Adding multiple Collaborators to Tasks at the same time

As someone has suggested: if you have premium or business features then you can set up a dummy project with a rule to add certain collaborators when task is added to the project. Then you can simply multi-home any task to the dummy project :smiley:

Any updates on this?

This is sad, I am constantly trying to get my group to move away from Asana for this main reason. Slack practically gives me all the features I actually need and the fact that this has not been added after years of it being asked is an embarrassment to a “project management/organizing” company. Not even sure how the company is still in business.

Does that feel harsh, proof me wrong, I would love it

Hi @Sara, we really need this feature. Is there something new in development?
Thank you

Any updates on this? We have up to 100 people that might need to be added to a task for an update at any given time. This is a critical feature. I see that @Finn_Stenberg provided an interesting work around but it requires manual updating of a rule when people leave a team. That doesn’t work at scale. Any help would be appreciated Asana :slight_smile:

We have dealt with this by making a task that mentions each group’s names so we can copy and paste them into the description or a comment to add them to a task. We’ve used a keyword (#addteam) for search to get to the task quickly.

It’s not perfect but it’s better than doing it the long way. I’m really hoping Asana comes up with some solutions for this.

I have been receiving this feedbacks from our clients as well!
Wish we could add collaborators by groups.

It would make life easier and let us work smarter

Can I add multiple users at one to folower of task?

Hi,
Not for the moment, another similar topic already exists and you can vote for this feature here:

This doesn’t exist quite yet, but is on our roadmap!

I’d like to have the feature- since 2018

I agree with the need for this feature. After 5 years of requests, it seems like it is either technically challenging or is considered to be a very low priority that keeps slipping. (Four years ago we were told “This doesn’t exist quite yet, but is on our roadmap!”

This is a big negative CX issue for anyone who uses comments to collaborators frequently. Every time I use Asana and want to cc others on a comment tied to a task, I have to add them one by one. The simple solution is having user-defined groups, a la Gmail. Without that, every time I use Asana I am struck by how painful this process is.

Chiming in here, wishing this existed as our team grows yearly. :slight_smile:

New to Asana here. I came to this forum looking for how to find this feature and am surprised that it was first raised in 2017 with no movement toward a relatively simple coding fix to make it happen. Hoping this isn’t the normal speed for the implementation of requested features. I’m starting small with just a team of four, but I can’t imagine not having this feature and trying to use Asana well with our larger group of eight let alone the size of groups mentioned in this thread. I hope it happens soon!

Hi all :wave:

At iDO (with help from Astogi) we created this tool that might help solving the issue.

Just add this bot to your projects and it will add multiple collaborators at once. No new apps or integrations needed. Everything inside Asana.

Give it a try for free, check the info here: Team Alias | iDO | Asana Solutions Partner

The beta version is free to use under a fair use policy

Good luck to everyone :wink:
