Include Creator field in the exported csv of advanced search and projects

Suggest to include the creator field in the task exported csv file.

Now we can search all tasks in advanced search by creator, but when we need to do statistics, it became tedious to export each creator one-by-one. So hope to see the creator field in the exported csv for our easier reporting.

Thanks for sharing your feedback with us, @Evan_Sho! As it stands, the “Created by” column is not included when you export a project or a report to CSV. I recommend you checking the workaround shared by @lbp here: Reporting by Task Creator - #5 by lpb

We don’t have immediate plans to implement this feature but I’ll let you know if you have updates in the future!

Hi Emily, thanks for your swift reply. I did check that thread but it only mentions a workaround which is tedious if we have many users to report. Therefore I decided to start a thread so Asana will have an idea of how many users need this feature.

Related to this , the “created by” field does not appear in the exported CSV. Is there a way to do so?

Welcome, @Fabricio_Watanabe,

I’ve moved your post to a more relevant thread. You can click the title to scroll to the top and vote with the purple Vote button.

You can also use my Asana2Go to export CSVs that you custom design. You’d want to start with CSV - Detailed and just add the one field.




Thank you! @lpb

Hi @Brandon_Day, welcome to our Community Forum! At this time it’s not possible to include “Created by” in the project export. Apologies for the inconvenience. This is not a bug, but I do understand that having this option would be helpful. I’ve gone ahead and merged your post into the Product Feedback thread for this feature request so you can add your vote there too.

I’d also recommend following the workaround shared by @lpb in this post.
