I absolutely LOVE seeing ALL of my template project tasks, right there alongside my ACTUAL tasks!
…said no one, ever.
It’s as though the dev and/or marketing teams wanted to “say” templates existed, without investing the time needed to create a separate template library and/or other features already mentioned. Without that, this is merely an ability to clone existing open projects - not a “template.”
Asana should call it what it really is, or put the work into making it what you call it… because, in it’s current context, the word template is a blatant misrepresentation.
This aside, my company is a paying org and we love how easy it is to navigate the system. The simplicity is great and is helping in a lot of ways vs tasking in our primary CRM… until we run into issues like this.
Please complete the project you started, soon. Until then, I am forced to delete the template I just created and tell my staff that usable, functioning templates don’t ACTUALLY exist in Asana.
