Workload Workaround or Alternative

My company is on the premium version of Asana but I need advice. I am wondering how to get the capabilities of workload without the business level. Does anyone have advice on third-party integrations that would achieve this? Upgrading Asana is not an option. Thank you!

Hi @Cheryl_Pollak, welcome to the Asana Community Forum! We offer a couple of integrations that could help you achieve this, I recommend you to have a look at the list here: Asana Apps and Integrations • Asana

I also recommend you to have a look at this great tip from one of our Forum Leaders: Time tracking in Asana: a community built comparison

Hi @Cheryl_Pollak,

Here’s a description of one possible workaround for Premium users:

@LEGGO @Bastien_Siebman @lpb, any others you know of?


@Cheryl_Pollak, Can you say in more detail when your goal is–exactly what you would like to do–beyond “get the capabilities of workload” which may mean something different to each of us interpreting that?

@Phil_Seeman, Good find on @IvanStaykov’s post. That’s what I was thinking too as one option: using List View and numeric custom fields and their tallies, either with auto sums in columns or ad hoc sums via multi-select, no third party tool needed.


(disclaimer: I’m the creator) a custom report could be created, perhaps based on one of the standard ones provided; it can do math on custom fields (even non-numeric ones) which would be more effort to implement but could help if the above come up short.
