Cross Project Milestone Dependency Tracing in Portfolio?

Hello!
Within a project, the Timeline shows great tracer lines between tasks and milestones that have dependencies and due dates.

However, it looks like we don’t see those lines on the Portfolio timeline when a milestone from one project is marked as dependent on a milestone from another project. (Here both milestones from the Data Point 1 project are dependent on the “BU” Milestone in the Automation Job project.

Is there a way to display those? If not, I’d like to request that as a feature.

Hi @Christopher_Yi and thank you for sharing your feedback with us!

You are correct here. As it stands, cross dependancies are not display in Portfolio’s Timelines but I agree it would be super helpful! Hopefully, this is something we can consider for future improvements! :crossed_fingers:t5:

Have a great Friday!

@Christopher_Yi,

Until/if that becomes available:

If you make one Asana project where each task represents one of your own projects, then you can use the task dependency feature to indicate your project dependencies and see them on a “projects timeline” which is effectively what that one Asana project’s timeline will be in this case.

I have a custom solution referred to in https://forum.asana.com/t/okr-tracking-in-asana/127/9 that uses multiple linked Asana projects for a powerful, flexible related solution.
