Timeline - view multiple projects together

timeline

#1

Does anyone know if you can view multiple timelines together?

My teams account is set up so that each project is separate, but there are a few that share the same resources, so I’d like to see a timeline view that displays the 3 projects together.

Thanks!


Timeline across multiple projects
Timeline multiple projects and available resources
Timeline by team/user

Great question, @sarah_stern!

At this time it isn’t possible to view multiple projects (or Timelines) in one Timeline view. The good news is, this feature is on our team’s radar so hopefully we add this to the roadmap soon.

The best workaround to get multiple projects in one view is to create an Advanced Search report and view your projects in one calendar. Learn more here: https://asana.com/guide/help/fundamentals/search#gl-reports

Hi! Here is how you can view multiple projects in one Timeline:

  1. Create a new Project.
  2. Add tasks across all teams/projects to this new project
  3. View everything in Timeline.

Note: If you set the new project to private, then the owners/followers of the added task will not get notified and will not see the addition to the private project.

Hope this helps.

Hi!

Have a look at Timeline - view multiple projects together

@Marie to merge the threads :wink:

Hey @Barbara_Rourke
I’ve merged this thread with an existing post that addresses this question; take a look :arrow_heading_up:

Let us know if you have extra questions (Thanks @Bastien_Siebman! :wave: )

Thanks but having to create a separate project with the due dates just doubles my work and I have to remember if I change dates on one board I have to change it on another board. This is not really a viable solution for me. Please let me know when you can view multiple projects on a timeline. Until then I will downgrade to the free version.

Hi There, I agree that making a whole new project just to have multiple projects show up on one timeline is time consuming and is why we went with Asana - to save time.

For larger organizations that have multiple teams in one department, this feature would be super helpful as those in project management really need to have a timeline/gantt chart/roadmap to share with external stakeholders.

Happy to hear that this feature is on Asana’s radar - hope it comes soon!

Hi there.

We are in need of being able to see multiple projects in the Timeline view, and currently the closest thing is either the calendar view which doesn’t work for us, or InstaGantt which is ok. We also have a need for seeing available resources, and the only option we see is using yet another third party platform, which is Outplanr, and we rather just do it all under Asana.

We know you have these, and many others planned, and working on them. But what is their delivery time? Is it in the next month? Less, a whole lot more? That way, we can plan accordingly.

Thanks!

Hi @Yashar_Ahmadpour; we already have a thread on this topic, so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with Timeline - view multiple projects together to consolidate all feedback on one main thread!

Hi,

I like “Chronologie” (it shall be "Timeline in the english version). But s I work with small team, every one work in a lot of project.
If I’m not mistaking on can only use Chronologie in a project, but with a lot of project it’s not easy to organize them with respect for the available time of each people. I’d like to see and manage the chronology by team (see if projects doesn’t superimpose themselves too much) and by user.

For now I have to add every task of each project to a global project to see it, I’d like this to be easier, like using research for discriminating users/project and yet use chronology to plan everything quickly.

Best regards.

Hi @Shimegi and welcome to the Community Forum! We already have a thread on this topic, so I’ve gone ahead and merged your feedback with the main thread. Feel free to add your vote to the main thread as votes don’t carry over hen thread are merged!

On a side note “Chronologie” is called Timeline in English :wink:(I’ve corrected it in your post, hope that’s ok!). If you’re using “Chronologie” I guess you speak French; just wanted to let you know that we also have a part of our Forum dedicated to French speakers, check it out: https://forum.asana.com/c/forum-francais.

Hi,
Can anyone tell me if Asana introduced this yet? I’m using Asana at the moment and it’s good, but without the ability to view multiple projects on one timeline it becomes largely useless because we can’t easily use it to forecast fundamental things like when we are likely to be at capacity and therefore need to get more help or when we are too busy to take on more work. Such an oversight.


#17

Hi @toby1! This is feature is not built-in Asana yet, but here is a good workaround to achieve what your’re looking for.

This is definitely something we’re planning to implement in the near future; I’ll make sure to update this thread as soon as I have more info in this regards.


#18

I too would love for this feature to be introduced please!


Timeline: Can I see a Gantt chart view of all projects?
#19

Hello -
I am very new customer and this is my first post. I am surprised there is no simple way to have a dynamic master timeline for all projects. This is exactly what I was expecting from Asana.

In a comment above, @Terri_Burden notes the project is on the dev team’s radar -
any idea when we might see this feature in production?

Thanks.

Hi @DMS and welcome to the Forum :slight_smile:

We’re aware this is a popular request, and our Team is still working on improving Timelines (as an example, we recently implemented Sections in Timelines) so hopefully this feature will be released in the near future. I’ll make sure to update this thread as soon as it is the case! Thank you so much for your patience :slight_smile:
