Hello Everyone , I am Danni one of the Forum Leaders and I am so excited to announce on behalf of Asana the new Multi-Filtering feature for My Tasks! If you are like me, your Asana “My Tasks” is a pretty busy place to be.
But with this new release of Multi-Filtering in My Tasks, you and I will now be able to find specific groups of tasks that you are interested in helping us focus and get work done!
We still have the original filter of complete or incomplete but with this fantastic new release Asana have added the functionality of now using fields (including single & multi select, all date fields and people fields) AND the ability to overlay these by using multiple filters at a time! You have the option to use filters in List, Board and Calendar (monthly view only).
This one above for example would filter all incomplete tasks of a high priority that are due before today (overdue). However if I wanted to narrow this down further I could add in an extra filter using a date custom field to find anything that is high priority, overdue but is due to be published (estimated publish date) tomorrow!
You may notice it looks a little different to the current project based filter, as the Assignee and Just My Tasks filter are not options (as your My Tasks are only tasks assigned to you). Additionally, at the moment it is not possible to filter tasks by projects (as yet, but Asana are aware this is something that is wanted) but you can still use the ‘Group By’ whilst the filters are applied. There is also a limit of 10 filters applied at one time.
I would love to hear below your thoughts, feedback, and questions on this new release. Don’t panic if you cannot see it as yet; this is a gradual rollout from Sept 28 to Oct 25 (dates are subject to change, I will keep you posted with updates here).
