Hi Asana community,
I’m Eileen from the Asana product marketing team. I’m excited to share that we’re launching a new custom field - ID!
We’ve heard that users want a way to easily identify and track tasks in Asana, especially when managing high volumes of tickets and work requests. Task names can be descriptive and helpful, but also long and difficult to remember, especially when there are many with similar names.
Soon you’ll be able to identify tasks easily by adding an ID custom field to your projects. You can create an ID custom field with a custom alphabet prefix, or choose one from the library.
Once added, an ID will be auto generated incrementally for all existing and new tasks (and 1 level of subtasks) in the project. Projects and tasks can have more than 1 ID custom fields, and these IDs can also be used to search and @-mention within Asana.
We plan to roll out this feature in Premium, Business and Legacy Enterprise as well as Starter, Advanced, Enterprise and Enterprise+ tiers starting February.
Learn more about the new ID custom field in our Help Center article.
Please keep an eye out for it and let us know what you think in the comments. Thank you!
