Switching from Boards to List View (and vice versa)

omg i am so excited, that are really great news :sun_with_face:

and how long will the migration process last for 100% of the Accounts. Do we talk about days, weeks or months?

@OSTMOST, we do not currently have estimates for how long it will take to migrate all Asana customers. We will have a better projection when the migration is steadily underway.


Thanks for the reply! Will there be a chance to manualy start the process for individual accounts? Or beta tests? We would be happy for every week earlier we could switch between boards and lists.


Unfortunately, we’re not able to manually opt users in but we will make sure to regularly keep you updated in the Forum as we make progress! Thank you so much for your patience and interest in this new feature!

@Marie What’s the update on this? Really need to exchange over list view and can’t risk losing all my tasks or making a mess of my workspace with duplicate channels…

Hi @Erin_McDonald, you can find the latest update here! I will update this thread as soon as I have more info!

Hey all,

Here’s a new update on this upcoming change:


Is this done yet. I’m seeing a lot of back and forth, but no clear answer. Two and a half years since the start of this thread seems like a dramatically long time to wait for something like this.

It is being rolled out slowly to everyone. Some of us already have this feature.

Actually not being rolled out to existing users yet - Asana reports that’s currently planned to start in mid to late July.

For new users just creating a new account, half of them are getting the new design (that’s what Bastien is referring to).


Thanks for the clarification Phil you are completely right :slight_smile:


If you have the feature, how do you know you have it? Where is it in the menu? Thanks Bastien.

At the top of a project, you will have two tabs “List” & “Board”, and then the usual tabs.

Is there any news on when this will be completed ? I vaguely remember seeing information about it in a newsletter but now can’t find it.

This topic has been kicking around since '17 so would be great to see some progress.

For me, may main requirement is being able to multi-select tasks to make bulk changes. This is very tedious in board view!

It’s actively happening right now - they are converting a batch of workspaces each day. I haven’t seen any update on how long they think it will take but I believe it’ll be a few months before it’s done - after all, they have literally millions of users, so imagine how many workspaces! So your data could be converted literally today, or in a few weeks/months; we’ll all have to have a little patience but at least it’s finally here.


Thanks for the update. Anyway the team can prioritize this update for those who have commented on / requested this feature in this thread? :wink:


@Marie just checking if I can register (somewhere?) to receive an alert when the switching of views is complete?

I would like to create a new account and although I read that 1/2 of the new accounts get the board <—> list features, I tried with 4 different domains and they all did not have this feature. I only have a few default tasks in each–so before I get this setup, I want to test that this will work before switching from Trello for my team. @Marie do you know if this is possible?
