Swimlanes and Kanban boards

boards

#21

Agree, used this in other software and is a real missed feature for our team in Asana


#22

I agree, we have just started using Asana, and Swimlanes and more Filtering options are sorely missing.


#23

Any word from the Asana team about adding swimlanes to kanban boards? Or at least being able to filter tasks by assignee would be a decent solution in the meantime.


#24

Yes please add this feature asap. This is the reason why we have moved to Breeze.pm since they offer this feature and for blogger Outreach campaigns this is a must since the workaround is not feasible.


#25

If you have a List project with Sections, the Timeline view will show you a form of swimlanes - where each Section is a lane. The swimlanes can be reordered by reordering the Sections in List View.

However, Timelines cannot currently be filtered in any way - not even for Hide Completed, let alone by assignee or other fields. I certainly agree that full-featured filtering in every data view is a must-have.


#26

I am looking for a way to view tasks on a Timeline grouped by the column they belong to in the Project (Board type ) , the same sort of timeline grouping by “Section” that is available for a “List” type project ? This is almost a deal breaker for me !

Hey @John_Dixon, thank you for your great feedback.

There is already an existing thread on this topic, I have gone ahead and merged your question with this thread. Please feel free to leave a vote on this main thread if you would like!

Have a great Monday

I love timelines - this is going to be a great feature as you guys keep improving it.

I actually really like the simplicity - but the one thing I’m missing is swimlanes. I manage 4 separate products but manage one consolidated roadmap in an Asana project with a timeline.

With custom fields, I can sort of indicate different product lines but it’s very manual to keep re-grouping features into de facto swimlanes. More importantly, it’s not very clear to the stakeholders as to which product area a feature pertains simply by color.

Swimlanes would really help take this feature from good to great!


#29

Yes! This would help so many of the issues I have using a Kanban board in Asana.


#30

Swimlanes would certainly help, as would some options to reorder/group tasks within timeline view.

Thanks Edda , so I guess that means “no” , currently this is not possible …mmm
