Introducing our new Spreadsheet-Inspired List View!

While the interface is clean, the inability to be able to adjust to column size makes it completely dysfunctional. If you have more then one tag they get cut off and become essentially useless. Looks like you guys need more work on this release before automatically transferring everyone over as you did to our team today.


@abass and @lpb the task details pane is a slide-out overlay from the right, I don’t have a GIF yet, but this is what it looks like when it’s open:

I’ll ask the Team in charge of the Guide if they add a GIF to this Guide article


Hi @Marie what’s that little clock icon?

Hi @Matthew_Wolf,

You’re correct, as it stands it is not possible to adjust columns width. This is our first draft and definitely something we will iterate on in the future. Would you mind creating a new #productfeedback thread to allow other community members to vote for this feature request? On my end, I will escalate your feedback to the Team in charge of this launch, and I’ll keep you posted as soon as I have an update.

Regarding the second issue (tags being cut-off), but if you want to create a new thread in #tipsandtricks and share a screenshot to illustrate the issue, I’d be more than happy to look into this for you.

Looking forward to your reply!


It’s the Harvest integration @Ben_Brenner, it allows you to track time spent on task and has reporting options. You can learn more about it here: Syncing Asana with Harvest | Product guide • Asana :slight_smile:


@Matthew_Wolf check out (and vote) for the following:

@Marie can these two be merged?


I was just looking it to it @Ben_Brenner, all done now! I’ll close the loop on other #productfeedback requesting some of the feature requests we rolled out as part of this launch.

Thanks for keeping an eye out and helping me keep this forum organized :wink:


Thanks for your feedback, I submitted a vote. Is it possible for those of us who aren’t so pleased with the recent updated and were automatically switched over to be reverted to the previous version of the interface if we wish. While this “first draft” is interesting and I can see the potential, its actually been really detrimental to our workflow and would prefer not to have it as our interface until the kinks are worked out….everything was working great before you introduced this update.

Thanks, Matt


I feel the same way. Please give us an option to return to the old view.


@abass and @lpb,

Here is the requested GIF :slight_smile: :


@Matthew_Wolf and @tlankford,

I can confirm that our team is actively working on a solution to allow you to resize columns in the new list view, I will make sure to post an update as soon as I have more info. In the meantime, I’m afraid we don’t have an option to revert back to the previous version, but if you want to share more about how this update has affected your Workflow, and what modification you’d like to see, please let us know in a new #productfeedback so we can escalate this to our Team who is closely looking at feedback to plan on improvements.

And of course if you have any follow-up questions, or if tehre is anything else I can help you with, please let me know!


I love this update… there are a few things that will make it even more awesome (I’ll post in feedback as well).

  1. I have asked for a shortcut to task duplicate (not copy) for a while now, and it’s needed even more now, that the function is short of buried on the task details page.

  2. More than ever, we need to have personalized custom views. The power of the filter, sort, etc. is lost without having a custom view for each person. I would be able to set my view and be way more efficient, but alas I can’t set my view to just my team as it would be that way for everyone.

  3. It would be awesome (if there’s a way) to have the comment counter show if the comment is new. Something like 0/3 or if there’s a new message 1/4. I’m not sure how you would be able to tell that we have seen the message, but I guess if I responded, or navigated to the details pane would be two ways. I’m not sure though.

  4. Move the “send feedback” button, it’s cluttering the interface. You don’t have to remove it, just move it over an inch or two to the left. So it doesn’t look like one of our soft/filter controls.

  5. Is there a shortcut to close the details pane?

  6. Sometimes you have to be precise clicking on the chevron to open the details panel. And sometimes the chevron doesn’t show up unless I click a few times.

But overall, love the change. The fact that I can load more columns now is awesome.


I may have missed this, but what is the maximum number of columns we can have on the screen at any one time? Thanks


Wow! Really amazing! :wink:

Same here - while the slide in of the details pane is all nice and dandy, it is missing an option to make it disappear just as fast again. As it is you have to click on the little arrow icon in the top right corner of the task details. Especially when you just want to check a project and its tasks, that way of handling it is very laborious.

Are there any plans to have this also come to the “My Tasks” section? It feels so outdated going back to it now :sweat_smile:


Hi @Chris_B! You can now have up to 20 columns on your List project :slight_smile:


Hi @Francesco_Alessi and @Alex_Hassel :wave:t3:

You can use “Tab + :leftwards_arrow_with_hook:” to open tasks details and the “Esc” key to close it!


Not just yet @abass, but I’mm make sure to keep you posted here as soon as I have more info!


Looks great. But still not getting the update. Is there a way to force this latest version?
