The new My Tasks v2 rule “Due date is approaching → Move task to a certain section” only triggers based on the Due date, not the Start date if one is present.
Please add (for Premium and above–that is, wherever Start date is available) a new rule: “Start/Due date is approaching → Move task to a certain section” and consider the Start date, if present, as the date to consider for this rule to fire, otherwise, the Due date if no Start date is present.
I believe most will want this behavior and find the current behavior of ignoring Start dates unfortunate and causing missed notifications and extra work to accomplish. I think a single rule that respects the earlier Start date, if present, is the simplest approach. If you disagree, then I request that you still provide this rule as mentioned as well as add more rules you feel are needed, because I wouldn’t want to have to write multiple rules which is what would be required if you didn’t provide the requested rule which automatically uses the earlier date.
I hope you’ll consider this with some priority because I believe the current choice of providing no way to trigger My Tasks rules based on Start date is a significant omission and a real time-waster to work around (it’s not good when Asana creates work about work!).
