This is killing me. I LOVE Asana. But, this tiny tiny feature that seems to make so much sense has been a forum topic for years.
Let me describe my situation (similar to many others on here). I run a 1-person marketing agency. I have 10-20 projects at any given time. I open the project I’m focusing on at the time and I leave it open. Every task I add needs to be assigned to me (because of some confusion I’ve had with clients logging and not knowing whether a task is assigned to me or them). Yes, I understand I can assign every task individually or go up and add them in “My Tasks”, HOWEVER, here’s the problem. 98% of my tasks are created by me and should be assigned to me. I feel like I’m going insane when I assign each task, one by one, to me right after creating it. BUT, adding in “My Tasks” is completely and totally unproductive because it adds 3-4 additional steps for EVERY task. I work IN the project. I add tasks IN the project (at a pretty high speed). Manually assigning all my tasks to myself is unsustainable. And, jumping back to my tasks every time is totally unproductive and the flow is cumbersome.
Thank you for the AMAZING product. PLEASE add this feature to help us all stay sane. And, it should be added as a feature with three options:
- Auto-assign tasks to the task creator
- Auto-assign tasks to a specific user (like if my client adds tasks, and they are always meant for me, it should be auto-assigned to me so s/he doesn’t have to do that every time)
- or Don’t auto-assign. Manually assign as needed.
We’re cheering for this. Please please make it
