How do I get a project to automatically assign all tasks to one person

Hi there, I have a project that only one person works on, and I would like each task created within this project to be automatically assigned to the one person working on it. This way she gets notifications when she is late on when something is due. I am so tired fo clicking on the assigned to tab. Its a waste of time for me and I usually forget to do it. It’s also a waste fo time to for me to mass assign tasks because that still requires me to take the time to do something. I don’t have any spare seconds in my life. I often assign her things when it pops into my mind, which means I am inputting it quickly on my cell phone randomly throughout the day.

@Vanessa_Valiente: Dependent on which view you use on the mobile app either the person or the project is preselected. However not both at the same time.

Hope this helps,

Hi @Vanessa_Valiente,

FYI while not possible to do automatically in Asana itself, this is easy to accomplish via an If-Then Rule in my Flowsana integration:

@Vanessa_Valiente are you using a template project to create this project regularly? If so does assigning the task in the template project help? That way you only need to do it once.

No, it s project of tasks specifically for my personal assistant, so it changes all the time, but this is always her to-do list, thank you though!

Hi there! You and a person named Hannes helped me set this up before. Can I get that help again? I would like: My To Do List to be automatically assigned to me. Please let me know, thank you!!

@Vanessa_Valiente: Feel free to ping us in the previous direct mail chat so Hannes will be involved as well. I’m not sure if I got your point excactly but Hannes might know more about it.

I tried to do that, but it wouldn’t let me. Here is my request again: Hi there, I have a project that only one person works on, and I would like each task created within this project to be automatically assigned to the one person working on it.

I often assign her things when it pops into my mind, which means I am inputting it quickly on my cell phone randomly throughout the day. Last time I need this, you guys had someone get into my account and tweaked it somehow. Thank you!

@Vanessa_Valiente: Please feel free to DM me so I can involve Hannes.

Was this ever resolved? Looks like the discussion went offline. I’d also like to do this and can’t find the solution.

@Megan_Hochstrasser,

Since this post was first made, Asana came out with Rules. If you have the Business plan, you define a simple rule that when a new task is added to the project, assign it to a particular person.

Also, @Phil_Seeman provided a solution using his Flowsana above:

Hope that helps,

Larry

it looks like the rule for assigning all things to one person is a business only feature?

Yes, @Sean_Kosofsky:

See the rest of the prior post for another alternative.
