Custom field data lost when converted to a project



Custom field data is lost when the task is converted to a project. Is there a way to keep the custom field data? What is the point of the converting to a project feature if this is the case?

The workaround was entering the custom field data twice, but that is really inefficient. Is this already in the works on Asana’s end or is this something we need to vote on? If so, please vote.


Hi Sabrina,
Just wanted to find out if anyone reached out to you with a solution… Was your workaround to create a new project with same custom fields, then copy/ paste series of tasks to new project? Is that how you worked through your issue?
