How to turn a Task into a Section

Hi! Recently, the colon (:slight_smile: keyboard shortcut was removed. This previously turned a task into a section by having the end of the task end in a colon (:).

Now, how can I turn a task into a section?

Hi @Chaz, unfortunately I do not think this an option any longer since they got rid of the colon-to-section functionality.

I think I recall seeing somewhere that it might be added back at some point via an update to the UI.

There is a Chrome extension that allows you to do that.


Hi @Chaz and welcome to the Forum!

As @Ben_Brenner mentioned, there is no longer possible to turn a Task into a section adding a semi-colon. This is due to some updates and adjusts Asana had to make to implement new features. (You can read more about it in this post: "Tab+N" our new shortcut to create Sections)

With that said, the extension @Bastien_Siebman mentioned should allow you to do it.

I hope this helps!


Thanks @Natalia

Is this a feature that is coming back? I miss it like the moon misses the sun.
