Hi @Gabriela_Higa You can still create sections when importing, please refer to the first Section (“Before you get started: tips to organize the data in your spreadsheet”) of this guide article: https://asana.com/guide/help/api/csv-importer

@Leticia_Ghisio, here is how to import Subtasks: https://asana.com/guide/help/api/csv-importer#gl-subtasks as long a you associate them to the correct task, they should automatically be populated in the Correct Section.

If you continue running into trouble, please reach out to our Support team with screenshots of what you’re seeing, and if possible share your CSB file, that will help them reproduce your issue and help you find a solution.

Hope this helps!

Hi all, since dependencies and subtasks are now available when importing a CSV in Asana, I’ve slightly edited the title of this thread. Thank you all for your support!

Thanks @Marie but before the subtask where on horizontal way, and it was better to order and visualize the list.

Now the subtasks are on a column and everything gets almost the same.

I used to export to to reunions descriptions, on this way it gets everything confused…

Is there a way to get the same visualization as before? (pleeeeeeeeaaasssseeeee) :slight_smile:

Any update on the dependency CSV export ?

Hi @Marie - can you specify if the dependencies were added to the export module? If not, can we expect that soon? Thanks.

Jus tried to export out a plan to import into another plan and this still doesn’t exist unfortunately. I see sections are now but no dependencies. Unfortunate.

Now the question is : “WHEN can the feature be implemented ?”
If one can’t import or export the dependancies, then the product is simply useless.
ANY DATE with the CSV import and export for dependancies implemented ?

I exported my project into a .csv file but only to notice that some important fields I needed were missing - example: there was no dependencies field there which I need to check which task is being blocked and by which task.
Any leads on how to include dependencies in the .csv file would be really helpful.
