Multi-home tasks in multiple sections of the same project

I have multiple teams working on a single project. Each team has an Asana section that manages their tasks. at a certain point, both teams will have combined tasks. I’d like to put those tasks in both sections.

There’s a mechanical engineering team (section 1) installing multiple physical machines (each with it’s own completion tasks), a computer engineering team(section 2) developing the overall and individual control systems (each with it’s own completion tasks). When both are done, they will work together to test and commission the new machine (these tasks need to be in both sections).

Is there a way to make this happen with Asana?

Welcome, @Josh_Levin1,

I’m afraid this isn’t possible in Asana. I’ve merged your thread into a request for this. Please scroll to the top and vote with the purple button.

A possible workaround for you: Add a subtask and multi-home it into the second team’s section. A click in that task’s header can easily navigate up to the parent task.

See this thread for other workarounds.

Hi @Josh_Levin1 a lot of my previous clients would have an intake project for each team and the task can then be multihomed into each teams project as opposed to sections.

Hello! Adding my vote to this.

Here’s my scenario - we have goals that leadership is accountable for in a top section of our quarterly planning project. Some of those tasks are owned by departments in following sections of the same project. I have an assignee (responsible) and a column for accountable (leadership). I’d love for those tasks to live in both places so that visually, we can see them as leadership level but also within that department’s scope of work for the quarter.

Custom sort options aren’t realistic unfortunately, as the team has expressed the need for visual separation via sections. I’ve tried some sorting / filtering but haven’t figured out a good way to keep separation if anyone does have ideas!

I’d also like to multi home subtasks for the same reason - was hoping I could use that as a workaround by just typing the main task twice and multi-homing the subtasks to each, but it seems they switch back and forth between the two tasks, whether I add to project then convert to subtask, or if I just convert the subtask to a subtask.

Any advice appreciated! Though it does seem that multi homing a task within different sections of the same project is the ideal scenario here :slight_smile:
