More Options for Printing Tasks

As much as I enjoy using Asana, something that has always bothered me is how poorly the print function works. I don’t understand where there isn’t at least a few options alter when selecting to print a task or calendar view.

Here is just a few things I would like to see:

  • Be able to change the text size
  • Option to print attachments
  • Option to remove assignee from beginning of task name
  • Add project name to task when in calendar view

I could go on but these are the main things I would hope to see in future updates. I know Asana is designed to be entirely web based but people in my organization still like to have hard copies of things. I’m not sure why there are virtually zero options to mess with when choosing to print tasks. Instead of adding features like “Milestones” that barely serve any purpose, I’d suggest taking a look at improving the print feature.

One big thing I forgot to mention is why do completed tasks automatically get formatted with a strike through. It makes it 100x more annoying to read and it would be nice to just have a simple check mark next to a completed task instead.

@Evan_Urbani, Asana’s own Print doesn’t offer any customizability.

An option is to use Asana2Go (Disclosure: I’m the creator of it.) The app and basic info are there; see https://medium.com/asana-consulting-trilogi-solutions for more articles and videos on Asana2Go.

It offers many built-in print formats and unlimited customizability, which would allow you to handle some, but not all, your requests. This requires some HTML/CSS knowledge. I offer custom reports if you need assistance; contact me by Private Message here or via the links above.

Totally agree! I have had myself some suggestions on this topic (see below), but nothing was taken into consideration yet!

This is what I came to see if anyone had a solution to yet. It drives me nuts. Right now I’m doing the trial and I could really sell this thing to the company’s owners if we could print hard copies of tasks once they are completed to be filed with the rest of that order’s invoice. I love asana because I can have my sales team keep real time track of progress in the warehouse but once the order is finished, I need to be able to print a hard copy that’s easily readable and reference-able. I’d also like to be able to change the size of font, get rid of that strike through, and print the comments added all on a single sheet if it all fits.

I’ve needed task management system for my warehouse forever and the office team is loving it. But this is just one of the few headaches that are really big about this system. Please update asap!
