Accidentally adding tasks just by clicking blank spaces


Certainly not! I am using blank tasks as a separator, that would make me very upset :slight_smile:


@Bastien_Siebman Certainly you can add a space or assign the blank task to yourself to make it stick. That’s so much better than forcing this frustrating behavior on the rest of us. We hate having to delete these accidentally created blank tasks manually through a lengthy delete process.

PS: you may want to look at “Sections” feature.


I know about Sections but usually add an extra blank line before any section, it feels too cluttered otherwise. This is the kind of good practice that needs to be decided inside teams :+1:


+1. Please implement.


Hi guys, just merging this thread with Accidentally adding tasks just by clicking blank spaces as they are very similar!


@Marie any plans from Asana to address these empty task problem?


Hi @vridaw and thanks for the mention! I don’t believe this is in plan for the coming weeks, but I’ll make sure to keep you posted as soon as I have an update!

New to Asana: Is it worth it and being actively developed?

Logging in to add another data point to this request. By far the most frustrating feature I’ve come across. Currently evaluating Asana for use in our office and I can’t deploy it with this feature/bug the way it is. Too many empty tasks, ends up clogging up the project.


Same issue here, would like to see this fixed!


It has been a while since I posted on this, over a year ago. Still a user, but this issue and unconventional nature of keyboard shortcuts in general has hampered my ability to increase adoption and use of Asana across my organization. Wish I could vote again on this suggested modification. You lose a lot of business because of it.


This one is the most annoying to me, I’m looking to see if there is a way to disable this “feature”.
