Forms - How do they work for Project Requests?

This is what I would like to do and cannot seem to find an answer:

  1. Project Requester submits form
  2. I see project request
  3. I create the project (or is it automatically created?)

From what I can tell, I have to create the project before the form is submitted? Please help!

Hi @Angi_Moore and welcome to the forum. This a great question. The individual projects are NOT created automatically via a form submission. Since forms are part of every Asana project, when someone fills out your form, it will only show up as a new task in the project it is connected to. https://asana.com/guide/help/premium/forms

If your intention is to create a new project, based on you approving a project request (via a form), I would simply create a project called “New Project Request Submissions”. Then in this project, create a form which will be linked to just this project. Then every submission of the form will be populated back into this project as a task.

You can then review and decide on next steps. If you want to proceed with opening a new project, I would recommend to either (1) convert the task submission to a project https://asana.com/guide/help/tasks/actions#gl-convert-to-project or (2) use a template to open up a new project and link the form submission back to the new project https://asana.com/guide/team/advanced/connect-your-work#gl-tasks-multiple-projects

Hope this helps!

Also Zapier could easily be used to achieve what you need I believe.
