When you write these release notes, please could you identify which plans the features are applicable as part of the post? Otherwise I have to click on each one to find out whether it’s supported on my plan type or not.

Hey Emily! Excited about the new “Field is changed” trigger for date fields. Can it trigger actions exactly on a task’s start date, like auto-assigning tasks or moving them to a specific project? Keen to understand its application for tasks kicking off on their start date.

Thanks for the insight!

Hi Emily,

Thank you for the update.

What changed exactly about " Asana for Tableau integration" ?
The web data connector already existed and the article does not seem to have changed in a while. Can you provide mor details about the release concerning Tableau ?

I noticed that with the Jira comment sync, comments from Jira to Asana will sync but not the other way around. Is there something we’re missing or is that feature not in place?

Thanks for your feedback, @Matthew_Hall! We will keep it in mind for future release notes!

@Mate with this update, you can create a rule that trigger a specific action when the Start date is changed or removed only. It’s currently not possible to trigger an action when the task approach it’s start date, only when the due date it’s approaching.

@Cyril_Diers with this update, you can extract project-level data from Asana into Tableau and build project-level reporting without waiting for hours for the extraction to finish. We have updated the Using the Asana Web Data Connector section and it should have more details about this!

@Mackenzie_Mollo it should work both ways! If it is still not working for you, I recommend you reaching out to our support team and share a quick screencast showing the issue: How to contact our Support Team ✉

I hope this helps!

A post was merged into an existing topic: Create Rule to allow assignment of tasks based on project “role”

Smaller teams on the Advanced tier also need to manage capacity :pleading_face:

Finally! So excited for this. https://help.asana.com/hc/en-us/articles/14073364747547-Your-Asana-account#gl-one-account

Hello Emily.
Unfortunately, the new features are only focused on the Enterprise Plan, which makes it difficult to expand the Platform within the organization.
The Capacity Plan, for example, is an extremely important feature for Team Planning.
