Sorting in Asana

It would be incredibly useful to be able to sort by more than one field. For instance, Completed/Incomplete and then Status. Right now the only way to achieve this seems to be manually moving tasks.

HI @Jandi_Lee_Willis and thank you so much for sharing your feedback with us! This is actually a quite popular request in the Forum and we already have a thread on this topics! I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with the existing thread to consolidate all feedback in one place; hope that’s ok!

That’s great! Sorry I didn’t find it! :slight_smile:

@Jandi_Lee_Willis, and others, until Asana hopefully improves sorting, consider the free (to most users/companies) Asana2Go:

This request to sort by multiple attributes (at least by project and then due date) is over 2 years old. How do we get this to happen? What are we paying for? Sorry to be blunt, but it seems like a basic feature and it’s been a long time.

Please vote for my sorting request aswell! :smile:

I would also really like to see this feature - specifically, I’d really like to have the ability to sort by due date within sections - not all of my sections are interrelated, so when I sort by due date it mixes up my different types of tasks I have per project.

Tiago_Claus - I am asking the same question. Primary Secondary sort seems like a very fundamental requirement. In the advertising it states that it is like a spreadsheet (Not). In any spreadsheet I have used you can have as many secondary sorts as you want, Asana doesn’t even have one.

Any more information on this, the silence on this request is deafening.

Agreed, This functionality is definitely needed asap.

It’s insane, it seems like tasks are BARELY linked to the section it’s nested in. When I do try to sort by due date, tasks are literally pulled out of my sections. This gets even messier when I show completed tasks. Asana can’t automatically separate the completed tasks from the incomplete tasks within the same section? I guess the only work around is to manually move the tasks yourself by dragging and dropping (with no sorting) which feels like a very archaic method. Please fix this soon!

Hello! Is there an update on implementing this sorting feature? Is it on the product roadmap? At Calm we also have a desperate need to be able to sort our sections by date (not the all-view which is currently on offer) and this thread has been going for over 2 years now. I’d be grateful to know what’s a priority for Asana so we can make good judgments on what best we can use Asana for. Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:

Hi @jade2,

In the last two years, we’ve already implemented a lot of features that were requested via this thread and we recently completed important work on Section that will allow us to further develop sections (ex: allow to sort within sections). I haven’t a precise timeline to share for the feature your’re interested in but I would recommend keeping an eye on the #community-forum-announcements category for the latest news :slight_smile:

I am relatively new to Asana and really enjoy the product but It’s crazy that this thread has been going since March 2017 and still no implementation by Asana.

This seems like such a basic request. Please get it implemented.
