Hi @Rod_Connors, welcome to the Asana Community Forum! Let’s see if we can solve this together!

As it stands, it’s currently not possible to import tags to your project using the CSV importer. We have an open request here: CSV importer: import tags.

I believe you are trying to import custom fields to the tasks that already exist in your project, can you please confirm if this is what you are trying to achieve?

In the meantime, you can find more information in this article.

Looking forward to your reply!

Hi Emily

R your question: “I believe you are trying to import custom fields to the tasks that already exist in your project”… No, that’s not what I was trying to achieve.

As I prefer working in Excel for large lists of tasks, I was testing an export, adding a few lines to it and importing it again.

Sorry to say but I’m not impressed. The request you mention has been open for almost three years. :frowning: I’ve posted on there now.

Regards
Rod
