Taking notes on Zoom calls with Asana [VIDEO]

If you're not careful, the time spent in a meeting can be wasted if they don't have a clear agenda or if the action items aren't clearly identified for the team.

In this video, I'll show you how I've set up my content calendar. This is great if you need to plan when you're publishing blog posts, YouTube videos or even a podcast. You can use Asana to plan the content, the status of each post and manage the action items that need to be completed.
