Hello,

I’m trying to import a CSV with 100 tasks (JIRA Tickets)
When I import a new file, with the same data all the tasks are duplicated.

Is there any way that the tasks are not duplicated and are updated instead when a new CSV import is done?

Thanks,

Welcome, @Jimmy_Irwin,

I’m afraid this is not possible currently, but I’ve moved your post to a thread about this and you can vote to request this at the top of the thread.

@lpb can’t find this to vote it up.

Welcome, @Laurean_Callander ,

Click the title “Import to update existing tasks” in the top bar, or just scroll to the top, then click the purple “Vote” button there.

Still not here? I can’t believe Asana can’t do this. I have about 500 tasks and I need to import an email address into the task. Now I have to do them all manually?

Upvote. Quite disappointing to see this almost 5 year old “idea” not implemented yet. I think in current time with all technologies and tools available, this is not even a feature, but a standard. How difficult can it be to implement? Each task has a unique identifier. If a CSV is imported with same identifiers, just create an option within the importer tool to replace updated fields of the task…

Not really interesting is it! This should be a basic feature - jira allows you to do it, so does Monday.

Upvoted. Almost 5 full years later and still no update?

This feature is a must. I am new to Asana and I am glad I double-checked whether it had this functionality before creating a mess of duplicates. Also, a very simple import feature to implement if task ID is used as a reference (someone posted that earlier and I thought the same). Really no reason not to add it after all this customer feedback requesting it :face_with_open_eyes_and_hand_over_mouth:

Definitely just created a whole mess of duplicates and mess up a ton of data! Why is this not a thing!!? I think this is another vote for our company to move to a different platform unfortunately. Asana keeps adding the nails and I keep fighting for them, but they give me no bones. :frowning:
