Retrieve views

Hey everyone,

As far as I understand it is currently not possible to retrieve views through the Asana API (Asana).

Are there any plans to make this available in the near future?

Hi @Will_from_Pro_Backup,

First, I don’t have any inside info on this question. Second, Asana doesn’t comment on anything they’re working on until it gets released, so any “is this feature coming?” questions are not going to have an official answer.

Having said all of the above :slight_smile: I really highly doubt you’ll see this in the near future. The Asana API is strictly data-model focused, not UI focused; adding UI-based endpoints like view info would be a major departure and my gut tells me that’s not something they’re looking to do.

But I could be wrong, one never knows…

@Will_from_Pro_Backup what do you wish to get access to exactly? :thinking: the default view of a project is available.

@Bastien_Siebman we’ve received user requests to back up all views & dashboards. That’s why we wanted to raise this question on the community forum :wink:

@Phil_Seeman noted! :slight_smile: Appreciate you sharing some extra context on Asana’s view.

@Bastien_Siebman / @Will_from_Pro_Backup : This is exactly what we are asking and waiting since June 2019 on this topic https://forum.asana.com/t/save-default-view-just-for-just-me-option-for-projects/53534

@Phil_Seeman : Thank you for your technical reply which is not good as we would like to be… i now understand why this functionnality hasn t got answer from Asana since that time… huge redevelopment on backoffice code… However i can’t imagine Asana collaboration tool without UI view saver, it makes no sense :frowning:

Cross finger so until Asana comes with an answer : positiv or negativ but we need visibility

I am afraid you won’t get such an answer. It will be “this is not yet available but we’ll keep in on our radar” since they don’t share the roadmap and never say “we will never do this” because they reconsider everything often.
