We have a situation where we’re going to have 4 teams, each team with DOZENS of Projects.
Our team leaders definitely need a way of looking at all of those projects (on one screen, with or without needing to scroll) basically like a list view, so we can see the status of all those projects.
Note, I’m not talking about the “status” that is built into Asana (“on track, off track, at risk, complete”), because those are woefully too generic and insufficient.
The progress that our Projects will have is approximately 30-40 steps, in a linear fashion.
Ideally, our project would have a single-select Custom Field at the very top of the screen for all views seen by everyone. Rules would be set up such that as specific tasks are checked off, the value of that custom field changes to indicate what step of the process the project is on.
And, also, a list view (and maybe a board view?) of looking at all the Projects within a Team to see what that custom field is set to.
Unfortunately I cannot find anything remotely close to this. The only workaround I’ve found is one that nobody in our company likes------ I have placed a task in every project called “ProjectName STATUS” and multi-homed that task into a “Progress Check” Project. Within that STATUS task, I have a custom field with all those steps, and progress is tracked via that custom field.
That’s very unintuitive, because as our team members are checking off the various pre-built tasks that came from the Project Template, and then have to go into that STATUS task and change the value in that Custom Field.
Can anyone offer an alternative solution? Being a Team Leader and tracking the progress of all our Projects is quite difficult in Asana currently.
