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).
