🤯 The most confusing custom field I have ever seen

When I tell my clients that colors are important and they convey meaning, I am not joking. Just looking at the custom field makes me cringe.

My biggest advices to every Asana user are:

  • stop using colors everywhere
  • use them accordingly
  • red is bad, green is good, no exception
  • when you look at your project, what should struck you are High priorities and overdue tasks. Nothing else.

PS: that is a real custom field I saw yesterday during a session with a client :slight_smile: we had a good laugh about it :rofl:

A green urgent just made me cringe too, lol. Colors should be there to expedite one’s visual review, completely agree, they shouldn’t be used everywhere, otherwise you’ve defeated their purpose.

Yet the standard out of the box priority field doesn’t conform to the industry standard of High = Red, Meduim = Amber and Low = Green. Go figure :grinning:
