Great overview Bastien.

FYI to all: Power Bi does not gather data for custom fields.

Do you think I should specify this or have a dedicated category for tools supporting custom fields?

This is great! As always, too many options are a problem and we need some kind of filtering or sorting but this is an amazing start for more conversation on these tools!

This was a first step before a potential dedicated website for this…

This is awesome Bastien.

I think it would be great if there was a section just for tools that support custom fields.

Great idea, or use an emoji to show it. But there are so many :scream: I’ll work on it.

I have added Kothar, Flowsana and Tagsana to the list.

I use this one. It should be a build in feature!

@Bastien_Siebman,

Minor point but you probably want to update “Kothar” to say “Ditto” (or perhaps mention that and also “Kothar 2.0” since a lot of people may know it by its former name).

@Bastien_Siebman - Once again, excellent job on this list.

I’ve really enjoyed Asana Navigator recently, so it might be a tool you’d consider adding to your list for improving Asana navigation and shortcuts: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/asana-navigator/ckfdnhplhmbingcopckooenamecdckne?hl=en

Great resource list, Bastien!

However i trying to look for a solution to setup successfully a project using VSM (Value Stream Mapping) methodology with tracking time with the concept of “lead time”.

I have checking Harvest as the main time tracking integrated solution for ASANA but not information on how to do this.

We are working with templates in ASANA to setup processes involving lead time and the VSM (Value Stream Mapping) concept.

For this it is needed to track the idle time between a task already done and the next time when you pick it up to start working on that, this could be tracked by a custom field and adding manually the lead time when you take the following task.

Does anybody could suggest how to use a time tracking app to set up this automatically?

You could have a script that goes through a project, picks the completion date of a task, the start date of another from a custom field, and fill another field with the difference? I could help if needed.
