💡 How to have a section template

:gift: Do you wish there were “section templates” in Asana?

:muscle: Well, me too, but it isn’t a thing yet. Let’s find a workaround, shall we?

:bulb: The idea is to use task templates to mimic a section template. Let’s say you wanted to templatize a section with 3 tasks: T1, T2, T3. You then create a task template with 3 subtasks (T1, T2, T3).

:computer: Whenever you want to create a new section from a template, go through the following:

  • create an empty section
  • use the task template to create a task
  • open the task, multi-select the subtasks, drag-and-drop them into the section
  • delete the original task

:sweat_smile: This is not that far from a section template is it? What do you think about this workaround?

:fr: Version Française


I say it works for now and I will be using that method. Hopefully, we can see some sort of update to sections soon, as they are underutilized in my opinion.
