Inbox filtering per team/project

Hi Asana, have you got some news about:

  • filter by team
  • filter bu project



The absence of Asana is incredible.
I’m really evaluating a porting to other solutions :frowning:

The porting will be a nightmare, but today there is a lot of more power and usable tools.

Yes please, we should discuss on Reddit (here is obviously forbidden) about alternative with manageable inboxes and porting possibilities. We are very frustrated too. It’s been many many years with Asana and I can sentence that they became more and more deaf to user requests year by year.
Very disappointed.


We have 240 projects and 9 teams. At this scale Inbox is useless for Project Managers.

Filtering is too poor. Comunication is not working cos Asana is missing simple feature like others platforms have - filtering by project or by portfolio or by team. Implementing it is so easy. Why it is not there yet?

We really looking into other solutions now cos this blocking issue.
And we are on Business plan…

Would be amazing to be able to filter the inbox view by project. It’s very distracting and inefficient to have to comb through messages from all the projects I’m on tagging me with questions and requests and have to be context switching throughout rather than being able to focus my time looking at one project’s inbox tags to me and then moving on to the next

Thanks for your feedback, @Jenna_Hasenkampf! We. already have a thread on this topic so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with Inbox filtering per team/project to consolidate feedback!


Upping this too. I’m a consultant hosting several client projects on our Asana space, and I need to be able to comb through my inbox for a specific project only.

Any news about when this will be resolved? We find it very confusing to manage messages because it is not possible to filter messages by project. This makes it hard to communicate.

Do you think someone will reply to Twitter?

As in Inbox is great to clear all my tasks.

Improvement or I would urge you to work on it.

  1. By Assignee wise - If I have privilege to filter with Assignee then I can clear all specific task asap.
  2. By Project wise: I can focus on the Project which is the most important to me as I am the director of the company,
  3. Ascending wise: - As it’s descending but as First Inbox Notification is also connected with following inbox notifications, So the challenge is that I don’t have a filter where I can go through the first older one and then following so I can connect all trail of update.
    4.Date wise: I can filter and quickly clear all notifications so I can start planning on my MY Task working.

Hope this make sense to the Asana Community, please just send your love if you agree on any point with your challenge or benefit to ease operations.

Hi ASANA in these 29 months could you evaluate this feature?
Or the dark theme has more priority than this?

Hello, from March 2019… do you have any solution?
Thank you!

We enjoy seeing the messages in our Asana inbox, however, need a way to sort by either project or team member. Is this possible?

Hi @Tamara_Bowen, thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback!

While this feature isn’t available at this time, hopefully it’s something our Product team can implement in the future

We do have an existing thread for this feature request in the #productfeedback category so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with the existing one to consolidate feedback.

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if I have any updates :slight_smile:
