How to Track Slippage?

I am wondering how other people track slippage on their projects in Asana? Right now, we change the due date whenever the project is delayed reflecting the new date it will be delivered. This makes it very manual later if we want to see how far the project slipped from the original delivery date as you must look at the details of the task for what the original date was and manually calculate the difference. As we are team that handles over 200 projects a month, we are not able to do this on a large scale. Any suggestions on how to track slippage and the specifics of what causes the project to slip would be greatly appreciated.

Have a project custom field with the initial start date?


Hi @Andrea_Richards, welcome to the Community Forum!

Adding to what @Bastien_Siebman mentioned, you can add custom fields to your project. Please find more information and how to create fields in this article. You can create a field for stage, priority, cost, or anything else that’s important to your workflow, team, and company. In your case, you can create a field to add more details about the specifics of what causes the project to slip and then you’ll be able to create reports.

I hope this helps!
