Label Files/Attachments

Hi,
We work a large number of files within Asana and it would be great to be able to “label” them. It is critical that the correct file for us is chosen to progress with. A task can hold many iterations of a file and so being able to label them would allow for zero confusion on which file is the correct one to grab (whether in a task or the files view). In basecamp, you can create your own custom labels based on your team’s needs/functions and we would love to see this functionality in Asana as well.

Hi :wave:
Surprisingly enough, it looks like this was not asked before in the community! Upvoting this. Alternatively, you could have a task to “hold” versions of the same file. That would give you the ability to reference the task, tag it etc.

Welcome to the Forum @Emily_Benson and thanks for sharing this feedback with us. As @Bastien_Siebman mentioned, I don’t think this feedback was ever submitted, but I can totally see how useful this would be in the long run or if you’re managing a lot of attachments for your projects.

I’ll make sure to keep you posted as soon as I have some update on my end, in the meantime, if there is anything else we can help you with, let us know!

Thank you so much Bastien and Marie, really appreciate it! Yeah, anything that would allow us to label/tag the actual files rather than the tasks would be great.
