Project overview and Project brief availability on mobile

Project overview and Project brief are currently not available on mobile. I would love to see this features implemented on mobile as well! If anything, it would be really nice to gain access to a Project Brief from mobile as we’ve already found this to be such a key resource when on the move!

Thanks for creating this request @Jerod_Hillard! We hope to have news about this feature soon, stay tune!


Thanks for your vote, @Emily_Roman! :ballot_box_with_check: Hehe

My boss is a heavy mobile user (often, this is the only way he is accessing Asana…and while balancing a 9-month old in his other arm). Was pretty surprised when he told me he wrote a grant proposal via mobile. To say the least both he (and I) would appreciate this!

When i put links and image into the Overview tab on the desktop, it doesn’t look like these show on mobile? If yes, is there a workaround to getting project level pictures, PDFs, links, etc. Into the project on the iPhone App?

Thanks for sharing your feedback with us, @sales! As it stands, the project overview and project brief are not available on mobile. As a workaround, you can create a task at the top of your project as reference and attach files so other users can access them via the mobile app.

A better workaround for this is to add a link to the Project Brief in the overview text. This opens in the mobile app fine.

It isn’t possible to edit the brief in the mobile app, but at least you can view it.

Since it is possible to view the project brief, it shouldn’t be a huge ask to add it as a button or menu item in the mobile app.

I forgot to mention that the text from the project overview (but not all the features of the page) is available under About in the view drop down under the project name - it’s the last item if you scroll down.


I did not realise how much this feature is important until I had to take a call on the move and access asana from my iPad (insert the sound of game over).

I could not access the project brief. Instead I found an About option in the project tab and it takes you to a new page called description. Not surer what this is different from the web interface, it would be good to have them unified. Feature upvoted, thanks @Jerod_Hillard


Same here ! Really looking for that feature. I’m mostly working from my phone, and I need to add some screenshots to project ressources. That would make Asana PERFECT.

I guess I am not the only one who wanted this!

Any updates on this feature? We’re just getting started with Asana and it’s a bit shocking that the iOS app is missing key elements of a project. Our team uses iPads often and we need parity between the web and iOS apps. I also can’t find a way to launch the Asana web app on an iPad either.

Maybe an obvious request, but I feel like it would be extremely helpful to have the overview tab for projects on mobile as well. A lot of important information goes there like the creative brief.


Hi @TheAlchemist, thanks for providing this feedback.

As it stands, the project overview tab is not available on mobile. We do have an existing request for this feature in the #mobile:androidios-feedback category so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with the existing one to consolidate feedback.

We hope to have news about this feature soon, stay tuned!


Hi everyone,

My company and i are using brief summary to give essentiel informations and documents to project teams.

When we use Apps Asana on iPhone, we cant find a way to access to this brief and documents. Is it planned on roadmap or already there but we dont know to use it?

Are you also waiting for this feature?
Thanks anyone for your reply

Best regards

Hi @nvlopp, thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback :slight_smile: As there is already an existing request for this feature in the forum, I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with the existing one to consolidate feedback, I hope you don’t mind!

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if we have any updates :slight_smile:

Hey all,

I work with a combination of progress updates, links to files and other work environments. Sometimes a project brief is also added and needs updating by several members. Having the

Overview tab available on mobile would be a huge improvement for us.

Kind regards!
