Saving Layout as Default doesn't save if using a custom field in board view

I’m trying to save a default layout for a bugs board.

I have configured the project in board view, and using the default Asana priority field as the sort. Once I save as default layout and come back to the project it resets to the default sort.

Incidentally, If I change to list view and then sort by priority and save as default layout, the sort is saved as expected when I come back to the project.

Is this default behaviour because of the board option?


I saw the exact same feedback yesterday, looks like a bug to me @Rebecca_McGrath @Emily_Roman @Marie

Hi @Mitchell_Renton, welcome to the Asana Community Forum :wave:

I haven’t been able to reproduce this on my end. When sorting by a custom field in Board view and that layout is saved as default, the view does remain when I leave the project and return.

Could you please try these troubleshooting steps and let me if any of these affect the issue, particularly clearing your cache?

Looking forward to hearing back from you!

Hi @Rebecca_McGrath ,

Thanks for the instructions. I have cleared the cache and followed the other troubleshooting steps but this didn’t solve the problem.

I also noticed that I have other projects that are boards and sorted by a single-select custom fields, so strange it won’t save it for this particular board.


This is strange, @Mitchell_Renton! Could you reach out to our Support team with the URLs to the projects in question so that they can look into this further for you? They have access to additional tools that we don’t have here on the Community.

You can contact them by following these steps:

I hope this is resolved soon!
