Duplicate Tasks on Android App

Sometimes, when using the Asana app for Android, a duplicate task is created.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Phone should be using a lossy cellular connection
  2. Launch the Asana app
  3. Log in to the Asana app
  4. Select a project
  5. Create a task
  6. Duplicate task is created

Browser version:

  • Pixel 6 Pro
  • Android App 6.94.4 (6940400)

Suggested solution:

Each task should be created with a unique id, and that unique id should be used to confirm the creation of the task rather than retransmitting a request on a lossy connection. Only user input should be able to add an API call to the outgoing request queue and not from a retry process. The outgoing API call should not be cleared until it is confirmed. The API service should ensure that a duplicate ID is not allowed.
