Custom numeric field with Time format hh:mm

I’d really like to see a time format added to custom numeric fields so we can enter hh:mm totals to the custom fields and have them added up at the bottom (we use them to record how much time was spent on each task against a set hours retainer, and how many hrs we have left in that month. we’re currently muddling through by converting hours and minutes to a decimal - but it’s not ideal.

Hi @Martine_Warburton, welcome to the Asana Community Forum! I’ve your feedback to our #productfeedback category to allow other users to upvote for this feature.

The way to achieve this at the moment is to create a number-type custom field to hold your estimated hours. You can see the “Costing” example in the Asana Guide here for more details.

Thanks Emily. Yes we are using the custom number field currently but as it’s decimals it’s hard to enter say 1hr 23mins without getting a calculator out.
