Sort Tasks by Task Creation Date (Oldest \ Newest First)

Hi @AjD! Apologies for the delay in getting back to you!

I don’t have an update on this topic yet but as I mentioned before, rest ensure I’ll keep you posted here as soon as I get more information on this.

In the meantime, If you run an Advanced Search for tasks in a specific project you can then sort the search result by creation time. Please see screenshot attached.

Would that help?

Marie – I like to have the “Task Create Date” a field that can be added to the view. It’s valuable information if you are trying to prioritize a backlog of tasks.

@Marie Any update on this request? It has been 2 1/2 years since this request was initially posted. From a user’s side, this seems like a basic request not sure how complicated it is to have taken this much time?

Until Asana offers natively, consider this (disclaimer: I’m the creator):

Any update Asana? Is this anywhere in the feature queue? Would be a great feature!

Natalia – Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately that doesn’t address my use case. I need to know the aging of the tasks in the backlog. Your solution puts the tasks in a sort order, but doesn’t provide any information on when the task was created so that I can assess how “stale” the task is becoming.
It looks like the “date record added” data is available in Asana. What’s the challenge with exposing that date value? While you’re at it, can you also expose “date record updated”, which would help track how long a task has gone with our being updated?

Hi Asana - this feature is very much needed! Please make “Date Task Created” into a sort feature! We are begging you!
