Add ability to see the column name in the advanced search report

In the search report you can select multiple columns to include for a project as per: Advanced Search: you can now search by column in your Board project

However, in the search report that is generated, it doesn’t show the column each result is within. This would be really useful as we use this as a to do list we sent out to people, but if someone has tasks from column A and someone has tasks from columns A and B and someone else has tasks from column C, it’s not possible for them to see on the search report generated which column there tasks are in.

So if the first person has a task of ‘Write report for product launch’ and the column is about the Window Cleaning product they just see ‘Write report for product launch’ in the search report and they don’t know it’s about the Window Cleaning product so it could be for any of the other products/columns.

Hi @anon75030614, thanks for reaching out and sharing your feedback with us!

You are right, it’s currently not possible to create a report and see the column each result is within.

@lpb I wonder if this is possible with Asana2Go? :slight_smile:

Hi @anon75030614 and thanks @Emily_Roman,

Yes, Asana2Go has a few output formats that show Sections/Columns. (But I voted for your suggestion too!)

Some of the List… reports show Sections/Columns, for example this one:

Also, see Responsive list view, multi-column sorts, hide/show 21 columns, filter-as-you-type, and more: Asana2Go Interactive Tables ✨ for an interactive tabular version that has a table column for Section/Column that you an sort:

Hope one of those might help,
