Duplicate Sub-tasks?

Why are sub-tasks duplicated in List view outside of their parent tasks and can you hide these by default? What am I doing wrong?

Hey @Justine_Wyness welcome to the Asana Community Forum!

Did you add the subtask to the project as well? As that would explain why the subtask shows twice.

Here is a detailed explanation about this behaviour: How did this happen? subtasks duplicated as parent tasks in same project - #2 by Phil_Seeman

Thanks for coming back to me! Yes they started as main tasks then we found we had too much detail so rolled them under parent tasks instead - is there any way of de-duping them in bulk? I’ll read the link!

If you want to remove the subtasks from showing in the main board twice you can bulk-edit them with multi-select: Ways to save time in Asana | Product guide • Asana Product Guide is that what you mean?

Yes! I hadn’t made that work yet - I was able to multi-select but they weren’t dragging and dropping. You’re my favourite person today! Thank you for making a difference :slight_smile: Have an extra biscuit!
