Practical use of brackets in task headlines

#1

When selecting multiple tasks o lines, Asana is no longer summing numbers put between brackets, [ ].

In our team we use this feature to measure priorities and time estimates based on f-scale [1,2,3,5,8] for every task/story.

Since last week we found that we have to sum and make our burndowns counting manualy item by item.

This is a major downgrade.
Is it possible to re-activate the sum feature for task headline numbers in brackets?.

Thank you.

Custom fields will help you achieve the end goal you’re looking for. :slight_smile: You can find details about how to use custom fields for this purpose here:

Our team uses the number add hack to total time estimates for tasks on a given day across projects. We don’t appear to be able to total custom fields across projects?
