Asana does not communicate on their roadmap. My personal guess: they won’t, for 2 reasons: other 3rd party do it well, a tiny portion of users need it. (I don’t work for Asana)
For T3. Rules: You can apply rules based on any custom field, or all custom fields, BUT not only certain custom fields: Need “Contains only” option for multi-select fields in Rules
Thanks @Christina_Davies, I feel like for now this is not a BUT but just a missing feature. Feel free to challenge.
Today was my regular check, I believe the list is still correct, nothing to remove.
@Gerald_Thomas I created B6.9 and B6.10, does it make sense?
Also added B3.5 B8.1 B7.3 B7.4
Hi @Bastien_Siebman, I think B8.1 is no longer an issue (!)
I added B7.5 and B8.1 is indeed fixed!
Even as product owner, I miss that feature.
Tables in task descriptions are already announced. But I think code blocks are much more important, because then Asana gets relevant for a whole new target group.
I understand. I don’t see it as a BUT but just a missing feature…
Added 2 BUTs:
B2.4 A template allows to define due dates relative to project start or due date BUT a task converted to a project using a template in a rule will use the trigger date.
B9.1 A task audit trail will show an incoming mention BUT it won’t show future mentions if the source task was recurring.
@Bastien_Siebman , a suggestion for B4.2:
When you add custom fields to a Portfolio, you can ‘Add or hide fields’ in the status update of all the projects that belong to that portfolio BUT if you add custom fields to a nested Portfolio, then these custom fields are not available in the ‘Add or hide fields’ part of the Portfolio’s status update (in the portfolios ‘Progress’ tab). Tricky to summarise
I’ll collect my brain on the floor and get back to you shortly
If I re-phrase, a status update at the portfolio level won’t let you hide or show fields? what’s the link with nested portfolios?
Correct, a status update of a portfolio (from its ‘Progress’ tab) cannot show/hide any custom fields.
The only way (that I know of) to add such custom fields to a portfolio is to nest that portfolio in a ‘master’ portfolio in which those custom fields are added to. So even by doing this, these fields cannot be shown/hidden in the status update of such portfolios that are nested within the master portfolio.
That seems like a very specific use case, I’ll put it aside for now if that’s ok with you.
You can add text fields to your tasks BUT you can’t search them! For example, I have a text field called PO#, but I can’t use the search feature to find any individual POs.
You can search text fields. Have you tried Advanced Search > Add filter > Custom field?
I had attempted that, and I just did again. Using “Contains the words” did not work. However, I just now had success using “Is exactly” which is a little less convenient if I don’t know the entire PO, but at least workable.
