Here’s the thing - the “expert users” of Asana or the “champions” can easily understand the workarounds or the intricacies of assigning subtasks to projects in order to set custom fields, but it’s not us that experience the issues. We only suffer the criticism of “choosing an immature platform” or “what is this junk application” when we have to explain the workaround to other users and execs.
From our point of view it’s a simple fix:
- Automatically assign subtasks to the parent’s project, OR;
- Inherit any custom fields from the parent task
Then, when reviewing outstanding tasks, we can quickly order by priority (for example).
PLEASE ASANA - help make our lives, your champion’s lives, easier by implementing this critical feature.
