Sort and filter project by multiple fields (Due date and assignee for example)

Hi @Hema_Sri_Sankarneni, thanks for reaching out! As it stands, it’s currently not possible to filter or sort by multiple custom fields. We have a thread in the forum on this topic so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with the main thread to consolidate feedback!

I don’t know if this is the same topic or a different issue but in addition to the suggestion in this thread, it would be nice to filter by a single field with multiple options.

Example: Drop-down for “client” has 10 options. I can filter to show one at a time, but what if I want to show a specific 2-3? I know I can do an advanced search in the project, but it’s not the same. I don’t see the tasks organized in the project sections with all the other fields visible.

Any news on this request? Right now I don’t use the filter options almost at all. I want to be able to see everything in the project that was a) due today OR b) due before today. This is because I want to have it automatically not show any reoccurring tasks that won’t be due until later, without having to update the due dates of any tasks I’ve run behind on.

Hello,

I’m also wondering if there is any news of this request and if not, what the timeline is for how quickly we will be able to see it? It would be EXTREMELY helpful for my workflow and save me a lot of time. It sounds like it is the same with others.

Thanks,
Meghan

I’d love to see the ability to add multiple sorts in the project view.

Some projects that we use capture issues or feature requests—we generally need to categorize by priority and time commitment. We find ourselves manually sorting the list often to visualize what is a priority and what we have time for.

I’m sure there would be many other use cases for this feature.

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

This is a popular feature request and we do have an existing #productfeedback thread open for this request in the forum. I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with the existing one to consolidate feedback :slight_smile:

I’ll keep you updated in the main thread :slight_smile:

Just adding yet another request to be able to sort by more than one parameter. As others have said, this ability would be tremendously helpful, and would save a LOT of time. Thanks!

Hi there!
When you are sorting, sometimes you want to sort by Priority, then by project and finally alphabetically.
Now you only can sort only by one of them.
It would be helpful to be able to sort by more than one category, as you can do in Excel for instance.
Thanks!!!

Hi @Carlos_Jiménez_Cabel, welcome to the Asana Community Forum :wave:t2: Thanks for sharing your feedback with us. :slight_smile:

As it stands, it’s currently not possible to sort by multiple custom fields. We already have a thread on this topic so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with Sort project by 2 criteria (Due date and assignee for example) to centralize feedback.

I’ll keep you updated in the main thread if anything changes!

So just to be clear - in nearly 3 and a half years Asana still has not added this vital feature since users started requesting it?

To Kelsey’s point, is there any update on the timeline for when we can expect this feature? Thanks so much!
