seems pretty neat at first glance
nskwozvii2mo
It’s awful
oooaufrqp2mo
Awesome
mpnhozeu2mo
reywihvlew i'm still waiting on your disclaimer that you own 13.37% of it
aoixsgzzs2mo
You won those shares in our last strip poker game. Don’t you remember? It was after we drank that bottle of tequila you stole
efjvhqe5d
Has anyone successfully hired a coach/therapist to help them get through productivity problems? Feels like that’s an option for people working solo on projects who are having a hard time being on top of stuff?
lvbuoiwg5d
I want to know that as well
sqfrhqubjddow5d
1. Take the hour that you were planning to spend talking to a productivity coach
2. Use it to get the thing done
xvmsanbw5d
ohpimybp my friend is REALLY liking focusmate, it’s helped him put in 6-8 hours of productive time a day
cdljcijgnjyne5d
Focusmate looks like an "accountability-buddy" type service?
vedetkmfgxesr5d
p2p?
habhwuquv5d
yeah looks like it
ghbawouyw5d
personally, i get that when i go to a coffee shop or somewhere else public to work (like a library)
speyhtjoquaox5d
Hell is other people when I'm trying to get work done
tuweokpssekzr5d
I'm not sure our "coffee shop friends" are really holding us accountable to do anything but order coffees though ;)
lzttpdptbalkl5d
What _would_ be useful is a coach who can look over a list of how I spent my time last week, and identify items that could be delegated/outsourced based on relative time-value
qksqorkgbaipj5d
Also tasks that went _way_ over any reasonable amount of time, like some low-value thing I got hyperfocused on for 8 hours
ccbqhawoimwhc5d
If there's a pattern to those then maybe I could learn how to avoid it
hjtrvwyq5d
so basically with focusmate, you spend a minute telling the other person what you're gonna do, then you mute the microphone, get to work, and when the hour is up you spend a minute saying if you accomplished it or not etc
vztprtkzqotda5d
So basically Pomodoro
obbfbktu5d
yep
mlxavkjp5d
but additional effect of accountability and gets you used to planning out/committing to a small enough task that you can actually do it etc
tctjdmpesdnda5d
I bet I could procrastinate that initial declaration of intent for at least half a day
skofxoqz5d
lhcmxmpnoekumi now we just need an app to fix that problem 😉
komuaihf5d
let's procrastinate on making a procrastination fix app
rczuvkrmgaabd5d
Alarm?
mrpmgvmc5d
blockchain-backed alarm
fztvpbtnitdnl5d
I will say that I've _never_ not gone running on a morning when my running buddy was expecting me to be there.
iexuqpfvkesgr5d
Getting to the office on time for a morning standup though? fuggetaboutit
xdjdnws5d
Focusmate paid subscriber and a small investor here - absolutely LOVE it! helps me get through any damn day - built on accountability and deep science!
bmzedvf5d
oh wow thanks i’ll check this out :)
quhbtxfh4d
I'm a productivity coach. I've coached so many people and I can tell you this – coaching pays off IF you're willing to do the work in the end. But yes, if that's out the way, a coach can definitely help you cut hours of misery from your workflow.
bkcubvbk4d
I beg to differ. So many people are stuck doing the same things the same ways and expecting to be more productive if only they work more. That's not the solution, unfortunately.
hatgchcq4d
Focusmate is good! My clients have used it and they found it helpful.
irjnpiy4d
never heard of focus mate till now, thanks all.
nyknkjg4d
looks cool.
cbmjjnc4d
$5 is nothing for a subscription either.
uckzdzuypipcckd4d
I've hired someone on craigslist to watch me work and avoid me slacking off on Facebook
yazzsbbbfohlqer4d
But that's more logistical effort than using an app
uhnbtkz2d
Exactly, the 5$ is a joke and I hope it grows well and my investment makes a rich f to retire in the mountains soon 😛
pzrlsaa2d
focusmate - go use it remote folks if you aren't productive
yaknjrt21h
i just tried it out, it works!
phezlku20h
thoxepgz awesome, keep at it
