Tracking project delay


I would like to track any delays in end date for my projects. Which means that if the general start & end date of a project shift, I would like to register by how many days. How would this be possible to track in Asana? Would it be possible to lock a column so that I can have project managers put in their initial estimated end date (a baseline of some sort) and then a forecasted one that they can modify as they go?

Thanks for any help or suggestions,

Kind regards,


Hi Fabienne,
Inside the final task in the project you would be able to see the traceability of how it has moved out. Some clients of mine often have a section showing the initial timescales and then can see the difference between.

Hi @Fabienne_Van_Mierloo

You can do this using Portfolios. You can’t lock the column, but in Portfolios you can add a project start/end date that isn’t affected by making changes in the project itself. Then, when you look at the project in a the Portfolio’s timeline view you will see the baseline with the milestones. Once the milestones shift because of the project due dates you will see the difference.
