I'd like to see all my comments by date and time


#1

I tend to fly from one thing to another throughout the day and always circle back around to my main project. Often someone @mentions me in a task they’re working on or in a conversation. My replies are often detailed and take significant time to verify I’m correct, give useful advice, etc. My point is I often have comments that took me time to make and when I go back to my project I often forget what I helped someone else with. This especially comes up when I’m trying to report on what I’ve done to my team or boss.

I’ve found a way to kind of do what I want by creating a custom report so I’ll list it hear if others find it useful:

  1. Went to Search->Advanced Search
  2. Left the default search option of “All”
  3. Added my name to “commented on by” field
  4. Saved the search

The problem with this is it’s still a lot of work to go back through the results and constantly scroll to the bottom of each task in the right hand pane to see the comment. Has someone else made something (maybe an API thing) or found something that allows you to see or extract something that lists:

  • Task Name
  • Date/Time
  • Comment

I’ve been searching for awhile now and unfortunately haven’t found anything.

Thanks,
Ryan


Dropping the ball in task conversations

I’m wondering if I should post the second part of my post above to the Developers & API topic area. I’m passing familiar with the use of these APIs, but would probably some pointers. @Alexis, would that be the proper way to get more info if there’s no way to do this in Asana proper? Is there a way to cross post to categories?

Thanks!

Hey Ryan! Let’s start by putting this in the Developers category and see what folks say :slight_smile: We can adjust from there if needed.
