I’m wondering if there is a way for a completed date to automatically log when a user checks the completed bubble? Is this a rule I need to setup? I tried searching forums and found that there are date fields, but they have to be manually entered. Would be great if there is a field that just shows the date marked complete (and can display dates for tasks that are already completed) Thanks!
You can toggle on the Completed on field (filled in automatically by Asana) in the top row of projects’ Hide menu:
The date completed also automatically appears near the bottom of the Task Detail pane among the audit trail stories for a task.
The information is also visible in the task history pane just above the comment. When someone change the status you will see who it was and when. In that section you can also see all the changes that were made on the task.
Thanks for asking this question @Ginelle_Moriarty - I have been search for the answer as well.
When I look at my field options in Hide/Customize, the Completed on field is not there (neither are the Created by, Created on, etc).
If the fields did exist on my projects, would they be reportable using the filters?
@anon36315334, the “Hide” menu I referred to is not part of Customize, so you should be looking at the Hide menu not Customize.
Did you try it? Yes, they’re in filters:
Thanks for the response, Larry. When I go into Hide these options are not listed. I thought that perhaps going into Manage customer fields would provide additional options as it has in the past.
Because they are not present, I cannot test using the reporting filters. I assumed ownership of this board when someone left the company - perhaps he deleted these options when he created customer fields.
Or include some screenshots here to make sure we’re talking about the same thing, and perhaps that will provide a clue.
Thanks for all the help! The options are there; the missing piece for me was that I needed to be in the List View to see them. I can’t see them in Board View, which is where I was working from during this thread.
