Hey Asana Community!
I’m Ben from the product marketing team at Asana working with our reporting team. We know that when you don’t have visibility into your team’s work, projects shift off track, deadlines are missed, and team productivity suffers. That’s why we launched project Dashboards in September, giving users the ability to visualize and understand the state of their team’s work in real-time. After reading through your feedback and further understanding the types of insights you wanted to uncover, the team is excited to announce our latest reporting feature improvement—a fully customizable Dashboard and custom chart creation!
Now when you navigate to any of your projects’ Dashboard tab, you can add, edit, and remove charts as you please. Use the chart builder to choose your chart type (donut, bar, lollipop, number), group the sets of data as needed, and add filters so you get the right level of information in your chart. As you make these changes, the chart preview on the left will show you what the chart will look like.
On the Dashboard surface itself, change the ordering of the charts and move your most important ones to the top. If you have a chart with multiple sections or bars, click on the expand arrows of the individual chart to see the full picture.
One of the most important aspects of Asana’s Dashboards is that the insights you uncover are actionable. If your charts tell you something is off and you want to dig deeper to take action, just click on that slice of information in the chart and we’ll take you to the underlying task data. No more spending hours trying to diagnose why something looks off and what you need to do about it.
When you get this visibility into your team’s work, you not only feel confident about the state of your team’s work, you also feel empowered knowing how to keep your team’s work on track.

As always, we love hearing feedback from you, so comment below on what you’re excited about and how we can further improve on the way you report out on work. We’ve got more, exciting reporting updates in the future, so keep an eye out for when they go live!
