Filter projects by multiple fields (including custom) and save different filter views.

In case this should be implemented, it would be great to have more filtering operators like “is not”, “greater than or equal to”, “less than”, etc. as well as being able to add multiple filters on one project using AND/OR logic.

For example, being able to filter:
[Progress Field] >= 10 AND
[Priority Field] is not ‘low’

This is such basic functionality, can this please be added. It’s ridiculous that we cannot save views and filter by multiple fields - it really is stock standard database behaviour and should be available.

Exactly, I would like be able to have assignee filter saved for each team member so the list view can be more usable. But I have found the following workaround to do this. For some reason the rule stopped working last Friday when I copied my board for another team. I have tried deleting the rules and inserting them again and no success.

Here is how I set this up:

Create Section and Rules:

  • Section per team member
  • Rule: When task is assigned to “team member 1”, move task to comumn “team member 1”

** Section: stories in sprint.** All stories and its subtasks were always visible here even though they were assigned to a team member and appeared also in their section. It was easy to to see the progress of the story and view the load on each assignee. (RULE: When assigned to X, move task to Section X)

** Section.** Team member 1:
** Section:** Team member 2
** Section:** Team member 3
** Section:** Team member 4

Does anyone know how to fix this rule while we wait for the ability to save multiple filters?

It was so disappointing to find this thread asking for such an important feature since May 2019 and no solution or even roadmap for a solution.

Not being able to save a custom filter view is causing a lot of confusion and wasted time in our team. Please give us some update if this is planned.

@Rodrigo_Pontes Thus I moved to clickup 12 months ago… I can’t believe Asana still hasn’t added this essential feature I requested 3 years ago :exploding_head:

Any update on this? just started using Asana and find it hard to believe that I cannot save a custom view with a filter!

Been waiting for this since May 2019. Can we get an update?

Hi @Rebecca_McGrath any news on this topic? Upvoted already, maybe you could pull strings? :slight_smile:

In 3 years you couldn’t add filters on tags and text custom fields.
Can you explain why to us?

@Rebecca_McGrath

Any news on this feature? Hard to believe 3 years later something like this hasn’t been added yet. And it’s been crickets from the product team for over 6 months.

Hey @Daniel_Golubchik, Asana is definitely monitoring the votes and also views for all the product feedback request threads. However, they do not always comment on every single message in feedback request threads.

If you look at the features Asana has released over the past months you will notice there are quite a few, including some well-requested ones from the forum.

Has this still not been rolled out yet?!

Saved custom views is crucial to collaborative boards. I’ve been using features like this in notion for years and unfortunately have pivoted my team across both platforms since it takes 5 clicks to filter a board in asana that should take 2 clicks with saved custom filters.

Added my vote to this request.

Currently I often find myself creating redundant project to serve as the “filtered view” of another larger project. Being have to save and share a url to that filtered view would be great. (Heck even just a url that represents the filtered state that could be shared with project stakeholders would be great)

@Rebecca_McGrath (or other Asana Community Manager) while the OP marked this as solved that seems to have been more out of frustration than actually solved/accepted/rejected as a feature request if that makes a difference as input to product planning process.

Yes! Voted. And/or save custom quick filters with custom fields. Re:

Really wish we had this ability to save filters (just like in Google Sheets). It’s frustrating to have to set the filter up over and over because different teams need to see different drop down options. Saving the layout for everyone to use 1 category isn’t helpful. :frowning_face:

Added my vote as well. Such an important feature! Trying to get my team to use Asana as a simple database (reduce the # of excel sheets we are using) and we won’t be able to pull this off without being able to filter by multiple fields.

Background:

  • For the last year and a half, I have worked out of a project, which I call my “personal project.” Every task I’m assigned obviously goes to My Tasks, and a rule I set there forwards that task to my “personal project.” I work here on the day-to-day instead of My Tasks since there’s more flexibility within Projects than in My Tasks. That said, I frequently work with the filter “Just my tasks,” but have found it frustrating when I am trying to view the tasks in my project by multiple filters (for example, just my tasks, overdue and due today, and excluding tasks from specific projects). I know I can do an advanced search, but the usability and ease-of-access would be incredibly helpful…

Feature Request:

  • The ability to layer multiple filters when viewing any given project.

Hi @Joel_Lee ,

Yes that would be a super helpful feature, there is already a related topic here with over 200 votes as of today, this post will likely be merged with that, make you sure you give your vote here:

@Emily_Roman or @Marie will review for eventual merging.

Cheers,
Rosario

Just reviving this topic to say that multi-filtering, multi-sorting and saving different layouts with various visible fields, is a thing! :partying_face:
