Hey Asana Community,
I’m Ben from the product marketing team, and I’m excited to share news on the latest updates from our resource management team. Starting today, customers with an Enterprise plan can create workload views from the Reporting tab and manage people’s capacity across all of Asana!
Workload is a powerful resource management tool that allows you to track team bandwidth and capacity in real time, ensuring no one is at risk of burnout and that everyone is focused on the right priorities. In the past, workload was only available in portfolios, which limited what work you could pull into a workload view and was a suitable resourcing solution for our smaller teams.
With the new universal workload experience, available on the Enterprise tier, large organizations can now pull in people’s work from across all projects and easily see the global capacity of anyone on the team. This new experience ensures that as you’re rebalancing work and tracking bandwidth, you’re getting an accurate picture of people’s capacity across all projects, not just the specific tracks you might be managing.
To get started, navigate to the Reporting tab on the left side navigation bar and click “Create” and select the Workload option. Once created, you can add people to the view and their workload waves will automatically populate.
We recommend watching this 3 mins walkthrough video to see universal workload in action:
Just like with dashboards, you will only be able to see work that is visible to you. Private tasks and tasks in private projects will not appear unless you already have access to them.
But wait, there’s more!
Over the next few months, the resource management team is shipping additional improvements to this new workload experience, including robust filtering, sharing options, percent allocation views, and most importantly, subtask support! We know many of you have been asking for these features, and we’ll keep you updated as these ship out.
As always, if you have any questions, please add them to the thread and we’ll do our best to address them. We hope you’re just as excited as we are!
Please note Universal Workload is available to 10% of users as of today. It will become available to all Enterprise users over the next few days. Keep an eye on the comments for updates on the rollout.
