Tie custom field to board columns



I have a scrum board where I sync tasks with my team. The board has columns like “todo”, “in progress”, “done”, etc. The board works well, and it is easy to move tasks between columns.

But, these tasks also exist in other boards. Especially, they are in the company board, which has its own groups and columns.

I need a way to reflect the task status across different boards.
We have a custom field of “status”, but I cannot tell Asana to automatically update it when I move tasks between columns.
It would be really helpful if the columns reflect this custom field. It would sync all of my tasks across the different boards.

Is this possible?


This seems like an essential feature and a no-brainer. +1!
