Custom Fields in My Tasks

The ability to add custom fields to My Tasks would make a HUGE difference to our team!!!


Adding a vote for this feature as well, for this exact reason. When planning my day and adding tasks to my “Today” list, I want to know how long each task might take so that it’s easier to understand when I’ve overloaded myself.


Another +100 for showing Custom Fields in My Tasks. I’m trying to get teammates to adopt Asana but this is the one thing that’s holding some of them back.

It doesn’t work to have to use both Custom Fields and duplicate Tags to achieve the kind of visibility we need (without having to click into a project each time).

It’s been such a painful omission for so long, can you provide the UX logic behind not providing this ability? Or is it a schema issue that’s particularly difficult to solve for? Or are those of us who want this not using the tool as intended?


Another + 1.

Asana, are you there?


@Natalia @Marie It seems people would really like a response on this.

HI @Stephanie_Oberg, and thanks for bringing this up to my attention again. I don’t have an update on this right now, but we’re planning some updates for My Tasks later this year, so I should have more updates by then!

OK, thanks, I will try to be patient.

This is needed by our team too. I am new to Asana and I am confused as to why a user specified priority for each task isn’t a core functionality out of the box and isn’t available throughout views in the system.

+1 to this request. It’s probably the main thing holding me back from using Asana as my day-to-day planner, because it’s useful for daily prioritization to see custom fields that may be relevant, like estimate task time, priority-level, deadline flexibility etc, and currently I can only see those in individual projects which reduces the simplicity and usability of the My Tasks page for daily organization.


This is needed here too. It would be super useful to have size of the task and priority in the my task view. This is currently the only view I use for daily prioritization and to daily time estimation and without this custom fields the process is not smooth enough.


@Marie has there been any update on adding Custom Fields in My Tasks? Do you know when they are going to roll out the new updates?


Hi @Nicole_Brown, I don’t have any update just yet, but I’ll make sure to keep you posted via this thread as soon as I do!

Hey @Marie!

is there any news? :thinking:

@Lahcim, not just yet! I’m hoping to have some news on this topic with the next My Tasks update. i’ll keep you posted here, but I’d also recommend keeping an eye on our #announcements category (here is how you can follow it to be automatically notified of new annoucnements!)

any update ?

Massive +1 for this.
