Automated Time Tracking

I’d like to have the time tracking feature native to ASANA activated automatically when a task is created or moved to a specific section, and disabled when the task is marked as complete.

Note: Not a solution but marked as such to elevate a key reply

Hi @Shaun_Prakesh_Stanle , welcome to the forum :wave:

For what it’s worth, you can derive such information by creating a chart in Dashboard or Reporting using these settings below:

‘Time to complete’ will count the time from task creation until task completion.
‘Time in section’ will count the time the task is within a certain section.
‘Time in custom field’ will count the time that a task was marked with a specific value/option of a custom field.


This does not appear to be a trigger to start the timer though?

Actually, for my project it would be very helpfull to have a rule that would start time tracking automatically by moving it to a certain section.
@Asana_Rules, help me!
