I tried to find answers in various threads but am still puzzled and unclear about the current status or how to get it done.
I am trying to import tasks from a csv file to a project template with pre-defined sections and custom fields. RESULT: all tasks get mapped to the first section, despite the value entered in the column “Section” in my csv file.
Steps to reproduce:
Create Project from custom Template
Export csv file from project and add/map tasks to relevant fields / columns in “csv ex/import template”
Import tasks from CSV mapped to custom fields and columns existing in project template
Browser version: Google Chrome Version 80.0.3987.149

Alternatively and following advice in https://blog.asana.com/2018/01/import-csv-asana-projects/
I created an empty project and imported sections as rows which kind of works, BUT since the project isn’t created from a template the fields do not get mapped to already existing custom fields and in the import preview I do not get the custom fields suggested for mapping.
Thanks a lot for your support. I sincerely hope there is a solution to this, since I saw it mentioned across so many threads but am unsure about current state.
