Allow to see and keep track of comments edits



I would also like to see this. When a comment is deleted it isn’t logged and it isn’t recoverable.

Yes, deleting comments can be convenient at times, but the way it has been implemented could lead to lost data, intentional or unintentional. Without it being logged, it could lead to a lack of awareness or confusion as to what happened.

An organization’s data integrity shouldn’t be at risk from one drunken or disgruntled member.


Thank you Marie!


I agree with Vince. The whole idea with a work task management software like Asana iis to have multiple users. Therefore, an organization’s data integrity should be of high priority. There are several issues with Asana that to me indicate this is not the case. Here is a short, non-complete list of some things:

  1. Why have an “audit trail” if you can delete items from it?
  2. Why is there no way of customizing user privileges (more than a very rudimentary implementation)? An administrator/project manager role is normally to control things. There is no such control in Asana. All internal users are allowed to change almost everything.
  3. It is possible to delete a task WITHOUT anybody else getting a notification, not even the person who created the task or the main responsible. This is even worse than non-recovery of comments.

With this said, Asana team, please consider threads like these a sign that you need to prioritize data integrity.
