Update Status - function not working?

Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing:
Whenever clicking to update project status, a new URL is generated but no new status field appears. Will also not allow to change status in header. The screen just freezes. Tried logging out/in, restarted browser (up to date), cleared cache, but nothing will allow me to update the project.

Steps to reproduce: Click on Project > Progress link (in header) > Update Status button

Browser version: Firefox 77.0.1

Also having the same issue. It works on some projects, but not others.

Having the same issue. I had started composing an update, closed the tab, and then expected to click “Update status” to open it again, as it has worked before.

The difference is that I had added and completed tasks in between, which may be breaking the smart “Tasks Completed” or “Milestones” sections within the update.

I’m having the same issue. When I click “Update Status” the URL changes but nothing loads. Not working on any of my projects and unable to complete my weekly update. I removed all cookies for Asana and logged back in, but that didn’t fix it.

Some project it works sometimes and it doesn’t other times, and some projects does not work at all,
although, I am the owner of all these projects.

Hi @Geoff_Hoffheinz, @Matt_Demers, @Stephen_Johnson and @Karem_Ahmad. Thanks for your report! our team is working to fix this issue and we hope to have an update soon.

Again I’m sorry for any inconvenience. Let me know if you have follow-up questions in the meantime.

For what it’s worth, the problem eventually stopped; I hit “Update Status” and it took me back to my draft. However, from what people are saying it seems that it’s intermittent.


Same for me. It works now and appears to be intermittent. :man_shrugging:

Hi everyone!
