Organising my day - Daily (hourly) schedule planning on calendar

Hi, I was wondering if you are planning to incorporate a Daily schedule planner that includes the hours of each day (with a weekly view) so I can structure my work schedule each day/week. For the moment I use a Board with “Today”, “Tomorrow”, “This Week”, etc and structure the tasks in order of what I need to do first, but what I would find really useful in organising my day is a planner whereby I could set specific time intervals for doing each of these. Some tasks require 10 minutes, others 2 hours, others take amny “back anf forths” before finally being completed. Being able to organise a schedule whereby I can set that I will be focusing on a specific task for a specific time duration would help me to really structure my working day. The flexibility of dragging and dropping tasks to reorganise the schedule if anything new comes up would be great. Sorry if someone else has already suggested this, but I couldn’t find anything similar in the search.

Just having daily schedule is not really enough for me, I need an hourly planner for the day like PlanAway

Is ti possible to set specific time during a day for task, not just a due time.

That would be very useful to set up task hourly

Yes, this would be very useful. I want to be able to use the Asana calendar to plan out my days with more precision. Google Calendar and Pipedrive do this extremely well.

Until/if that feature becomes available, consider the following which I’ve suggested to clients in the past, and which can be tweaked variously as desired. It is intended for today only:

It seems crazy to me that there isn’t a start time… it’s such a basic idea. It literally boggles my mind how something so basic is missed? Unless this is just hidden in the enterprise version or something. How can a major todo list / project management app manage to miss the idea that users would want to schedule the items on their todo list… :exploding_head: I just don’t understand how this has been missed?! What’s the solution here Asana?

Just echoing others here to say I just started using Asana, I love it and I’m ready to switch everything over to it, except… I can’t because I function entirely off my google calendar hour by hour. I really like everything else about Asana, but how can you have a calendar feature that doesn’t have an hourly option?

Hi! Just adding in that I would love an hour by hour feature, as well.

It would be really helpful to be able to schedule tasks hourly/or view in an hourly format to better time block and set up my day.

Hi @Brodie_Ripp, thanks for sharing your feedback with us! We have a thread on this topic so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with the main thread to consolidate feedback.

I spent some time with potential Asana customers yesterday. It’s an event planning and catering company that also rents out an event location (for weddings and corporate events). Beside many other things :slight_smile: they had the idea to use Asana to coordinate the location occupancy plan / schedule (at what time (hours) during the day is the location occupied by which party).

So the feature of tasks with a time range within a date (instead of only a date range) would be amazing and the scenario described above also a good example for this use case.

@Daniel_Frischknecht,

I shared a tip elsewhere that describes the easiest Asana solution to almost exactly your potential client’s event location scheduling need:

Note that this is a vastly different solution to a quite different problem than the one I provided earlier in this thread:

(That’s what makes Asana fun: recognizing workflows that may seem the same but are actually very different, and then being able to effectively support them by employing different features provided by a single app.)

Hey Larry

Thanks a lot! This could work.

Cheers

+1 crying to get this feature, so hard to organize within a day as it is now, we are looking for other CRMs with this feature to switch to.

I really wish this feature was available, I run a video production company and it would mean we could schedule our shoots using Asana - and importantly reschedule on the fly. I don’t understand why this isn’t already a in place? Please bring this feature, it would also be great for events companies also. I also having to look at moving to another piece of software. Is this the correct place to ask for this feature or should we be emailing in?
Thanks,
Luke
