Create task in User Task List (My Tasks)


I’m new to the Asana API and I’m wondering how I can POST a new task to my user task list (My Tasks section in the dashboard). I have tried a POST request without the workspace property, however when I do this I get the following error message:

You should specify one of workspace, parent, projects

Can you let me know which of these I should be specifying to create the task within my task list?

Hi @James_Pell,

First of all, welcome to the Asana Community Forum! This is a great space to ask and answer questions.

I am not familiar with API, but I have provided a link to the Asana Developers page that takes you step by step through the different functionalities of API. I hope this helps!

Thanks, after further testing. I have found that you only need to provide your workspace gid to the workspace property for this to work. The task is then automatically added to “My tasks”.


Awesome, glad to help and that you were able to figure it out!
