I’m trying to adopt Asana.
I searched for info on Start Dates and read the Asana Guide ( How to Complete Task Fields in Asana | Product Guide • Asana Product Guide)
I found a six year old topic that was close to what I was looking for but didn’t answer my question.
I have access to Start Dates on our company plan.
So, what I want is to not see tasks with a start date in the future. How can I make that happen?
This is very GTD. It is also part of the MYN methodology. And a ton of other productivity ideas. So, I am certain that there’s a way to do it but it is not obvious to me.
Is what I’m looking for common or uncommon?
Thanks in advance and sincere apologies if I missed a thread that answered this question.

I think the answer I just posted to your other question about Due dates has some valuable suggestions related to this question too, so please see:
@scottjohnson, Your issues are all address in my article here:
That covers an updated version of My Tasks Asana released several years after your post!
@Dan_Collins, I totally agree with you, and I strongly recommend to make a different distinction in setting Due dates, as described in my Forum Leaders Tip here:
A related point, in case you use dependencies, is to include a rule in your My Tasks to “promote” a task to “Now” or “Today” section if it should become unblocked, so you can see …
In addition, you might want to vote for this request too:
The new My Tasks v2 rule “Due date is approaching → Move task to a certain section” only triggers based on the Due date, not the Start date if one is present.
Please add (for Premium and above–that is, wherever Start date is available) a new rule: “Start/Due date is approaching → Move task to a certain section” and consider the Start date, if present, as the date to consider for this rule to fire, otherwise, the Due date if no Start date is present.
I believe most will want this behavior and f…
Thank you very much!
