Implementing a RACI Matrix in Asana

Hi All,

Has anyone found a good way to implement a RACI Matrix in Asana. Is there a way to do it with custom fields? Or maybe this should be with Tagging?

Any ideas would be awesome :slight_smile:

Hi @Christine_Matheney, and thanks @Bastien_Siebman,

In Asana, each task corresponds to a row in the matrix, and I agree that custom fields would be a good way to represent the RACI part, specifically adding one custom field for each role/person who you’d want to appear as a column. All custom fields could be dropdowns with options R, A, C, I (or a subset if some roles never have certain of those values). A project may show up to five role “columns” at once, but if there are more than five they’d need to be viewed one-by-one in each task’s detail pane.

In Asana2Go, a simple custom report could generate the RACI Matrix table styled in any manner with as many columns as needed (no limitation of five), and those columns could even be dynamically generated such that one custom report could be used for any project that might have different, and different numbers of, roles.

See https://medium.com/asana-consulting-trilogi-solutions for more articles and videos on Asana2Go (including Eisenhower Matrix and SWOT Analysis reports).

Asana2Go offers many built-in print formats and unlimited customizability, which would allow you to add a RACI Matrix. This requires some HTML/CSS knowledge. I offer custom reports if you need assistance; contact me by Private Message here or via the links above.
