Hello Asana Community,
We are rolling out new processes to support with long workload capacity planning.
Essentially we have a project mapped out, and we are assigning the tasks for the entire multi-month project.
However, some of those future tasks are “not” yet actionable.
So, even if we assign a developer to start coding something, they cannot do that until mockups are approved, as an example.
We want to assign that task in advance to properly balance and anticipate any workload bottlenecks.
The problem we are running into is that all these “planned” tasks (which cannot be actioned yet) are cluttering up everyone’s “My Tasks” page. Even though they are all planned with future dates, it’s adding a ton of new entries and it makes it hard to easily see what is merely planned versus a task that is actionable.
We had tried to use a custom field to flag this, however, the My Tasks page does not appear to support adding a custom field to the screen. Of course, you can go into every task, but with a ton of tasks, that is not efficient at all.
Does anyone have any tips or tricks to how we can assign future tasks but make them easily viewable on the My Tasks page so people at a quick glance can see what is ready for action and what is only planned?
We could put “[planned]” in every task name, but that doesn’t seem overly elegant.
Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks!
