I have recently undertaken the initiative to move our project management reporting into Asana. My plan was to add our projects to a few portfolios and add a number of customised fields on a portfolio level which would include data we would like to report on. However, the challenge I am facing is that a lot of our projects are customer facing within Asana and we would not like our customers to see internal information. Is there any workaround we could apply here? I am open to using a different approach as well if you have other suggestions.
Thank you for helping out! I just tried your suggestion and it is either not working anymore or I am doing something wrong. When you say to use a non-org-wide field, do you mean to create if from the ‘Add field’ plus sign within the portfolio?
You may not be able to remove the fields from the library but I’m not positive; I know I’ve been prevented from doing so in some circumstances but not 100% you never can, so you could try it:
Go to an existing portfolio or project that has the custom field and edit it (Customize > hover the custom field and a pencil icon appears > click it). Try to uncheck the box for Add to org’s library. If you can’t you’ll have to create another (optionally removing this one if it doesn’t adversely affect other usage).
