Would it be possible to add variables to the Asana Platform that could be used in context? For example: Create a variable <project_title> that could be used in the following way where:
Task: Consult <project_title>
Task: Bid <project_title>
Task: Purchase <project_title>
would be interpreted like this:
Project_Title: Create Dashboard for Operations
Task: Consult Create Dashboard for Operations
Task: Bid Create Dashboard for Operations
Task: Purchase Create Dashboard for Operations
This would really expand the functionality of project templates, particularly for those of us who use boards and our workflow. Instead of having a list of projects assigned to me that are all “Consult” I would be able to easily reference “Consult Operations” or “Consult AV Project” etc.
Another useful variable would be custom columns a user creates or due dates (especially if you can allow mathematical operations like “project_due_date - 7 days”.
