Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing: Tasks without any changes to the task or any updates. Ex: task shows no activity since 27 Nov 2023 but has a last modified date of 15 Dec 2023
Steps to reproduce: Not sure - this is inconsistent.
What version of Asana are you using (Basic/Premium/Business/Enterprise)? Business
Is that really the case? That would mean that “Last Modified” is absolutely useless.
Last modified should only change based on an activity. The fact that it has a due date for today should not trigger the Last Modified attribute.
As a PM I want to validate when task have been processed.
To be honest I only noticed today that indeed tasks with a due date of today were set to “last modified” today although no changes were made. I agree this is a bit weird.
And I did have another task where a comment was added to a subtask but it did trigger the “last modified” date of the main task.
I have also found this task with a discussion about what normally impacts the “last modified” and the due date is not mentioned there
A bit weird indeed to be honest. I will do some more testing with tasks.
I would recommend creating a post in the Report a Bug forum section, something like “Last Modified date changes when there have been no changes to a task” and provide the specifics. I suspect it’s not a bug but that’s the best way for Asana to check on it and report back.
