Sort by parent filter

We use the board view of an Asana project as our Kanban board.


The board has “Next up”, “Doing”, “Under Review” and “Done” columns.

Each task on the board is either a

  • subtask of a supertask (i.e. task of a story) or
  • task on another project, with sections.

On our daily meetings, we discuss all tasks in the “Under Review” and “Doing” columns. Currently we must manually sort tasks in each column to group the relevant tasks together vertically. This manual process could be done by automatically by sorting.

Sort by parent

I would like to sort the tasks in each column by the supertasks’s title, if defined, and the task’s project titles+sections. For tasks with more than one parent project, the sort key would be the concatenation of the sorted parent project titles and sections.

To summarize, proposed “Parent” sort key would consist of

  1. Super-task’s title (if sub-task)
  2. Alphabetically sorted list of the tasks project title + section (if defined).


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

Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback!

While this feature isn’t available at this time, hopefully it’s something our Product team can implement in the future.

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if we have any updates :slight_smile:
