Is it possible to assign how much time a task should take?

Similarly - is there a way to see all the time of each task added up within one project to be able to see how much time each person needs to spend?

Hey @Stella_Shepherd

If you’re using Asana premium, I suggest adding a custom field for time estimation to the Project in question- be sure you select numerical value as the type of custom field. Once you multi-select the Tasks in your Project, Asana will calculate the total sum of the custom fields with numerical values in the Task pane to the right.

A screenshot with additional details from a similar thread are available at the following link below:

With regard to time tracking software, I invite you to take a look at the various time tracking software integrations available to you at the following link:

Hope this help Stella!

hello, TMetric https://tmetric.com integrates with Asana. If you use it for time tracking, in TMetric menu bar (in Reports) you will see tasks summary that will automatically make all the time calculations and generate the chart with the detailed project info for that task.
