Timeline sorting by custom field

When viewing the timeline, I want to sort tasks by custom field so that the custom field can be used as swimlanes.

See this gif from the Timeline article for reference:

YES! I really want this feature as well.


I would love the ability to filter the project timeline by a custom field. We have have the Action Plan for the year, for our department, in Asana that we present in a Quarterly Business Review each quarter. Being able to filter the Timeline by the Custom field we have for “Team” would be easier visually to present but to do that we need the ability to filter by a custom field (for us Team).


We need filter parity with list view. We bring several programs into a common “sprint” backlog planning session. In list view we are able to filter on a custom field (ie program/team name) to have focused conversations. Need same for timeline view.

Aside from default sections to be on the timeline, please add an option to change sections the available dropdown view option. Thanks!

Thanks for your feedback @Rolando_Evaristo! We already have a thread on this topic so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with Timeline sorting by custom field to centralize feedback. We don’t have news about this feature yet but I’ll keep you posted!

I would be keen to just show a custom field on the timeline. That would make me happy
