Increase limit of 20 rules per project

No updates on this limit? :slight_smile:

This number is INSANELY low, especially because rules cannot use variables—

I just hit my limit and I need more than 20, stat. I can’t believe this is even a thing, TBH.

The rules system needs a complete tear down and remake, honestly.

Same here. I have a complex rule-set that automates away many of the tasks my team has to do…but as I’ve added new folks, because I can’t use variables or rule branching, I have to make separate rules per employee… IE "on assignment to Jack, move to column “jack’s tasks” then the same rule for "on assignment to Jill, move to column “Jill’s tasks”

Instead, I should be able to do one rule: "on assignment to move to column “'s task”

It is infuriating.

Also annoying; the forum removed my < > tags. Above should read like:

"on assignment to Jack, move to column “jack’s tasks” then the same rule for "on assignment to Jill, move to column “Jill’s tasks”

Instead, I should be able to do one rule: "on assignment to assignee move to column “assignee’s task”

Majorly agree on this. There is not enough logic or flexibility for rules, period, which is where the real value is in a tool like Asana. Need to remove or raise the cap to at least 100+ on rules per project, AND you guys need to improve the logic conditions around rule creation in general.

It’s crazy that you can’t construct “when X, if X and/or Y, execute Z” statements—that’s 101 stuff.

I was AMAZED that this wasn’t a part of version 1.0; I did chat w/ folks at Asana on the enterprise team and they are working on it but it’s as if no one understood what a “Variable” was when they made rules, or a select case statement or…well programming.

Obviously they DO, because their application exists and mostly works very well. But these are VERY simple needs, and “20 rules” is a number so low I’m convinced it was a dev limit accidentally left in.

My favorite part about Asana is the automation potential to build and streamline processes…and my least favorite part about Asana is the 20 rule limit.

:pray: :pray: Please, Asana gods, consider increasing it. Even a small increase to 30-50 rules would be immensely helpful!! Most of our projects include 10 or fewer people and I still find that the 20 rule limit puts a cap on our potential to create hyper-personalized, hyper-efficient rules.

Same as here, It’s become crucial for have automated workflow.
Asana please help :pray:

Yes please increase the limit! It’s so easy to hit the limit of 10. My team finds it quite limiting across our projects.

Just hit the 20 rule limit, How frustrating! This is needed to optimize workflow and get information into the right areas to keep the team productive. How is this taking so long to increase the limit? even just doubling it would go a long way for a short term solution.

Hi Sam, just to be clear for people reading this, the max number of rules is currently 20 per project, not 10.

I can’t believe this has been outstanding for over a year.

I totally agree :expressionless:
