Hi @Martynas.P, thanks for reaching out!

It’s not currently possible to set multi-year Goals in Asana. That said, I’m going to move this post to #productfeedback so folks in the community can upvote it and so our developers can get a better look at the needs of our members :slight_smile:

@Rebecca_McGrath can’t you choose multi-year from the date and leave the “period” blank?

When will it be possible to select time periods beyond Q4 23 in Goals?

Hi @Steven_Rosseel, welcome to the Asana Community Forum :wave:

While this feature isn’t available at this time, hopefully it’s something our Product team can implement in the future

We do have an existing thread for this feature request in the #productfeedback category so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with the existing one to consolidate feedback.

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if I have any updates :slight_smile:

As far as I can see, although I can add the correct due date (eg. based on a 3-yr or 5-yr strategic plan) there’s no way to remove the time period at the moment (which only goes to the end of 2023). This means for my client I can either put an incorrect time period or a conflicting time period and due date (I’ve gone for the latter so at least the true ‘due date’ is visible somewhere)

Is it really not possible to set 3 or 5 year goals? This seems such an oversight and probably an easy fix. For my clients I need to be able to set 5 year goals. Is there any word on making this possible?

Not that we know of, we’ll have to be patient.

This is really needed especially for users whose FY starts after Jan. 1st.
When they set a year long goal, FY pushes to the next year, making them unable to plan for the next year!

ex) If their FY started on Apr.1st 2022, When they create a year long goal, Asana shows up as FY23 (2022.04.01 ~ 2023.03.31).

If they were to plan out for the next year, it should go to FY24 but since Asana doesn’t support that, they can’t even plan for the next year.

Asana’s product team really needs to take this into consideration.
