Is there a list of all standard fields?

Ok this looks like a start! I confess I have no idea what I’m reading on that page - I’m assuming there is some way for me to see the “code” behind Asana? Do you have any links or resources to help me figure out how to figure out how to find it?

Thanks again for taking the time to help.

I think in order to help more specifically, we need some additional info about what you’re after. Can you tell us why you want this info - what are you wanting to accomplish? Thanks!

Great question. We are looking to understand what fields already exist so that we:

a) don’t recreate fields that already exist
b) get some good ideas from seeing the fields Asana has already created in the system - seeing the fields and the pre-populated values will help spur creativity
c) create some training material for us to help orient and onboard our users into how to use the tool and what our corporate standards and processes are

If this investigation leaves behind a list that could help future users like me when they do a Google search, then that’s a bonus too!

Those are all very notable goals IMO!

Unfortunately I don’t think the API-based list I linked to above will help you much in those goals.

What do you think, @Marie and @Emily_Roman - do you know of any list like @James_Falco is asking about, or could one be added to the docs?

Hi all and thanks for looping me in @Phil_Seeman!

I don’t believe our pre-configured custom fields are listed in the Guide, but let me look into this and see if I can find a list!


Hi @James_Falco and @Phil_Seeman, and thanks for your patience!

Please find below the list of pre-configured Asana custom fields. I’ve also put a request through for this info to be added to our Guide so it can easily be found in the future!

:rotating_light: One important note: these fields will be added to your Organisation only when you create a project using an Asana template that contains that field.

Yay! Thanks, @Marie!


Thank you so much @Marie! This is exactly what we needed!


You’re both very welcome :wink:

Thank you @Marie for the list! It is very interesting and I’d like to start using some of the fields, but not all can be found in my field library.

For instance there is “Expected Cost” field and I cannot find template that is using it. Can let us know where one can be found? Ideally every field in the table you provided would have the list of templates that use it.

Hi @Myroslav_Opyr! If you access your Organization’s library and copy the field name Expected Cost, you should see this result:

You can also find this field in the Starting a business template.

I hope this helps!

Good information thanks for sharing

Good information thanks for sharing

I do not have the field in my library yet:

This is why I’d asked about template it is in. Using the template should copy field to my Organization’ Field Library.

But the template you mentioned does not contain a field in question. It has Proposed Budget, as closest equivalent:

Thanks for confirming this information and sorry for the late follow-up here @Myroslav_Opyr! I’ve gone ahead and escalated this issue to our development team to investigate further. I’ll get back to you as soon as I have more information.

Hi @Myroslav_Opyr, I received an update from our team and it seems the Starting a business Checklist template is not updated and for this reason the Expected Cost field is not available. Our team is working to update the templates and fields but in the meantime, you can create this custom field and add it to your Organization’s library so everyone in your Organization can use it.

Hi Emily. I’m new to Asana. I’m trying to get a jump start by using the Asana templates as guides. I run a marketing firm and started working in the Asana editorial calendar template. I’ve run into a snag.
The field for “content channel” contains the following fields only: website, blog, email, print, press release. It does not have a field for “social media.”
My questions are:

  1. Is there any way I can get around this non-editable field to add social media in as one of the fields?
  2. Can asana update this template as social media the major content channel for most businesses and clearly a huge oversight. :slight_smile:
    Looking forward to your reply.
    Stay healthy,

Hi @themarketingspirit, welcome to the Asana community Forum!

You can certainly create new custom fields and remove the Asana created field in your project. Please find the steps in this article.

In regards to your second question, we also offer a Social Media Calendar template, you can use this template here: Free Social Media Calendar Template • Asana

I hope this helps!
