I have run into two issues with asana that are causing me serious problems
- I can’t create custom colors. If I have more than 16 items that need to be differentiated at a time, I am unable to do that.
- I have a field in my project labeled “Category,” which I use to differentiate the tasks within the project. (eg. A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J) I’d like to be able to view the calendar for a project, but have it display only certain tasks within the project based on that category (ex. I want to view all tasks from categories A, B, and C only) (Much in the same way that the calendar app on a mac will let you toggle which calendars are displayed) After searching online, I found someone who had the same problem as me, and was recommended to create and then save a couple advanced searches for each calendar view that he would need. However, this does not work as I cannot select multiple categories at a time (eg. A, B, C)
Does anybody have any workarounds? I feel like these are very basic limitations that could be easily fixed and I have no idea why asana would limit you so severely in such a basic way. I can’t imagine I’m the first person to have either of these problems.
