Hi,
I got an in-site notification this morning about changes to the “My Tasks” view (yay!). I’m curious why that change, or other smaller changes aren’t in the release notes. Is there somewhere users can look to see these smaller changes? This would be helpful both for keeping abreast of incremental improvements as well as for understanding “odd” behavior, such as the recently-reverted overdue task changes.

Thanks!

Hi @Shawn_Golley :wave:t3:

The new My tasks update is not yet available to all customers (but should be very soon), as such it will be included in January release notes! Decemeber release notes cover all changes that have happened in November and that are available to all Asana customers!

I hope this helps, but let me know if you have any follow-up questions!

Hi @Marie For those of us that have the new ‘My Tasks’ ‘improvements’ please can we have some explanation. It feels worse like I’m having to click more so I’d love to understand better.

This after the mobile ‘improvements’ where you removed the swipe bar shortcuts again feels like we’re making things first and its hard to fathom why.
thanks
Noel

Hi @Noel_Andrews, thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us! You can find more details and answers to common questions in our recent forum announcement: We're extending our spreadsheet view to My Tasks!. Please feel free to create new threads in the #productfeedback category for features you would like to see implemented and I’ll be happy to pass along your feedback to the product team! Thanks again :slight_smile:
