How To Use Asana for Fast Design Approval?


Do you know what takes the longest in a creative design process? It’s the review and approval process.

Whether you are designing a poster or creating a video, your creative process can be stumped by unnecessary delays that are an inherent part of any creative production process. This is especially likely to happen during the review and approval part of your project, which essentially requires you to beg any relevant stakeholders to participate and that too on time. 

It is hard to manage the different files, centralize all the efforts, and keep in touch with all the people simultaneously. The inability to execute these tasks with perfection may lead to your project becoming increasingly complicated, and you have to drudge through it with way more struggle than you signed up for. 

Well, what if I told you there’s a way past that? With Asana (and GoVisually – but more of that later!), you can ensure that the design review and approval are as fast as lightning and as easy as a piece of cake!
