Users in custom fields (Created by)

Hey @John_Pirrie, just to ensure I get it right you would like to have a pre-programmed custom field that has the names of all Asana users in your team listed?

Would this product feedback request match what you are looking for? Users in custom fields

Also you can create such custom field manually very fast via csv import

Hi Andrea, yes the linked suggestion is exactly what I’d like.

I should be able to create as many custom fields as I like that use the dynamic list of account users as the possible selections in a drop down (a variation of selecting single choice or multi choice data types).

Okay sure I understand :slight_smile:

Please add this functionality. It is sorely missing!

This functionality would make such a difference in my organization’s workflow, please add :slight_smile:

Hi everyone! I see some of you have requested an option to see who has created a task in list view, similar as you can see the task assignee at the moment. I’m happy to announce we are launching the new Metadata Fields!

Going forward, you will be able to add the following fields to project list view by toggling them on from the Customize Menu:

  • Created on
  • Created by
  • Completed on
  • Last modified on

If you are interested in having multiple assignee in the task as a second field, you can upvote for this feature here: Assign multiple assignees on one task

If you have any questions, please reach out via our #tips category!


Hi there! I can see the “Created by” field, but it doesn’t appear in the list when I’m trying to create a rule. For example, if this request was created by [name], assign it to [name]. Is that feature on its way? Am I missing something?

Those fields are not yet available in Rules, that’s why.
