Support filtering for metrics

Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the bug you’re experiencing:
I am creating a donut style chart on a portfolio dashboard. When measuring by the Actual Time field I can filter by Time Entered Date but when using a custom field I cannot sort by Time Entered Date.

This is a workaround for Actual Time reporting in 24 hour days instead of logged hours, hence the custom field.

Steps to reproduce:
Actual Time Field:
Field type Time Tracking

Custom Field:
Field type Formula
Advanced formula: ( [[$ACTUAL_TIME]] + 0 ) / 60

Create portfolio, on dashboard create Chart style Donut > Report on Tasks
When measuring by Actual Time field:

When measuring by Custom Field:

Browser version:
Asana Application for Windows 11

What version of Asana are you using (Personal, Starter, Advanced, Enterprise, Enterprise+, Premium, Business or legacy Enterprise)?
Asana Business

This custom field is the officially suggested work around provided here: Number formatting of "estimated time" in charts in hours instead of days - #19 by Richard_Sather

If it is going to be the work around and not fixed, it needs to be supported by the “Time entered by date” filter

Hi @Georgia_M, sorry for the trouble, and thank you for providing us with the step-by-step. I’ve been able to reproduce this on my end, and the “Time entered by date” filter didn’t appear for me either. I’m reaching out to our Developers to confirm if this is expected and will keep you posted.

Thank you @Vanessa_N ! This “Time entered date” filter is missing in a few other places as well. Could you have them check why it is not available in the Search > Advanced Filter as well?


Hi everyone, sorry for the delay and thank you for your patience. Our Product team has confirmed that this is currently expected, unfortunately. At this time, we don’t support filtering for metrics in any view, but they’ve filed your feedback as an opportunity for improvement and I hope we can implement this in a future update!

I’ll move this thread to our Product Feedback section so other users can also upvote this request.
