Hey @asherterpstra, thank you for taking the time to share your great feedback with us!
I can certainly understand how these changes would really improve your Asana experience, thank you for going into detail and even attaching a picture to further show what you mean. We really appreciate it!
No worries. Also, if the Asana projects recognised the critical line, it would be great if the person who is assigned the most important tasks were made aware that the task assigned to them is especially pivotal.
Sorry I’m relatively new here, so if this is a repeat of a request, please merge where appropriate!
I contributed to this post:
This is something I could really use as I work around Asana, but since that post isn’t an actual request, and I couldn’t find another, I wanted to create one.
I think it would be very useful if you see the information on a Predecessor Task the same way that you can a Dependent:
A logo indicating this type of task in List View. Since Asana doesn’t have “Priority” natively, this could help rank these tasks when going through a list as you’d know that if they don’t get done, the dependents can’t get started, either.
The info at the top of the Task Details view that shows the info on the Dependent Tasks, just like those Dependent tasks have now vis a vis Predecessor Tasks.
Being able to see which tasks a task is blocking would be really helpful. At the moment, it’s easy for dependent tasks to get lost - especially if they are being completed by the same team member (as they don’t get an email notification).
Beautifully explained Rory!
Yes, I think this would be helpful for viewing the project in the list view.
The current workaround is using the timeline view of the project to be able to see what is blocking what and so on. But I def see an added value to work of a list view and see the dependancies at both ends on the project.
