I currently have a high priority task staring me in the face. When I went to grab assets from the Asana task this morning I noticed the information “5 days ago” under the last communication I had about this get-it-done-yesterday task. It didn’t make feel good! I thought, “wow! Has it seriously been 5 days and I haven’t made needed progress on this?” Then I realized it was counting the weekend. So, in reality, only 2-3 days had passed, which was much more reassuring.
It occurred to me that it would be nice to be able to change how Asana counts days based on your agreed upon work culture - does your organization regularly work weekends, or not? Is it important to count those weekend days as time elapsed on a project or is it honestly worse for your mental health to do that? This could be a very culture-positive, mental-health positive feature, and one that organizations might find empowering in terms of physically demonstrating support for their workers personal lives and well-being. Sure, it’s small, but small doesn’t mean empty.
Looking at other forum topics, it sounds like this would work well with the ability to change how the weekend is allocated. For instance, for our friends in the Middle East.
