Creating a chart using Asana time tracking data

To create a chart using time tracking data, start by clicking Add new chart in the Charts tab. Select the data sources for the chart. If any of those data sources contain the Actual time field, it can be selected in the Unit menu:

When Actual time is selected as the Unit, the Metric menu contains only one option: Total (sum of Actual time). Here’s an example configuration of a line chart that shows the total amount of hours logged over time:

The Date range refers to when the hours were logged. Here’s the resulting chart:

You can create charts from your top-level tasks, subtasks, or both. You can choose between these options by setting a filter (use the filter Item type).

Grouping and filtering by time logged by

When Actual time is selected as a unit, a special metric called Time logged by allows grouping and filtering based on who logged the hours. Here’s an example chart configuration showing the total amount of hours logged per individual:

And here’s the resulting chart:

You can also filter the chart based on this property. In the filter window, you can find the Time logged by (Actual time) option.

When you select individuals, the chart is filtered accordingly.

Time logged by individual by task

That allows you to see how much time each team member logged for each item:

The numbers are summed so that you can see each team member's total time logged so far.
