Sort / Collate Projects By Owner

projects

#1

I’d like to have an easy way to see which projects I am the owner of and therefore need to keep on-top of.

I’d also like to be able to see which projects a member of my team is an owner of so that when i’m having a one-to-one catch up with them I can prepare by having a quick look over their projects.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Lee

I need the same in dashboard view.

Hi @Lee_Denny Unfortunately this is not possible at the moment. That said, in the meantime, you might be interested in this workaround outlined by my colleague Kaitie: List of own projects.

Hi Marie,

Thanks for the reply.

That workaround is pretty cumbersome and inaccurate.

Could you consider building this feature? It’s a pretty basic need of, and functionality for, a project management software system.

Thanks,
Lee

I would suggest the workaround options are

  • a Dashboard with a custom order
  • create a Project that tracks other Projects

Unfortunately both options require you to manually and consistently update them. And more unfortunately you have to know what is going on (without help from Asana) to keep them up to date.

The Asana search, while excellent for finding Tasks, doesn’t really help you here.

A meaningful solution requires Asana to add at least one of the following.

  • A search option for Projects, added to the existing options for Tasks and Conversations.
  • A dashboard that updates and sorts based on Project owner.

Either would be a valuable addition.

I had a look and it doesn’t even look like you can save a custom search / filter / report in the sidebar for quick access. We are relatively new to Asana, but so far it seems to be creating work for our team, not helping get it done!

We are considering moving to Todoist or Flow or something with basic functionalities like this which make it easy to bring important things to the foreground and allow you to focus on what you really need to without creating extra work; if anyone has experience with those let me know?

I’ll keep you updated with our adventures!

Asana does provided a saved search (report) feature. Pretty useful.

It doesn’t say in the guide below, but you can also rename the saved report.

thanks vincent, il take a look at this option!


#9

As far as I can see though, this option still doesn’t let you search for a list of projects by owner. This is an essential option for us as well.
Also can I get a report of all projects like the dashboard google report?

@Marie is it going to be possible to view a list of projects that I am owner of in the new Homepage feature? Please please please add it as part of that - it’s so frustrating not being able to see easily which projects I am owner of!
