[Feature Request] Trash Bin

Asana needs a better way of managing archived and deleted goals/portfolio/projects/tasks.

I’d like manage both archived/deleted items (goals/portfolio/projects/tasks/subtasks) in a typical trash bin. For both archive and trash bin, it would be nice to see the original location for each item.

For trash bin:
Especially for the trash bin, we should be able to “empty the trash” instead of needing to open individual deleted item to permanently delete it. This really is not an acceptable workflow.

For archived items:

  1. Archived projects showing up on the left panel under other unarchived projects is not a very clean way of handling this because as the number of projects and teams grow, this list becomes unmanageable. It would better if we can hide/show archived projects on team’s overview page.

  2. Archived projects really should not show up in portfolios as default. It would be nice to have a button to show/hide archived projects in a certain portfolio.

Hi @Michelle_Ho, thanks for providing this feedback!

We do have an existing thread similar to your request for archive projects so you can add your vote here if you wish: Ability to access archived projects from the Team home page :slight_smile:

I’ve updated your title slightly to reflect that this thread is now related to a “trash bin” instead :slight_smile: I’ll keep you posted if I have any updates on this :slight_smile:
