How to Filter for Tasks Assigned by Me (or Current User, or Any User)

I'm looking for a way to filter for Tasks that were "assigned by" a user (me, current user, etc.). Not Authored by, which is unhelpful since we use project templates/blueprints and everything gets authored by whomever duplicated the template.

Use Case: I need to create a dashboard that runs at a project container folder for each delivery lead to see only the tasks that a) are assigned to them and b) tasks that they've assigned to others across a number of projects.

This has been a feature in Asana, even in the base (free) version for as long as I can remember.

Hey Mike, thanks for reaching out 🙂

I'd suggest using Custom Fields for this - you can add a new "Assigned by" field and then create Dashboard widgets using the filter to include certain tasks that were assigned by a particular person. 

Please let me know what you think 🙌

This is not a great solution. It is a basic need. I can't ask all of my users to jump through these hoops for a basic need.

@Christopher Hey, thanks for adding your comment 🙂

Currently Wrike does not provide functionality to filter by the users who assigned work. However, it could be a great suggestion for our Product Feedback section. 

@Mike, I can go ahead and move this thread to Product Feedback. Please let me know what you think.

Hi Kara Halleran, welcome to the Community! 

I've checked with the team again, and for now, they don't have it in their short-term roadmap. Could you please upvote the original suggestion by Mike if you haven't already? The number of votes really helps the team understand the popularity of suggestions here.
