Task Duration by Days


I am new to the Asana community and look forward to leaning more. I have started to dive into the platform to build workflow templates. These templates are organizational operations with dependencies and assignments for specific skillsets/personas.

That said, we are at a place where we work on tasks by a duration of days. Is there a field that would allow us to display the calculated number of Workdays or Calendar Days assigned to the Task


Task: Example Task

Task Start Date: Wednesday, January 1, 2020
Task End Date: Monday, January 6, 2020

Field: Workdays: 4 [SUMWorkdays]
Field: Calendar Days: 6 [SUMCalendardays]

Thanks for the help :slight_smile:

Hi @Kevin_Kappeler. You can add a custom field to store what you need but there is nothing in Asana that would automatically calculate and populate the fields.

You may be able to achieve it via the API but not sure…


FYI the Dynamic Duration workflow type of Flowsana will automatically populate start/end dates based on task durations that you enter.
