I've been using Asana to manage tasks for a marketing team. Overall, I love its functionality. But I find that a lot of our tasks are very similar, with only dates changing. They are set activities that need to be done by fixed people, at a fixed proximity to an event. They could be grouped into three or four event types.
E.g. For event type 'Small Event', I always need the following to happen:
- 4 weeks before the event, person X must create something.
- 3 weeks before the event, person Y must do something.
- 2 weeks before the event, person X must do something.
I'm looking for some way (preferably an app like Asana) to not have to create the list of tasks each time, as it is fairly time consuming, and it doesn't need to be. I want to tell it that I have an event coming up, and it generates all of the tasks that need to be done, when they are due, and then assigns those tasks to the standard people.
I've looked around at most other task management apps (producteev, todoist, etc.) and they don't seem to offer this either. I'm willing to look outside of mobile/web apps, but they would be used by a team, and so ease of use would need to be fairly high to ensure that they can and actually do use the software.
Budget: sell me a dream and I'll go for it. I'm happy for Web-based or Android apps.
