How to Filter Asana by Project

You can filter Asana by Project, with relative ease, but it takes a little bit of mastering if you’ve never used the tool’s Advanced Search feature before. You can then turn the report into a Portfolio, so you can check back for updates without having to start over.

You aren’t restricted to fetching the tasks in one Project, either: The filter can span as many Projects as you want, and can even filtered in additional ways — to only show tasks that are incomplete, or with a specific Custom Field, for example.

Filtering by Project is a useful way to view tasks from two or more related Projects in one place, drill down into one Project with additional filters, or create a custom view of a board that can be saved without changing the default view for all users.
