I had a couple of questions regarding the new Time Keeping tool within Asana. Is there a way to get the Estimated and Actual Hours fields to rollup to the project level for project level reporting?
Also, when I export a project, the Estimated time exports, but the Actual time does not. Why would one of the fields not export?
I also don’t see the sum at the bottom of each section of tasks for the Actual time field. I do for the Estimated time field just not for the Actual time field.
Any help would be much appreciated!
Time tracking is rolling out in several phases and then follow-ups. Like you, I’ve found some challenges as shown here:
A client would like to see in a project (Dashboard, sum, whatever) accumulated time by Assignee. I don’t see how that’s possible now, and don’t see in the video and post about the three releases when it’s expected. See below for a more detailed explanation…

I’ll use this example project to explain the issues:

That corroborates your experience, I think.
One strategy might be to see how the releases unfold before trying to make heavy use of this new feature; that’s what I’m recommending for now.
Thank you for your response. Yes, it is very much the same experience for me as what you detailed. I agree that it may be worth holding off on heavy use until the final release. Thanks for the insight and sanity check to make sure I wasn’t just doing something wrong!
