CSV importer: import tags




It would be great to be able to import tags via CSV as well. Especially since the export function does export them, but the import doesn’t seem to be able to import them.



I absolutely agree…How can we get this on the dev team’s radar?


YES PLEASE!! A big “me too” for this feature request!


Has this been complete? Would love it!!


I would also love this!


Is there a possibility to import a list of tags (in excel or another file) to asana?
Best regards,


Hey @Kivanc_Koza, Michael from the Asana support team here

This is a great question though at the moment it isn’t possible. That said this doesn’t mean that it won’t be possible forever. That’s what our #productfeedback category is for. In fact, there is a post that someone has already made (CSV importer: import tags) to request our team to build this feature out.

I’m going to merge this request into that thread (:point_up:see above! :point_up:) to have your voice heard, though i encourage you to click the vote button above to make it count!

Hope this helps :slight_smile:


Did this ever get done? This would be awesome.


I’m just starting to use the CSV importer, has anyone figured out a workaround to import tags via CSV?


Hi! If there is not a way to currently import tags, is there a way to mass edit so I can add them after they’ve been uploaded?


Hi @Kristen_Park1,

Yes, you can do that. If all of the tasks you need to tag are in the same project, go to that project; multi-select all of the tasks to tag; then in the right-hand detail pane, select Tags from the … menu and you can tag all selected tasks at once.

If they’re not in the same project, you can use Advanced Search to pull up a list of them by some criteria, then multi-select and tag same as above.


Thanks! I worked around it by creating a custom field instead, but good to know!


That works, too!

And you could easily switch back to using the tag if you wanted, by using the Advanced Search technique to find all tasks with a particular value in your custom field, and then tagging all of them at once.
