Issue when Running Rule with recurring task

I have a task that has a yearly recurring due date. I setup a rule to move a completed task to my completed category. When I did this the task that gets created for the next year gets moved (not marked completed) to the completed column as well

Hi @Keith_Schuster and thanks for creating this separate thread. We received a couple of similar reports over the last few days and our Team is looking into what they can do to fix this. I don’t have yet an ETA for resolution, but I’m following this task and will make sure to keep you posted as soon as I have an update! Thanks again for taking the time to report this in the Forum!


Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing:

I use the default automation to move completed tasks to a new column. The task I’m moving is a recurring task. I appears Asana copies the completed task to create the new task automatically for recurrence. The issue is that the automation action happens first. So, when I complete a recurring task in Column1, that completed task gets moved to Column2, then the new task gets created in Column2 when I should be created on Column1.

Steps to reproduce:
Create a recurring tasks.
Set the automation to move it form one board column to another on completion.
Complete the task and see where the new task is created.
