Is there a way for multiple projects to use the same custom field? For example, a custom field where we can put a link to a document. This way, multiple projects can share the document. Here’s a screenshot of a sample task in multiple projects in which we want to use the same custom field but failed: Snip - SAO [Company Meeting] AGENDA - GOAL [YT-ADS] [FYT] [WEB-EG] v4 - Asana - Google Chrome
I submitted a ticket about this but didn’t receive any response.
Hope to hear from you guys soon. Thanks in advance.
yes, multiple Projects can share a custom field. Usually when you add a task to a project, the custom fields of that project should show up in your task.
Hi @anon39520473 as ug_josh says it will show up in the task if it is multihomed in both projects. If you want to see it as a custom field column. Make sure you have added that field to the library and then import that specific one into the new project. Then it will share that field.
To elaborate a bit on what’s been said here: it’s important to understand that there are two types of custom fields in Asana, project-specific fields and global custom fields. The latter live in your organizational custom fields library. So if you want a custom field to be shared across multiple projects, the best thing to do is add it to your organizational library.
Thank you so much, guys @_josh , @Danielle-GenD , @Phil_Seeman !!! Appreciate the swift response.
