TL:DR - How do you add sections and milestones using a CSV to import tasks into an extant project?
We’re trying to implement a google forms > asana workflow.
One obstacle we are coming up against is Zapier’s inability to create a new project from a template using the Asana API.
So we are exploring the idea of using the google form + zapier to not only generate a new project but to generate a CSV with the “template” task, sections and milestones which we can then import into the new project - ensuring consistency of project formats.
The issue I am having is that, in Asana, tasks imported from CSV cannot be designated as “sections” or “milestones”. Every line comes out as a simple task.
Previously, adding “:” to the end of the task name would import it as a section, but since sections became distinct task list objects, this no longer appears to work.
Any clues on how we might best move forward?
