Search Within Project Description

Does anyone know how to generate searches (or reports for that matter) that reference the Project Description? As far as I can see the search feature only looks at tasks.

Also, is there any way to assign a text label to go with the colour label for each Project?

Hi @Kevin_Swannack. You are correct in that currently the search does not include the project description. There is a prior post where you can upvote for this to be included. Include Project description in Search results

In regards to assigning a text label in addition to the colour label for each project, are you referring to having text in addition to the project name? Feel free to include a screen snapshot of what you are referring to if it helps.

I have attached a screen print on the matter of a text field (as well as colour) for Project labels. Where the Project is set a colour, could it also be set a text label - for example, an industry group?

Hi @Kevin_Swannack. Thanks for the screenshot. You can’t set a text label directly onto the Project similar to assigning a colour. A couple of options to consider though:

  1. Edit the project name to include the text label: example - (Ind Group) - ECA’s and Insurance. Then use colours to further enhance separation.

  2. If your account allows (organisation vs workspace) - create Team’s to help categorise the projects into. https://asana.com/guide/videos/understanding-teams-chapter

  3. Use Tag’s on the task level to help categorise according to your preferred project text labels. https://asana.com/guide/help/tasks/fields

Asana2Go is aware of the Project Description field so it can generate reports including it, but this would have to be a custom report (duplicate and edit one of the standard ones).
