in My Tasks, always show Project Name, even for subtasks

In the My Tasks view, it would be great to display the Project “bubble” (looks like a tag bubble) for subtasks, the same way it is displayed for tasks.

More generally, we would be happy to pay to have the option to customize our user experience with such features. What do you think ?

Thanks for reading,


I agree. We use subtasks for a lot of things and it would be very helpful for our team to be able to see that project “bubble” on both tasks and subtasks when working out of the my tasks view.

Thanks for starting this topic!


I also agree that this is something that is missing.

And your last note about customisation i fully support. People use Asana in different ways, but there is not that many ways to customise view and functionality.

Why im not able to just check/uncheck a box somewhere in setting to show project or not. The same could be said about a lot of things in Asana.

I agree. I have to open each task to see the project category.

Great point! This would improve our experience as well.

Agreed. This is a very silly piece to be missing, and it would be greatly helpful to have.

Agree!! Here will improve our usability a lot!

We also need this. At my department we’re considering going premium, but there’s one thing that really annoys people. We’re using tasks as “containers” and subtasks as the things that need to get done. This is recommended in a lot of “how to”-manuals and it works great for us except for one problem that annoys the heck our of people: That subtasks don’t have the project label from the project that it’s parent is in which makes it pretty hard for people to distinguish which tasks belong to which project when looking at “My tasks”. We know that we can get subtasks to show project labels by manually adding the subtask to the project but this wont work for us (or most people I am sure) because of two things:

  1. Subtasks then show up along with tasks in the project view which creates a royal mess of tasks and subtasks mixed together and totally destroys the idea of maintaining order and structure through keeping subtasks within tasks.

  2. Every time we create a subtasks we would have to remember to manually add it to a project. This takes away the idea of Asana working seamlessly and without hassle.

Really hope to see a solution to this!


My team is facing this same challenge!

And actually up until about a week or two ago we could at least sort in “My Tasks” by project and the subtask would be viewable from there. This has now gone away. Have you noticed this too?

Haven’t noticed this (yet), but it sounds annoying.

I’d like to add my team’s frustration here. We use both tasks and subtasks frequently. Having all subtasks in the My Tasks view be grouped together at the bottom under “No Projects” does not give us a complete picture of responsibilities when we are sorting by project in that view.

Is there a technical reason why subtasks are grouped this way?

This is a big challenge for our team. Have not seen any response from the Asana team about when this can be resolved.

Having this feature would REALLY help with our scrum meetings. I also use Asana to compile biweekly updates to my manager–would be great if the project name could be associated in the task export feature as well.

Hope this gets resolved soon.

We’re forced to write the project name at the beginning of every SUBTASK name. Cumbersome.

And to use the IOS app, we’re forced to write the project name at the beginning of every TASK name. wah!

Seems this would quite easy to implement!


You should have the option to lock the subtasks to the parent task. Currently, they are being treated as separate tasks whose only relation is their location in ASANA. Any and all task data should be able to be locked into the task no matter where it is, in a subtask, board or report. If a user wanted to make a report of board tasks to add custom fields they should be able to even though custom fields aren’t visible in a board project.

Any progress on this? This would be a crucial feature for my team as well. And such a simple thing to fix, you would at least imagine!

Asana, please fix this asap!


Yes please…
