Show days from creation to completion in dashboard

Our CEO want to periodically know the average working days that we take to complete tasks in a specific project. I there a way to do that with the dashboard?

Actually we’re filling an excel file with the date of creation and completion from which he then takes his averages but that’s a tedious job. :pensive:

Hi @Nicolò_Milesi, welcome to the Asana Community Forum :wave:t2:

At this time, it is not possible to show the average length of task completion time in working days in the Dashboard. You can, however, do this per task by using a time tracking tool. Take a look at some of our integrations here:

I hope this helps! :slight_smile:

You should send me an email (, I have a solution which is a script that runs every night, goes through tasks within a project, and updates a custom field based on a custom formula. I could definitely fill a custom field with the number of days between creation and completion! :heart:
