Bulk Add Tags to Project Templates?

Hi there, I am creating templates for our team. Is there a way to bulk select tasks & add tags to them when you are creating a template, before you apply it to a project? Maybe I am missing it but this would be super-helpful when creating large project templates with many moving parts.

Please add your vote with the purple button at the top of this thread.

Currently, you can’t do this when creating a project template from scratch, but I believe that if you start with a regular (non-template) project, add the tags for tasks there, then do Project actions menu > Save as template and I think that will persist them…I think!



Thank you, that doesn’t help me as we just started using Asana this year. I’ve been adding individual tags all day across project templates I created :sob: So time consuming! This would be a great feature, especially for teams just starting on Asana that will have recurring projects.

That doesn’t matter; @lpb’s suggestion is available to you. Just create a project from scratch where you would normally create a project template; add the tasks to the project, then multi-select them and add tags in bulk, which you can do in a regular project via multi-selection; then “Save as template”.

For a template you’ve already created, you could create a project from it, then follow the same steps above to tag in the project and then save it back as a template again. (The only caveat in this sequence is to be aware that when you create a project from the template, if the template has assignees in it, those tasks will get assigned to those people in the project even though they aren’t “real” tasks.)
