Thanks for Asana, being able to have the same task in several board is very handy in Agile, so you can organize your Backlog in a board and send some tasks to another Sprint board (todo / Wip / done).
Some features are missing however:
There are very few filters in the board view, much less than in the list view.
It lacks the basics: sorts by user, sorts by custom field, and some others like due date, create by…
In the future, it would also be nice to be able to mix several filters and save them.
Some bugs too I spot :
In list view when renaming a section it becomes a task
In the Gantt Timeline view, if you have more than one custom field you can’t define which field defined the color, it’s the one that will be filled in first that defines the color.
As a user who is currently using a Board view to handle a product backlog across a remote team, I want to vote for this request 10 times over.
It would be so nice if we could filter cards on the board view by:
For example, here’s a workflow. We’re creating a card for an Epic and then associating all the stories with that epic by using a tag. I would really love to only see that epic on the board by filtering by that tag.
Not being able to control the views makes using the board a lot less useful.
An example of this type of behavior working really well is Zenhub in Github. They can filter a board by an epic and only see issues associated with that epic. That is a very desired behavior, and I wish Asana supported that.
At the moment there are only two views for the board: incomplete/complete tasks. It is possible to do and advanced search to pull out all the tickets matching criteria. However when this is done it all goes to a list view and it’s not really possible to save the search criteria. Once the tasks are in the list view we loose the ability to understand which stage of the process they are in. For cross functional agile teams the boards can get quite busy and being able to save custom views and name them would be ideal. I saw many other requests asking to filter by tags, custom fields, people etc. - I believe this solution would fix them all.
Custom fields in boards are great, thank you!
We have added “Work Kind”: “Art”, “Development”, “Game Design”… fields
It would be great to be able to filter board by this field the same way we can filter it by complete/incomplete.
Search is a workaround to find what you want but not to work with it in a board.
I agree; it would be very helpful to be able to filter a large board by a custom field. I’d love to be able to filter board items based on our Priority Level or Level of Effort. Hopefully this is a feature that will be added in the near future!
Absolutely agree. There are other requests for quick view filters for assigned-to-me and by has-tag, but filter by a two-step ‘by project-custom-drop-down-field = custom-drop-down-field-value’ (like the two-step Completed Tasks > → Marked complete within ____ feature)
So for example, View: → Location > → UK where Location is a custom drop-down field added to the project, and UK is one of the predefined options for Location, would be extremely useful.
Going beyond drop-down fields would be very complex, but drop-downs are already handled as a special case by appearing on the task-cards.
Hi there! I, along with many others in my organization would love the ability to filter content INSIDE a particular project. For example, lets say I have a project board with 50 different tasks/cards. Let’s say that 10 of those cards contain the tag: ‘pending’. I want to be able to filter the content on the CURRENT list or board to view only those tasks that are tagged as ‘pending’. I can’t currently do this. I can go to the search bar and filter for ‘pending’, BUT that method will pull anything, from any project that is tagged as such.
Further to this, you may want to apply a filter inside a specific project for scenarios such as:
Only tasks with due dates greater than today
Only tasks overdue
Only tasks containing the word ‘chocolate’
Only tasks with a status of ‘waiting on third party’
Only tasks assigned to ‘Michael Jordan’
The Advanced Search Feature is Asana is awesome, and YES I can search for stuff inside one or more projects BUT I need a feature that allows me to STAY on the current board or list and just filter down to specific content and tasks in that particular list.
