Add "Weekly Focus" feature on Desktop

Using the Weekly Focus feature in My Tasks on mobile is great.
Please bring it to the desktop!


Hi @Paul_Grobler , I’m not entirely sure what is happening with this ‘Focus’ feature, which seems to be driven by the mobile app.

A few months ago when it first appeared, I created a focus task ‘Test A’ in the mobile app, which then automatically created a section in My tasks called ‘:pushpin: Focus tasks’ and added that task there (note it was an actual task).

Testing it today in another space, from the mobile app, it did not do the above, instead it just appeared as ‘Test 1’ in the image below, adding a header in My Tasks, but more like a ‘note’ rather than a task.

It seems the focus tasks were replaced with this weekly focus note instead :thinking:
@Marie , is that the case? Seems so in the guide

PS: when I close the ‘Weekly focus’ banner on desktop, there does not seem to be an obvious way of getting it back to display in My tasks. :thinking:

@Richard_Sather I Saw both these features, but think they are unrelated. The “weekly focus” is just a textbox on the mobile interface and does not link to any tasks. The ‘:pushpin: Focus tasks’ is just a section that is created at the top of My Tasks.

Hey guys,

Just started using Asana however I am unable to see or set the ‘weekly focus’ through my iPhone (latest update for everything)

Would love to use this feature as because I cannot set this, the widget feature is unusable

Any Ideas?

Thank you


Me too. Can’t find it on the phone anymore under My Tasks. It must be missing.


I can’t seem to find the focus feature either despite their being a widget that has a button “Set Focus”

However when I tap the “set focus” button, the app simply opens up to My Tasks view


Same thing here, my widget displays the last (very outdated) weekly Focus but I cannot update the Focus anywhere. There’s nowhere to do it, at least as far as I can see on iPhone or a Mac using Chrome, all latest updates.

Guess I’ll have to delete my widget.


I found the weekly focus in my phone’s app by going to My Tasks and then pressing the three dots in the top right corner to select the Board View. It’s NOT easy to find and, let’s be honest, not the best UI design.

Also - I don’t understand why you can’t change your Weekly Focus on Desktop??? :woman_shrugging:t4:
