Yes @anon52614418! Following the feedback we received, we decide to re-implement these filters. I’ll share an official announcement shortly!
Quick update to let you know that multi filter is now also available on the calendar view More info in 📆 Multi-filter on Calendar view
I’m excited to share that our team has rolled out some new updates to address some feedback we received during this launch:
“Completed in the last month” filter is back
We returned this handy filter, allowing you to filter tasks quickly beyond the last 14 days! cc @fleprovost
Sorting task in one click!
The sorting menu now automatically opens when you click on “Sort” while you previously add the click “Sort” followed by “+Add sort.”
We hope you’ll find these updates helpful, and we look forward to hearing your feedback
Whoop Whoop … the simple things that make a huge difference
It’s great news.
I hope filters will also work on:
- textual custom field
- inbox page (by team / project)
Our team productivity has been significantly impacted by the removal of the “just my incomplete tasks” quick filter (and I see it’s affecting other teams as well). Can we please have that filter restored? The alternative right now is several clicks more (+ looking for the right filter fields) every time our team members access their board.
These have been re-implemented @Benita_Lee
To confirm, are you referring to the “just my incomplete tasks” filter that I shared had been removed? I’m not seeing that on our Asana boards and that’s what has slowed down our productivity.
I’m excited to share that we just implemented a new “Start Date” filter for Board and List view. This new filter comes with the following options:
- Start before today
- Start today
- Start tomorrow
- Start this week
- Start next week
- Start next 14 days
We look forward to your feedback!
While I appreciate the functionality of these new filters, they are still really lacking. I really like how airtable gives you options to sort, group, and filter (with multiple views being able to be saved and accessed by specific users) .
The filters are super robust in airtable. I can choose to show or not show things. I can also choose multiple dates.
For example, if I filter for “Due this week” and something is overdue from last week in the project, I can’t see it, because I can only have one due date filter.
I’d also like a filter to include tasks that have a start and end date, but where the due date doesn’t actually fall on whatever filter I’ve set. For example if I have a task that spans the entire month of April and filter to “tasks due this week” and its week 2 in April, that task is now hidden from my project view.
This is good progress. It will be great if this functionality can be extended to Portfolio level so that the Projects in Portfolios can be multi-sorted.
Hi @Marie I’m not seeing the multi-filter option within my account. Has this been rolled out across the board? Is there a video on how to multi-filter I can reference?
Your screenshot appears to be your My Tasks. The feature has been rolled out for projects, not My Tasks (thought one hopes that will come too eventually).
I’ve skimmed this long thread and various related topics, but I’m not clear if you’re planning to enable multi-select in the drop-down values for a project level filter (board, list, timeline, etc)? In the advanced search filter, I can search for tasks that match any number of values in a custom field. But on project level filters, you can only select a single value, so there’s no way to find tasks that match multiple values for the same field. This is very useful functionality, and is mentioned in many of the older threads that got merged together and turned into these new “multi-filter” features.
Basically - we need multi-select on each field, which should be treat as an “IN” sql operator, or a set of OR conditions.
Hi @Marie and team,
Apologies if this has already been covered - but is it possible to OR the filters, instead of AND? Much like you can with conditions in rules?
For example, if I want to see all incomplete tasks + tasks completed in the last week (all other completed tasks hidden), would this be possible?
Thanks - Nick
That’s not possible at the moment @Nick_Bonich, but thanks for the feedback, I’ll pass it on to our team and circle back here when I have an update!
Thank you @Marie - appreciated!
The natural extension of this request would be a cascading view - where completed tasks remain visible for a certain amount of time (I’m always going back to add time in, etc.) and then after, say, a month, are hidden automatically. This would make my life so much easier - and avoid reporting/searching for recent tasks, etc.
The date multi-sort feature is so helpful when viewing projects, and I would love for this to be available when simply searching for something. Sometimes my search has nothing to do with the larger projects that contain a task (and/or I don’t know the project name to begin with!), and I just want to know where the latest tasks (like “business card” tasks) across ANY projects are.
Not having the ability to adjust a search “Sort” by ascending/descending dates seems a bit silly. Typically, if you just click a DATE column in other applications, it knows what you want to do–switch the sort between ascending and descending. Any plans for that pretty basic function to be implemented?
