Using Categories


#1

I am trying to use categories for planning events. Is there a way to view all the items within a category only? Either to input all items in a category at once, review and check total budget? Thanks

Hi @Yukiko_Meadows — I’d recommend using Custom Fields (https://asana.com/guide/help/premium/custom-fields) if you’re on Asana Premium or Tags (https://asana.com/guide/help/tasks/fields#sts=Tags) if you’re on the free version of Asana.

Both options are useful for categorizing and color-coding tasks, though I think Custom Fields may bring more structure to an entire list of tasks rather than one-off task labels via Tags.

You can focus on just the tasks with a certain Field or Tag via Advanced Search (https://asana.com/guide/help/fundamentals/search).
