Organization Members and Roles

Hi Asana, is possible to manage organization members into roles?
Or did you plan to add this feature?
It maybe wonderful to organize team / project visibility.

Giorgio (pm, seo)

Elena (assistant)
Valentina (ppc, seo)


@Riccardo_Mares, I upvoted too (and wouldn’t be surprised if this is part of Asana’s vision already).

In case you weren’t aware, in avatar menu > My Profile Settings > Profile tab, there’s a “Role” text field you can use as you wish now.

As you’ll see in the new Workload doc:

Asana is now using this within the product, in this case to allow you to filter, e.g., workload for all the PMs.

Otherwise, you could “manually” set up a project where each task is an org member and have a custom field for Role and that would enable you to see your org members in this way.

I don’t understand too why Asana don’t follow some suggestions I gave to it about UX, as example: team filterting, search on project, …
