Organizing Project List in Left Menu Pane

I have 5 project Managers in my group. We have individual projects and are managing workflow through ASANA. However because of the number of projects we have at any given time–currently 50–it is difficult to find specific projects in the long disorganized list on the left pane… Is there any way to organize projects numerically? This would have to hold true for archived projects as well.

Completely agree! Having folders for projects would be great too. Now I always have to tap 3 times before getting to the right project. From favorite to all and then you have to unfold all. Very annoying and cumbersome.


Hi @Marie_Couris you can star projects so that you have a section on the left that appears with your favourited/starred projects. Also you have the newer projects section on the left that are the recently visited ones too.

Yes, in the left sidebar Projects section you’d want to choose Alphabetical:


If you name your projects like this:

  • 01 Project X
  • 02 Project Y
  • 03 Project X

they’ll sort numerically.
