How do I create a custom field of type Person?


We need a number of fields of type ‘Person’ - that allows us to select our Asana teammates. For example, we need ‘approver’ and ‘tester’ fields for our basic development workflows. It seems like a very basic feature but I can’t seem to figure out how to do this. Is this possible? Any workarounds?

Hi @jsol, thanks for reaching out! As it stands, it’s currently not possible to add another field that works similar to the “Assignee” field, where you can type your teammates names in Asana and assign them to the field. You can upvote for this feature here: Users in custom fields

As a workaround, you can create a text custom field and manually type the person’s name.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!
