How to switch from list view to board view?


#1

We’re checking Asana if it fits our requirements, and I couldn’t find this option anywhere, what am I missing?


#2

@Shir_Ekerling I think this is not possible yet, but it’s something Asana has promised to make available. As usual, they don’t said when exactly, but maybe @Alexis can help with some news on this.

:slight_smile:

We’ve just moved over to Asana from Trello. List view works for us. Not a problem in which view we use.
As long as the checklist can be ticked off and the jobs are done, I’m not too fussed about which view we work in.

This is not currently possible. You can see some of the differences between Boards and Lists in this article: Boards vs. Lists (and why you should choose List if in doubt!)

I agree that this is an extremely important feature. It’s very difficult to accommodate different project management styles within a team without the ability to switch between Board and List Views. This is something that’s been coming up on the Asana forum for over a year, but I’m still not aware of any updates on this feature’s release.

My team is considering moving over to either Jira or ClickUp, as both of these platforms have more diverse viewing options.

Please keep us updated on when this feature is implemented in Asana!

This worked as a work-around for me:

Create a new project in board view. Multi-select all of the tasks within the project that you want to switch from List to Board. [Add to project] and select the new Board project you just created.

I don’t understand why Asana hasn’t considered implementing the ability to switch between List and Board Views. I find the structure of both views useful depending on the project I’m working on, but it would be so helpful if I could get a different visual perspective on my workflow simply by toggling between them. Ideally, a workaround shouldn’t be required.

Although the technical interface can be difficult to navigate, I do like the way Jira has this feature set up. My team really likes ClickUp as well (you can switch between three different views at any time).

I’d really like to keep working with Asana, but I’m tempted to move on if they don’t add a view-switching capability.

David, This seems like a good option. Does it work to add tasks from multiple projects?

I’m trying to juggle/manage all my tasks that cover a wide range from project work to new biz to company management. I was using Todoist and Kanbanist to get it all in a board with labels. Looking for a solution.

Echoing David’s point:

List to Boards Workaround: While in a project with a list view, multi-select a few tasks and multi-home them into a separate Boards project.

Boards to List Workaround: Create an “Advanced Search” for tasks that live within a specific Boards Project -> return your query in a list view -> multi-select those task and multi-home them into a List Project.

@Shir_Ekerling - this might be a potential option from @Bastien_Siebman


#11

Yes, we would!


#12

I agree here 100%!


#13

Need, need, NEED the ability to view Board Projects as a list.

I’ve seen this was on the interest list more than a year ago. Is there a timeline on this feature?


#14

Yes it is not comprehensibly why asana is not setting up this feature although it is an game changer in modern project management. Different needs need different visual accespoints. Other pm tools did implement this long time ago. eg getflow or teamworkproject or clickup, but unfortunately all those tools lacks in different other things, in which I really love asana. But the way asana is communicating this topic is absolutely not understandable. They say nothing more than “we hear you” since over a year, but if you hear us asana, please be es respectfull with our concerns and also tell us your thoughts to that topic. What does it mean you hear us? half a year, two year, never until releasing this Feature? and what are your thoughts to that topic? You tell us what is the vision for the next decade but say nothing to the steps in the near front. That is really a shame.
