I would love to see it where you can group task assignees into Departments while viewing the workload. This would be helpful from a functional head standpoint to understand the timing of the project tasks on the department as well as from a PM standpoint. I don’t believe this is currently possible but would to be informed otherwise.
@MVanGessel, Were you aware of the filtering by role capability of Workload? It’s described here: https://asana.com/guide/help/premium/workload#gl-filter. It’s not exactly what you’re asking for, but if each person specified their department in their profile then you could filter by department using this. Another approach could be a separate portfolio/workload for each department (though perhaps you’d rather keep just one).
Hope one of those might help,
Nice tip Larry, did not know about the role filter!
