The Future of Asana: Co-founder Justin Rosenstein shares our vision

This is absolutely amazing! I just watched the video and shared it with the team. As a business organized with Holacracy and GTD a la Springest, we were also excited by the circles structure presented too! … so when is this all available @Alexis ??? We’re dying here :smiley:


#3

Hi @Morgan! Love the enthusiasm :smiley: Timeline is available in Asana premium today!

This is very exciting! I can’t wait to share this with our team.


#8

This is a great step forward. Is there a way to show subtasks in the timeline? Seems like it should be intuitive, but the only way I see is manually assigning every subtask a project, which is both tedious and floods my project.

Any tips?


#9

Love this! So excited for the future.

Will we be able to see a timeline in “My Tasks” at some point as a personal timeline?


#10

Hi Spencer and Alex! So glad to hear your enthusiasm about Timeline and thanks for the feedback! We know that a lot of Asana customers love using subtasks and My Tasks and we’re glad you do too. As you can see, right now Timeline just shows a view of the tasks in your projects, not subtasks. We do have a team that will be updating and iterating on Timeline so I’ll make sure they get this feedback you’ve shared. :slight_smile:

Great stuff. Very excited to start using this feature.


#13

Stunning! There are so many people on my team who’ve been asking for this. Can’t wait to show them! :tada:


#14

Some type of “switch” Show completed tasks would be really great! Now timeline is filled with completed that no longer matter.


#15

Timeline is great! So clean and simple. It is hardly groundbreaking at this stage but is a great foundation and you can really see it align with the long term vision. Can’t wait to see the updates over the coming year! Well done team


#16

Subtasks don’t automatically inherit projects from their parent task. As a workaround here, you could add your subtasks to your project: https://asana.com/guide/help/tasks/subtasks#gl-subtask-project

Then they should show up on Timeline and your project calendar.


#17

This is awesome, really pleased to see timeline and it will help us plan out a project. One question I have though. The main need we have for this feature is planning out feature launch projects and we have 5 active launch campaigns in play that start with planning launch comms to preparing it to executing it after the feature is launched, so each project can span months — with tasks on each project shared by a small marketing team. If we look at each project in a vacuum, this is perfect but it doesn’t give us visibility on staff loading like say Instagantt does. Is there plans to bring timeline also as a tab in the “My Tasks” area or show timeline for a whole team? Or would you recommend we use the calendar view for adjusting for staff capacity?


#18

I just saw the future vision video for beyond timeline. Those features outlined are exactly what I’m looking for!


#19

I would LOVE to see a Timeline for Teams - where each project inside a team is represented on the timeline (a.k.a. as a task is to a project, so is a project to a team). This would great for the birds eye view of a timeline that spans multiple projects.


#20

Hi William,
At least with www.instagantt.com you can combine several projects into one.


#21

LOVE it. Any vision for easier setting and changing and remove dependencies? Same for dates. Both make you go into the tasks manually.


#22

I can’t make any subtasks show up in Timeline. Seems to me that functionality is not yet enabled for Timeline.
