Today, we’re excited to announce our newest custom field, Formula!
When tracking information in Asana, custom fields give you the flexibility to track all different types of data in a standard way. With the Formula custom field, you can perform calculations directly in Asana, making it easier to manage your data and significantly enhancing your productivity.
This new custom field leverages the add, subtract, multiply, and divide operators alongside data from numeric custom fields, tasks due date, creation date, completion date, and start date – so you can perform a wide range of calculations within Asana and gather powerful insights about your work such as creating budgets, analyzing sales figures, calculating capacity, and many more scenarios.
Like any other custom field, you can add Formula fields from the “Customize” menu on the right side of any project.
In the example below, an Event manager calculated the difference between their budget and actual spending to determine team resources. You can see they created the “Difference” formula custom field using two number custom fields: “Budget” minus (-) “Spend.”
Please note this first version of Formulas supports workload and reporting. We plan to launch additional functionalities as well as portfolio and bundle support soon!
Let us know in the comments below if you have any questions. We can’t wait to hear what use cases you will solve with this new feature!
Please note this update is available to all Business and Enterprise customers.
