How do I delete a Project in the Asana App?

I cannot find this very simple function, is it even in the app?

Also, when looking at the “list view” in the app, my budgeting and the other tasks I added are missing and are only visible in the web browser. Is this on purpose…?

It is well hidden. You need to open the project, click on the title, then on the three dots menu in the corner.

Every single task should be shown in the app. Maybe you are not seeing the same workspace?

Awesome, thank you so much. It really is well hidden :smiley: But it´s there, so perfect. Between step “Clicking on the title” and being able to click on the three dots, one first needs to click on the overview tab, then the three dots appear.

As for the list view, I click on list view on the web app and on the android app. The difference I see is that while the web app shows me the tabs I created (due date, responsibility, category, team, budget), when I open the android app, I can only see due date and who it is assigned to, the custom tabs are missing. But I can see them when opening the actual task. Is there a way to also see them in list view?

Hi @Bastien_Siebman,

Can you show a screenshot? I didn’t think the Android app had all of the functionality, including deletion of projects. I don’t see what you are describing.

Thanks,

Katie

@Jaws_TGWS84, In the Android app there’s no way to see custom fields in list view (as in the web app), only in task detail view.

@Katie_Reynolds, in the Android app:

  1. Click Projects in the footer
  2. Click a project
  3. Click the down arrow project menu and select Overview
  4. The choices include a few project actions including Archive and Delete.

Hope that makes sense,

Larry

@lpb,

Thank you! That is buried! I would have never found it without your directions.

Thanks again!

@Katie_Reynolds, I agree–it’s not intuitive that the overflow menu contents change depending on whether you’re in Project > List or Project > Overview, but I can see the hardship in making this functionality discoverable but not in the way.

Great, thank you for the clarification! Just one more question: if you have a quick look at my screenshot I uploaded, how is it that in calendar view, I only see the color of one task (in this case “conventions”)? Is it possible to see all the colors?

Thanks a lot!

@Jaws_TGWS84, I answered in your other thread:

I have a similar problem. We use Asana to set up a running calendar for our preschool curriculum. I have been looking at 2019 projects that were marked “completed” by former employees. I can change the date and add new thoughts, but the comments by the former employee will not go away. How do I wipe the slate clean…without copying and pasting to create a new project and deleting the old one? (Can I get rid of old comments?)
