Thanks for the nice comment, @Amanda_Holt2!
You can’t remove the Status column in the Portfolios > Projects tab.
My answers were an attempt to use the existing project members and project owners info, but I’m sensing that’s not the right approach.
What I like to use for this kind of thing is what Asana calls “AORs” (Areas of Responsibility). Theirs are company wide, but you can adapt it for any purpose. Here’s one way:
Each task is the role (task title) and person (assignee). Your roles would be something like Developer, Designer, Team Lead.
These role rows are grouped into departments in my example (Custom Field “Dept”). You would use a custom field called Project perhaps. The view here is grouped by Dept, but you could instead change the view to be grouped by Assignee if you want to see it that way, perhaps to see who has multiple roles. You don’t have to use a Custom Field which is more effort; instead you can just use Sections–easier but less flexible.
Hope that helps,
