I see that in portfolios we can add a date range for projects, but when I go into the actual project list view, I cannot see the date posted, which forces me to put dates in the title of re-occuring projects (i.e. sprints). It would be awesome if we just had the project date displayable in the project list/board pages. Perhaps people would use the project dates more!
Hi @Joey_Sumi, thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us!
As it stands, date ranges for projects appear in the Progress tab. I agree with you, for more visibility, it would be great to see the date range of the projects in List or Board view. Do you have any specific place in those views that you can think these dates can be placed?
I think it’s worth pointing out that in any view you always have the “i” (info) icon right next to the project name to show the project details. A click pops the name, team, description, date, and owner. A second click hides it again. For me, that’s a good solution. Described here: https://asana.com/guide/help/fundamentals/navigating-asana#sts=Header
You are absolutely right! I completely missed that option, thanks @lpb!
@Joey_Sumi this is the pop-up window with more details about the project and you can quickly access it from your List and Board view:
I think that if the dates were placed at the top of the page near the title, it would add for clarity.
That’s not a very good solution. The date view is only temporary and it pull open a pop-up module so you can’t interact with the project and have that module open at the same time.
Again, the best solution is to put the date in the Project Title, which then negates why the profile view has the date view at all. Why put the date twice?
I understand. I just wanted to make sure you knew about that, but I see it’s not helpful. I wish Asana offered more settings so we could both be happy!:
It’s not a settings issue, it’s basic common sense. Why would we have the ability to assign a date to a project and not show that date unless we click on a tiny icon (more discreet that this emoji)?
Above, I wrote that for me, it’s a good solution the way it is now. For most of my projects, I don’t want to see what you want to see, so the only way I know to make us both happy is to make it a setting.
Just wondering, why wouldn’t you want to see a project date range in the list view, if you’re using a date for the project?
As with other project-level fields like Project Description and Owner, for some projects they’re helpful to have statically in the project header but for others not, depending on the nature of the project. Due date, even if set, doesn’t mean I want to take up space and attention for it permanently, necessarily. Evidentally the Asana designers agree, so it’s really not just my odd preferences.
But I do wish it would be flexible. For onboarding/training projects in Asana, I’d love to be able to “Save layout as default” such that the Project Description always appears statically.
Evidently, because it’s not even a setting, the Asana developers didn’t even think about someone wanting to see the project date in the Listview or any of the Projects’ views.
I doubt Asana designers leave any stone unturned. These fields actually were previously present on the page; they were removed some time ago.
