Add an action to Rules to "Duplicate task"

Hello -

I would like to create a rule that duplicates a task and moves that duplicate task to another project.

Is this possible?

Hello @Ben_Lipper welcome to the Asana forum.
At this time there is no such rule.

Hi @Ben_Lipper, welcome to the Asana Community Forum :wave:t2:

Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback! As mentioned by @Charlie_Pilch, this Rule is not currently available in Asana.

I’m moving your thread to the #productfeedback category to give you and other Community members an option to vote for this feature! :slight_smile:

I’ll loop back in with you on this thread should our Product team make any updates here!

@Ben_Lipper You can also look at Flowsana as a possible solution:

Thanks for the mention @Paul_Grobler .

Flowsana’s rules can move or add a task to another project. Alas there is no capability for duplicating a task. This request has come up a couple of times in the past few weeks, though - @Ben_Lipper can I ask what your specific use case is, to help me evaluate if it it’s something I might want to add to Flowsana?

When designing some rules in my projects, I miss the possibility to automate the creation of new task by duplication of existing. Use case for example is when a Task arrives in a section as trigger, I would like this tasks to be duplicated and then assigned to new assignee. Right now I need to duplicate a full list of tasks, then add them to a section on which the automation will then run accordingly (duplicated tasks moved to different sections and assigned to different assignees). Really a shame the duplication is not available as action this would allow for more end-to-end automation. The use case described is particularly useful when launching a UAT campaign comprised of multiple Runs of test and for which the task is a test scenario.

Hi @Mauro_Portela, thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us! As it stands, it’s not possible to duplicate a tasks using Rules. I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with the main thread to centralize feedback: Add an action to Rules to "Duplicate task".
