Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing:
When exporting a portfolio in CSV format, line breaks are incorrectly added in the CSV file for the custom fields ie. any line break in the Asana field is creating a line break (LF) also in the CSV. This behavior is not correct, and it’s not happening in case of any line break of Asana standard fields.
When importing the CSV in Excel through Text to Columns, the content of the custom field is split in more lines in case of any line break in a free text custom field. This is not happening in case a line break is added to a standard field like eg Project Description, and that should be the correct behavior.
Steps to reproduce:
- Open the Portfolio in Asana
- Actions Menu > Export > CSV
- Open the CSV with Notepad++ and enable the option to see all Characters
- You can see the difference in the screenshots below.
Google Chrome Version 85.0.4183.121 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Upload screenshots below:
LF at the end of the row - correct behavior
LF after a line break in the custom field - incorrect behavior
No LF after a line break in the standard field, but a space - correct behavior
