Hi, I manage a lot of clients using Asana and things pop up all the time that can be effectively done at the same time as another task, so I am looking for the ability to merge tasks to automatically create subtasks.
EXAMPLE: making a task to follow up with a client about “x” but then someone on another team also assigns a task to me saying they need “y” and “z” info, so now I wish I could merge both task so I remember to just send one email to the client to follow up on everything I need at once.
SOLUTION! Rather than copy and pasting all the details of the task to create a subtask to a parent task, I would LOVE if there was a way to drag, hover, and merge a task to another task so that it would automatically become a subtask to the parent task I am dragging it to.
Additional Situational Benefits:
-There are situations where I am working on repetitive tasks and while I am refining the workflow to make a template I realize that another task should actually be a subtask because it needs to be done at the same time but I have to be sure to carefully copy all the details to a new subtask which can lead to errors.
-This would also make it a million times easier to just be able to create tasks mindlessly while taking notes during a meeting then be able to go back and just drag and merge tasks that need to become subtasks. (Feels rude to be talking to a client and have to be like, “wait hold on, let me organize my tasks!”)
-It would also be incredible if this feature worked across projects so that I could easily use my email extension to make a private task with the email info, but then be able to copy the task, delete the sensitive info, and then be able to add that same task as a subtask in another project.
I really really really would love this feature, thanks!
