The shortcuts to move My Tasks to Today, Upcoming or Later sections (Tab+Y, Tab+U, Tab+L respectively) no longer work
Steps to reproduce:

Hi @Ali_AlBarrak

This is not a bug as such but related to the New My Task view.

There has been a partial fix put in place that Asana is still working through…

Refer these couple of Posts…

and the partial fix.

Hope this helps…



So you are saying that, a common operation that used to require 1 keypress now requires a sequence of 5 key presses and I should take that as an expected behavior because new view have custom rules?

I like custom rules but as nice and as it is, custom rules as a feature cannot replace manually sorting a bunch of tasks recently assign to me. Sometimes conditions are to complex to be automated

Hi @Ali_AlBarrak Yes unfortunately. But they are working towards improving this experience.

Yes agree it is disappointing that we have lost that easy functionality of the Keyboard shortcuts.
