Project Timeline view to load top down (not bottom up)

It would be really really great if Asana loaded tasks in timeline from the top down instead of the bottom to the top.

Hi @Rebecca_Wertheimer, welcome to the Asana Community forum :wave:t2:

Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback! To be sure I understand your request fully, could you please provide some more context on what you mean when you say you want Timeline to loads from the top down?

Looking forward to hearing back from you :slight_smile:

Hi @Rebecca_McGrath,

Thank you for reaching out! When I open Asana in timeline view (which is my teams preferred/default view) it loads the projects listed at the bottom and then slowly loads the projects at the top. We would love it if the projects at the top listed first (as they are the most important) and then the bottom ones appeared. Please let me know if you want a video recording or more information.


Hi, I have the same question about the way that timeline view loads. It seems to load tasks from the bottom up, and then has some tasks very low down so it is very easy to miss them. There are huge gaps in the timeline view and I don’t see the reason for this. Is there a fix for this?

Hi @Sonia_Black , welcome to the forum :wave:

Have you tried the new (and better, IMO) Gantt view?

Thank you for the quick response. We use our board to map events on a single day, so the Gantt view lists our tasks as taking 0 days in duration when they are all one day. Is there a way to change how the timeline view appears?

Hi @Sonia_Black , I’m not sure I’m following. How would you like the timeline to appear instead?
Tasks that have a due date are show with a blank duration. You could override this by setting it to 1 if you don’t like it shown blank. Or you can set it to 0 to mark it as a milestone!
