Tasks should also auto-populate the “Today”, “Upcomming”, or “Later” fields based on date range. If I add a new item today that’s has a due date of today, why do I have to go find it in the list of new tasks and manually mark it as today twice? Also, any past items created that might have gotten buried and haven’t been manually moved to the “Today” section can easily go unnoticed unless you cross examine your tasks from multiple views a day. It takes the ease out of just opening Asana and having what I need to do today in front of me. I shouldn’t have to go searching to make sure things line up.
Similarly, “Upcoming” should have options to automatically include things due within the next week or user defined. “Later” should have an option to automatically include all items over a week out, or user defined. If these options were chosen, then “New Tasks” would contain items with no due dates assigned.
Items manually moved out of any auto-populated category, such as moving an item automatically placed in “Today” to “Tomorrow” would override the auto-populate.
