"Days open" should stop counting once a task has been completed


This image explains it all. Why is Asana changing the “days open” count, when the task has already been completed. A completed task by my definition is not open anymore.

I am not sure this is expected behaviour.

Hi @SPurz , I would imagine that your field ‘Days open’ is a formula custom field that is leveraging the Today input. Therefore, every day, Asana will update this field, even if it is completed.

So this is expected behaviour.

In order to stop this from happening, I would clear the other field(s) that is used in the ‘Days open’ formula, once the task is completed, either manually or using a rule if the condition can be met and actioned.
