Viewing all assigned tasks across multiple workspaces

As much as this has been requested and as much support as this has gotten, why has it not been prioritized. Does Asana not care what their customers are asking for and what features we would like to see?

This is something that people have been asking for for over 2.5 years and if you don’t care enough about what features we want and would like to see maybe its time for people to move to other platforms that have prioritized and listened to what users are asking for.

Every now and then, I hope that either Asana or someone else will create a native interface for seeing all Asana tasks assigned to me. I envisage a multiple column layout with each workspace lined up. Maybe like the Board layout. Maybe a total number of tasks at the top. Maybe each list being sortable by current order, date, project. I don’t need it to do everything the workspace view does, but I need to see its task details, including the project it’s in, and any subtasks, comments, etc.

It’d also work if there was a global tag or field you can add to tasks that allow you to see all tagged cross-workspace tasks on one screen. Then I could go through my workspaces (I develop and consult for different non profits) and identify everything I want to get done today or this week, and then have a single view to keep me on track so I don’t get to the end of the day and realise I forgot about a task in a particular workspace.

I have one such interface designed - I just need the time to work on its development! Its My Tasks view will display your tasks across all of your organizations/workspaces.

I’m trialing Asana right now, loved it up until I found this thread and realized there is currently no way to view all of your assigned tasks in a single view. My team will never adopt this tool without this feature as we often have 20+ different projects on the go, which everyone is involved with in some capacity. Flipping back and forth between projects, trying to determine workload/deadlines etc. becomes impossible…this is what Asana was supposed to help solve…seems like a pretty basic/key feature that both Trello and Jira offer. Disappointed to come across this…likely won’t extend the trial.

Hi Marie, perhaps you can help by getting in touch with the development team? I believe in your ability to influence the product road map ;). Flipping back and forth between projects, trying to determine workload/deadlines etc. becomes impossible…this is what Asana was supposed to help solve…this is a basic/key feature that both Trello and Jira offer…needs to be prioritized asap…really.

Hey @Monica_V - welcome to the Forum.

Just to clarify: I think what you’re asking for is to see multiple Tasks across all of your Projects, and even Teams. You can definitely do that - it is definitely the way Asana was built.

This thread is referring to seeing all Tasks across multiple “Workspaces”, or “Organizations.” That is a level higher in the Asana hierarchy. You and all your co-workers would likely be in the same Organization and would never encounter this issue. But if you, personally, started using Asana with, say, a non-profit group you’re a part of, then you would create almost an entirely different account, but that’s called a “Workspace.” In Asana, you can’t pull all Tasks across totally distinct Workspaces together into one list, which is what this thread pertains to.

If I’m misunderstanding your comment just ignore. But as long as everything is within your Organization (which is how many/most Asana users operate), then you don’t need to worry about it not pulling things together across multiple Projects.

This is frustrating, however, I am not sure that every person who came and commented have also upvoted this suggestion. So just to reiterate - if this is important to you, make sure to hit that vote button at the very top of the page. :slight_smile:

I’ll add my voice to this list. We’re the parent company to two subsidiaries. Each company has it’s own workspace and not being able to cross-assign tasks between workspaces is really causing us a great deal of grief. It seems all the competitors to Asana can handle this basic feature easily. If Asana continues to refuse to listen to the demands of it’s user base, we’ll just move to another tool. And yes, we’re operating Premium Licenses across the companies. Fix this guys, it’s been almost 3 years…

Hey @Marie - any update on this particular Product Request? I know your team prioritizes based on things like Activity and Votes - which this Topic has being the 5th most Voted item in Product Feedback, and being open since April 2017! I’ve long wanted this, but similar to @Andrew22 will probably run into bigger issues with this now that we have a parent company and a sister company, with many people working across orgs in some capacity.

ANY info would be helpful.
