Maybe the default of making the creator a collaborator everywhere is useful to some people, but it’s extremely inconvenient for me. So I’d argue either that the default be reversed, or that an option is introduced
Currently, even if nobody is a collaborator on the subtasks of the template itself, if you go “Add new” → (your template), the newly created task puts you as a collaborator on the task and on every last subtask in the hierarchy. This leaves me with two options:
- Receiving way too many notifications about these subtasks once I pass the task to someone else; flooded like this, notifications become ineffective, and I miss things there that actually are important.
- I have to spend 15 minutes (per task!) clicking through the depths of the hierarchy to click “Leave task” on every subtask and sub-subtask. (Who’s going to pay for my carpel tunnel surgery? LOL)
Obviously neither of these is ideal. So either an option when you’re first creating the task, or, even better, a context menu feature to “leave this task AND ALL SUBTASKS” would make me much more productive with Asana. Without a solution like this, Asana instead becomes a distraction and a time sink, which is definitely not where I’d like to leave it!
Thanks for your time and consideration.
