How to add a numeric field to many projects

Let’s say you need to add a numeric custom fields to many projects. For example a budget in dollars. You don’t want to manually add the field to every project.

The trick is to create a portfolio and add all those projects in (that is the manual part). Then go to the workload tab and choose the budget field as the effort metric. Asana will allow you to add the field to every single project if they don’t already have it.

You’re welcome :slightly_smiling_face:


Thank you for that. Is it possible with non-numeric fields as well?

No, I’m afraid not, @Youssef.
