New! Track time on your Tasks in Asana ⏱

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…

(See also this post above, with screenshot, for a related question: New! Track time on your Tasks in Asana ⏱ - #60 by Matheus_Vaz)

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

Related to @anon27973992’s post, in Dashboard I thought I could create a chart to show accumulated actual time by assignee. But if I choose x-axis of Assignee, then y-axis Actual time, it switches x-axis to Creator; it won’t allow x-axis of Assignee for Actual time (but does allow it for Estimated Time). In what release will it permit Assignee?

I noted that the SUM rows don’t appear for Actual time. That would have worked for me but is not supported. I tried Estimated time and I see that is supported. In which release will SUM of Actual time be supported?

The only current solution I can think of to offer my client is to manually create sections corresponding to each Assignee, then use a dashboard chart like this:

Or is there a better solution?

On another note, Creator is useless is many circumstances because it appears that all form submissions have an empty/blank creator; see the screenshot task “Time Tracking Example submission” Creator column. Couldn’t that be “Asana” or something so as to not exclude all such tasks from Dashboard reporting? Or is there something I’m missing here?

Thanks,

Larry
