Asana: Keyboard Shortcuts Cheat Sheet

Have you ever asked yourself why some teammates seem to be power users of Asana, while others seem to struggle managing multiple tasks?

Writing about the most popular project management tools and software on the market, I read many project management forums and spend a lot of time comparing needs of users with features of apps and desktop solutions.

During my analysis of Asana, I thought it would have been a good idea to share with you a feature that’ll help you join the Asana power users club: keyboard shortcuts.

Simple, powerful.

So, I’ve put together a list of the 16 most common Asana keyboard shortcuts you need to manage all kinds of workflows. And I accompanied it with a handy graphic.
