Custom Fields with Default Values

adding custom fields for custom fields like a drop down would be a really great feature.
also, having a check box custom as a custom field will be useful as well

sorry for typing custom fields for custom fields, i meant Default Value for Custom Fields

I also require this feature of ability to set a default value for dropdown type of custom field

I’d love to see this feature too. We use a custom field for priority and want the default to be ‘TBD’ (To Be Determined) rather than the ambiguous ‘-’

@Marie is there any way to give old posts like this a new life? I feel like I’m just adding on to a post that will never see the limelight.

Hi @Fonti, commenting on an old post automatically brings it back at the top of the Forum, so it’s the best way to increase its visibility!

I would like to see this too. As a new Asana user I’m kind of shocked to see something so basic is still missing after over a year…!

FYI this capability is available in my Flowsana integration using its If-Then Rule feature:

Is this an option yet?

Using Flowsana is overkill for what we are trying to accomplish.

Sorry to hear that :grinning:!

Are you on Asana Business? If so, you can use the new Asana rules function to set a value for a custom field when a new task is added. If you’re on Asana Premium, then the Asana rules options are limited and don’t include this functionality, and Flowsana is your only option for accomplishing it.

Just note that you may not have it yet - it’s rolling out over the next two weeks or so.

Thanks for the information Phil.

Ahh, I would love to be able to set a default value (or just by default the first value being default), but I also see how the Rules feature which is part of Business, is part of Asana’s business model to not have this feature… :’(
