Filtering using the "Projects" filer

As a portfolio manager want to filter the tasks of my sprint board using the “Project list” so I can run the stand-up for multiple projects during the same meeting.

Hi @Giorgio_Alcantara, welcome to the Asana Community Forum!

We currently offer the option “Search this project” and you can search by specific parameters and filter your tasks.

I hope this helps! But please let me know if this is not what you are looking for :slight_smile: I’d be happy to investigate it further!

Hi @Emily_Roman,

Many thanks for your reply. Actually, that does not help with my problem. I have a field that lists the Projects that are linked to a task in my summary board. For some reason, I cannot filter or sort using this field. When I expand the options, I can only move to left/right, hide, or set the column width.

Yes, I replicate this behavior. The Projects field can be blank, or have 1 Project, or numerous Projects, listed in an order that the user can’t control. Therefore, I could see that an attempt at sorting may not be satisfactory. To enable more rational sorting, we would need:

  • Modification of the multi-homing concept (because excessive multi-homing as a workaround causes Project lists to be elongated)
  • Provide more controllability of a range of behaviors such as what tasks and subtasks get displayed when and where (because the multi-homing workarounds to address this concern tend to clutter the Projects field)
  • Provide sticky user-driven reordering (or alternatively, a rule-driven or list or worst case, alphanumeric reordering) of Projects in the Projects field including bulk operations
    Or, just sort on whatever is there, knowing that " Aardvark Walrus " will sort far from " Walrus Aardvark " and from " Pangolin Aardvark Walrus " and just deciding to cope with that.
