Add Project Name to Task in CSV Import

I have private projects where I assign specifics tasks to specific people. They don’t necessarily need to see the other tasks in the project. This is specifically for on boarding new staff. I want to be able to add the project name (which is the new hire’s name) to the task automatically either at import or from the csv file or some other way where I’m not having to do it manually. Is there a way to do this?

If you are importing using a CSV, can’t you do it yourself inside Excel? Unless you use the API, I don’t see any solution…

Hi @Stephen_Fitzgerald,

Before you can start importing your CSV you will need to create a new project for the new person you’re onboarding; at this stage you will be required to give this project a title. So technically it wouldn’t help adding it with the CSV. But I’m curious, would template not be easier to manage your onboarding projects for new hire? You can learn more about it in: https://asana.com/guide/examples/hr/onboarding

Hope this helps, but let me know if you have any follow-up questions!
