Asana Release Notes, January 2018

Release notes can be found at https://asana.com/guide/help/faq/release-notes.

Custom fields on boards: Custom fields now appear on task previews in your boards projects so important information is front and center—such as status, priority, cost, or channel. Quickly scan your project so you can see where work stands, find what needs your attention, and make sure nothing falls through the cracks. Custom fields are available for Asana Premium. Learn more.

Comment-only boards projects: We recently released comment-only projects and now you can change your project access on boards, too. Create comment-only projects for work you want to share with a lot of people but only a few need to contribute to, such as company goals, your product roadmap, or launch plans. This way, your teammates will have the information they need to do their jobs, and you can safeguard against unwanted edits or accidental changes. Comment-only projects are available for Asana Premium. Learn more.

CSV importer: Import your spreadsheets right into an Asana project so you can begin managing your projects in a collaborative, flexible tool with just a few clicks. If you use Excel, Google Sheets, Smartsheet, or want to move Trello projects into Asana, these spreadsheets can easily be converted to a CSV file, and then imported. Learn more.

Reports: All customers will now see a Reports section in their left sidebar with search results such as tasks I’ve created. In addition, Asana Premium customers will see new and existing custom saved searches under this section. Learn more.

Disable Inbox notifications for today’s tasks: Stop receiving notifications in your Asana Inbox for tasks starting or due today with this new hack, so you can more quickly scan your Inbox. Go to My Profile Settings and select Hacks to disable these notifications. Please note, hacks are experimental features that we’ve been tinkering with. They’re not supported features and may change, break, or disappear at any time.

New button styles: We’ve made some visual updates to our buttons so they’re easier to use.

New date picker on mobile: Quickly set a start or due date in our mobile app with the newly designed date picker. Start dates are available for Asana Premium. Get Asana for iOS or Asana for Android.

Share to Asana for Android: Now you can easily add work to Asana with the Share to Asana option for Android. When you’re in another app, tap the Share menu to create a task in Asana. Learn more about Asana for Android.

Status updates for iOS: Share an update on the status of your project with your team so everyone’s in the loop right from your iPhone or iPad. Learn more about Asana for iOS.
