Making tasks within a Project only visible to relevant employees?

Hello everyone, I hope this is the right place to ask this question.

I was wondering if it was possible to make Tasks within a Project visible only to the specific members within said Project it’s assigned to instead of all members within the Project, thus making the Tasks within a Project members are not assigned to not visible for them.

The reason I’m asking is that restricting visibility of Tasks within a Project can be a boon for people with sensory disorders; making them feel less overwhelmed by a list of Tasks that they don’t even need to see, and better able to see and focus on Tasks they’re working on themselves. I tried to search for an answer to this all over Asana info sources and the greater web but couldn’t even find anyone asking about it, though perhaps that’s due to what keywords I used.

I hope my question was clear, but if I need to clarify anything at all, please don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you in advance for your time.

Short answer @Joriaan is yes and no.

If a user is a member of the project or team (unless project is private) then they can see all the tasks. If they are not a member of the project, nor on the team, they should only see the tasks assigned to them.

However, the best way to handle this for your case would be:

  • have people use their My Tasks
  • if you need functionality beyond what My Tasks currently allows, set up a new project for this individual with a rule in their My Tasks that any task added (to their My Tasks) also gets added to this new project.

As everything will be multi-homed, any updates in any of the projects will be reflected in all. This gives them a unique environment they can set up as they want without impact to the other teams.

Thank you for your assistance, Getz_Pro! Ironically I also figured out My Tasks was the answer to my question almost right after I posted it, but it’s definitely good to have the confirmation that it’s indeed the right (and only) solution. Your suggestion for setting up an individual project if necessary is also excellent advice, thank you for that.

Marked as solved, and I hope you have a great day.
