Feature Request: Snooze tasks from 'Today'


#1

One of my favourite things about Asana is how I can leave most of my tasks in “Upcoming” and “Later” so that I can focus on a select number of tasks in “Today”.

I often have tasks that I don’t want to work on today, but I want to be reminded of on a future day.

My workaround at present is to set a Due Date in the future and put the task into Upcoming or Later. On the due date, the task is returned to my “Today” section for consideration.

However, this means I’m using Due Date for two different purposes:

  1. To tell me the date something is actually due
  2. To set a date on which I want to be reminded about the task.

I would like a ‘snooze’ feature that works similarly to Due Date (auto-promotes the task to “Today” on the date) but is separate so that I can clearly see real deadlines, rather than a mix of deadlines and reminder dates.

Welcome to the Forum @Craig_Drayton :blush: Thanks for sharing your feedback and some context to help us understand why this feature request could help you and your team! Hopefully this is something we can consider in future improvements, I’ll make sure to keep you posted as soon as I have some updates!

HI @Craig_Drayton

Do you have a premium account? If so, you can use start dates to achieve this. Tasks are promoted to Today by their start date, so that could be your reminder, and the due date would be the actual date by which it must be completed.

If you don’t have a premium account, you could add your own section in Today for tasks that you want to keep an eye on but not complete yet. I have a section titled ‘Ongoing’ for this very purpose.
