I run a facility that has a small manufacturing division. We are currently using Excel to enter mill orders and track them. I have been spending a lot of time figuring out how to switch us to Asana, and I’m ready to shake up the works. The one thing stopping me is how Asana prints tasks.
Our process, as I envision it, is simple. We enter an order into our ERP (which is ancient and a real POS) and then create the mill order in Asana. The task will be printed out and given to the mill as their production order. We will track the progress using Instagantt.
I use 2 paragraph fields, one for describing the item to be made, the other for describing the material to be used. Below is an example of how we enter the info and how we need it to print.
I created a “Test” task and pasted your info in and then went to the “…” button for the task and selected print. My print preview looked like this (just fyi, you can paste screenshots easily into this board with CTRL+V):
Okay, looks like it’s an issue with Custom Fields. I’m a freeloading free user so don’t have experience with that. @Marie might have some suggestions or be able to move this to the feature request board.
Anything new on this? It would be great to have the print format match the display format of the list view 1:1 or have the option of printing it that way… Maybe a List:Summary and a List:Detail print option? Anyone see something like that? Would modifying the CSS through something like Open Stylebot or User CSS as an interim workaround?
