- I manage several projects at the same time, which I use tags to identify the project or similar tasks and colour code them, so at a glance, when I use the My Tasks section, I sort by due date and I start at the top and work my way down, but seeing the tags, helps me to visually quantify where my focus should be on any given day.
- At present, adding tags is not a default field when adding/creating a task, which I have to use Tab + T or navigate to the Add Tag section to add the Tag field.
- This is tiresome after a while especially if I create a lot of new tasks in one day and just wished that it was there by default or I can add any fields that I think is important to be a default field when creating a task.
- You could create a custom field and then apply it to every project etc. but they won’t work like the tag function and will be time-consuming to do.
As a user I would like to be able to pick and choose what fields I want as the default when adding/creating a new task
You can save Tags in your default view! Check out how you can do this in the following article, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any follow-up questions
Thanks for this, but this is what I do at present as a work around, but I use Asana mostly on the app, which you do not have a default field for tags and also in this view and that is what makes it annoying. If you can have it as an option to add as a default column in this view https://asana.com/guide/help/views/basics#gl-default, why omit it on mobile and in the card view. Does not make sense to me from a product development perspective. It is either you give the option for all views or none.
Hi @Jason_Ali and thanks for the swift reply! When you’re saving a view on the web, it automatically applies to the mobile app too!
From what I see in your screenshot, you’re creating tasks from your My Tasks. The explanation I gave you above applies to Projects, but not to my Tasks. I would recommend adding your vote to this thread which covers specifically this topic: Need ability to set Tags via Quick Add Task or tasks created via My Tasks
Hope this helps, but let me know if you have any questions!
@Marie, this is exactly what I am talking about and have just voted for it. Thanks.
