Swimlanes and Kanban boards

+1 Absolutely would love swimlanes, too, in order to visualize tasks in 2 dimensions rather than just 1.

So, after almost 5 years swim lanes are still not a thing?

Honestly, I’m finding it to be almost useless without swim lanes.

pls add swimlanes

Sorely needed, please add my vote to this request! Disappointing that nobody such as @Marie or another staffer has even gotten in here lately since it’s such a popular request. Really need it, too!

Hi,

I’m evaluating Asana and Breeze.pm and see Asana more stable than Breeze but Breeze has swimlanes.

Breeze can provide it but don’t know why Asana does not have.


Thanks,
Duc

5 years (!) later… still no swimlanes…

Swimlanes would make Asana a much more flexible tool for task management.

Hi @Đức_Doãn, @Nathanaël_Tselentis, and @Alexander_Rotzsch, welcome to the Asana Community Forum! :+1:

Thanks for weighing in on this feature request. :sparkles:

Is it going to happen soon?

This is a pretty fundamental tool for Kanban. It’s a real shame the Asana product team haven’t implemented this after such heavy feedback after five years.

Please add swimlanes

Swimlanes please! Trying to visually organize a client’s large board right now and swimlanes would be such an incredible asset for everyone involved.

This!

New to Asana, as company I’m consulting with is using for backlog, requirements, development, etc. The very first thing I looked to figure out was how to organize the mess of tasks into swimlanes and was surprised to see there is no such capability. May recommend a move to a product that does this as it is such a helpful organizational tool that really doesn’t add much, if any complexity to the system of managing projects.

Welcome, @Paul_A,

Since you write that you’re new to Asana, but are considering advising a client using Asana to not use it. Are you familiar with all of Asana’s features? Many of us swear by Asana (and 60% of the Fortune 500 use it). You may be unaware, if you’re new, of other features we use where you might first choose swimlanes (or that swimlanes are present in Timeline view, in case you weren’t aware).

It sounds like you’re designing workflows in Asana. My intermediate workshop (free; done with Asana’s great education group) may be of interest:

Thanks,

Larry
