I tried to move a set of complete subtasks but they disappeared

I tried to move a set of complete subtasks out of their parent task but they are no longer showing up. I wanted to compile all of them under a separate parent marking them as complete. Do I have to find them manually now or is there an easier way to collect them?

Hello @Khwaja_Ahmed welcome to the Asana Community Forum :wave:

Have you tried using advanced search already? You can filter to find tasks, subtasks and a lot more such as locating tasks that have been marked complete recently, tasks that have a specific assignee etc

More info here: Using search & advanced search in Asana | Product guide • Asana Product Guide


If you dropped them into a project that only shows Incomplete tasks, that’s normal, you should change the filter options at the top of the project.


Yes, I have! That’s helped in locating them but what I was hoping for was is seen in this screenshot. (I collected some of the tasks from the complete section and put them in)

Thank you for the insight! The thing is, the previous parent task kept all the

completed subtasks in it. I was able to add a few of them back using the search feature.
