Days between creation and completion


Is there a way I can get some stats on the time my team spends completing our tasks? I would like to see at least an average for each user on how many days past from task creation to completion so I can periodically follow up on their efficiency. Getting detailed info on how many days each one used by task would be ideal.


You can use Harvest to track time, maybe that would answer your need?


My first thought was also time tracking. If you don’t want to use an add-on and you have a premium account you can use custom fields. I found @Kaitie’s post extremely helpful. I’d watch her video beginning at 25:00. Do you track your time?

My second thought was, if you can run an advanced search and save it you can set parameters such as: assigned to joe, created in the last 60 days, completed in the last 5 days. That would take a little evaluation on your part to determine the results but could be a workaround.


I appreciate very much that info. First, I figure if you guys are talking workarounds and third party apps, asana has no way to do this. I was hoping that asana, which already has those two dates, could give me the subtraction. I’m sure efficiency is crucial for most teams; having a bar chart on the dashboard to follow this up would go a long way.

The video was very helpful; asking for my team for a bit more work with a new custom field, then exporting and building pivot reports, I will get the info I need.


Hi Luis! an other option you can use is manually, export csv and getting the difference between those dates in Excel or google sheet. I can help you with a video if you want.
