I keep encountering an issue where tasks change virtual hands (multiple times), and it is not that easy to know who created the task in the first place.
I am aware I can run a custom search, or dig through the task update history itself, but that is not that optimal when dealing with a heavy workload. Not to mention, that is not something you could ask a Client to do, or expect an Engineer to stop and solve on their own.
What I thought could help improve the issue, is to add a task Created By + User Name & Icon, and leave that set to display ON by default.
By doing so, anyone can quickly see who created a task in case they are required for clarification. It also makes life a lot easier for Clients and Developers.
Requested Design Change:
- Asana already tracks created by, which one can run searches for; the backend work should already be in place.
- You just need to account for the extra field being displayed within the task header; assignee should be left blank until assigned per the normal process.
I hope this helps. I did a search and could not find anything matching my suggestion. Please let me know if something was already posted.
