User-level "save layout as default"

I really hope this request feature will up on the most wanted features :stuck_out_tongue:
@Marie :raised_hand: any move about Asana devteam on this one ?

We are also looking to see if this in the works as an updated feature!

I have seen a lot of forums discussing the need to save a view of the tasks in a project - but that the view should only be for the USER. for example I want to filter out all the other tasks that don’t apply to my department (our task list is a workflow of the entire process of a transaction, start to finish- so there are a ton of tasks) - that way I can see MY departments workflow when I am working out of tasks, and things aren’t getting lost/hard to find. What I filter for and what someone else filters for are going to be completely different based on what their role is. It seems cumbersome to have to add a filter each time I go into my task list - if I save it - then if someone from another dept needs to change it when they are working. I need the ability to see other department’s tasks when appropriate, however, 95% of the time I just want to see tasks for my dept - is there really not an option for this? I feel like I have to be missing something! Any tips for how to deal with this or a workaround are greatly appreciated!

Yes, you need to use an advanced search that you save :slight_smile:

so I need to create a specific advanced search for every project I am working on? For reference, I am in commercial real estate and each transaction is a project. And then for each new deal added and then delete when that when a deal closes so I dont have a bunch of reporrts that arent applicable to what I’m doing.

Is this in development? It seems like a pretty standard (and heavily requested) feature.

I ask because we have a group testing for our company and this may be a non-negotiable based on how our company is set up. Thanks for the quick response!

I did not hear about “the ability to quick filter and save just for you” as being on the roadmap, but Asana does not share its roadmap anyway.

Your report could pull data from various projects, or even all projects from a team, and then you can sort the results by projects.

That’s the only solution I see based on the quick discussion we just had. If this gets in the way of choosing Asana, you might benefit from a private session to look deeper at your system and needs!

Hi @Laura_Houghton, welcome to the Asana Community Forum :wave:

While this feature isn’t available at this time, hopefully it’s something our Product team can implement in the future

We do have an existing thread for this feature request in the #productfeedback category so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with the existing one to consolidate feedback.

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if I have any updates :slight_smile:

Thank you!
