Thanks for creating this Larry, it’s really great.
Could I ask a quick question? We had already built multiple roll-up portfolio projects in Asana for quick access to lists of projects in different areas of our business and in different reporting line teams. Each ‘real’ project contains an overview task featuring a project description, and we multi-home those tasks into our portfolio projects. The key thing here is that our overview tasks can be multi-homed in multiple places - four or five isn’t uncommon.
When I tried the Asana2Go projects dashboard on one of our portfolio projects, it brought back some results which had me puzzled to start with. But on reflection I think I’ve figured out what’s up: Asana2Go doesn’t know which of the other projects that a multi-homed task belongs to is the ‘real’ project which I want to pull the details from, so it just uses the first one it sees.
I think the list of projects for a multi-homed task is just unicode ordered. Unfortunately right now we use a naming convention for our ‘real’ projects in the format [ABC1-123] (square brackets part of the name), so they’re always showing last in the list and thus rarely making it into the Asana2Go rollup report.
So, I’m thinking about renaming all our projects (and changing our naming convention for new ones) so that rather than almost always appearing last in a list of projects they’ll always appear first. But we’ve got a few hundred projects and that’ll take me a while, so before I do that I thought I’d ask: Am I right in my understanding of what’s happening and in thinking this is the best course of action?
Thanks again for creating the tool, I think it could be a real help to our team
