To improve visibility into progress on project tasks and navigate the details of project plans, Asana has rolled out a new project List view. However, while the feature enhancement was supposed to make life easier for project managers, many users have commented that the “sections” functionality has changed, and as a result, has caused organizations a lot of grief.
The new List view introduced changes that let users do the following:
Other updates include:
However, Asana’s customers don’t seem to be excited about the changes. Numerous comments have been made around the effects on the “Sections” feature, following this change. “Sections” are no longer sharable between projects; this has left users with sections sitting idle, unable to be completed. Customers claim that task numbering is now isolated by section, which limits communication for a team that is handling a larger list of projects. Others are complaining about the pain of deleting “Sections,” which now requires that all sub-tasks be individually deleted before the entire section can be deleted.

A key function of project management is to feed the portfolio through clear and consistent reporting. This new functionality in Asana can be beneficial for organizing tasks at the project level, however, true success should be measured by how easily this information can help support decision making at the portfolio level. It is important with any type of reporting that maintainability is favored over granularity. While it might be tempting to get very granular with the time allocation and work assignments at the project level, remember to always balance the value with effort required to maintain the data.
