The Pros and Cons of using Asana Software

Asana is a widely used, highly rated, user-friendly web-based project management tool that businesses can employ. It enables teams to centralize everything from long-term objectives to day-to-day tasks, making it easier for team members to know their responsibilities, priorities, and progress. For example, Asana allows project sections to be divided into lists of tasks. Each task can be further segmented into sub-tasks, and other project participants can be invited, files can be attached, and descriptions can be added to each task. With this tool, teams can eliminate concerns about overlooked work, missed deadlines, and endless email chains.

If you need an advanced reporting and exporting platform to boost Asana’s capabilities, consider our tool Bridge24 for Asana.

Calculated Fields for Asana, Basecamp, and Trello

Calculated fields or computed fields are a feature that allows users to perform calculations based on values from other fields within the same project. They are typically used to automate the calculation of values that would be time-consuming or error-prone to do manually.

Bridge24 offers six calculated fields for Asana, Basecamp, and Trello. These fields can be used in most views: grids, charts, reports, and exports.

Age (days): The amount of time (in days) that has passed since the task was created. We calculate the value using the “Created At” field with today’s date.

Completion (days): This represents the number of days it took to complete the task since its creation. We calculate the value by taking the “Completed At” and the “Created At” fields.

Completed Late: This represents whether a task was completed on time. We calculate the value […]

Asana: Include subtasks for better reporting and exporting

Several Asana users have asked if it is possible to include subtasks as main tasks in the different views of the application. You are probably wondering why it’s important?

Some customer issues:

  • Some of my tasks are not shown in the charts. I think it is not including subtasks for some reason.
  • My subtasks have due dates but I cannot see them in the calendar view.
  • My issue is that when I want to download attachments from Asana I can only download the attachments from main tasks. How to include subtask attachments to download?
  • The grid view is powerful, but the subtasks are only displayed in a tiny subtasks column. How can I fully see them in the grid?

By default, when you click on a project from the left panel, we only display the main tasks. If you want the subtasks to be included, you need to activate the toggle at the top-right of your screen. See the image below:

Bridge24 for Asana Improvements – Start Time and Multi-select Custom Fields

Asana recently added a number of features including start times, and multi-select custom fields. Bridge24 has incorporated both of these upgrades into the interface to use throughout.

Start time inclusion

Use start times on the Edit panel, as well as view the data in the Grid and use in reports, history, and exports. On the Edit panel, you can click on the time icon and modify the values directly and update to Asana:

Multi-select Custom Field usage

Multi-select custom fields contain more than one value. Add the column to the Grid to view. When used within a Report or Chart, the grouping will be applied to each value present. This means that a task can appear more than once within a report (depending on the number of values in its multi-select field).
