has this changed for the Business plans?

What is “admin view?” Can you describe the view in terms Asana uses, or show a screenshot of the surrounding areas so we can identify where the problem is?



And also check the “id” in the tasks URL to make sure they are exactly the same tasks and not duplicates

Hi - I run traffic for our creative team and do the advanced search with all my assignees on any given day. It was working fine yesterday and mid-day just stopped showing.

These are not duplicate tasks, some are subtasks and others are individual tasks. I no longer have the option to mark the task for approval, just to make it a milestone task.


I can’t reproduce this in search results view. If I right click tasks there I can either Mark as Milestone or Mark as Approval.

But I’ve seen other reports here in the Forum and Slack of recent issues with Approvals not being available. Perhaps @Vanessa_N would know?

Yes, typically I have those choices. But at midday yesterday, it disappeared. Still shows the ones I’ve marked with the assignee view, but as an admin, I cannot see. So, strange! We have an Asana business division plan with 50 users

Hi everyone, thanks for reporting this issue and apologies for the trouble! This was a known issue and it has been solved. You should be able to see Approvals now but let me know if you still experience any issues!


thank you so much for the update @Emily_Roman confirmed back to working order. All lanes clear for traffic!
