Old Project

I have a project that we were using Asana heavily on back in 2018. The project got put on hold, but it is going to start back up later this year or early next year. I want to make sure that I don’t lose all the data currently in Asana tasks, etc. for this project. Is there a time limit or any risk that the project information will disappear if not used for 2-3 years?

Note: I’m not using Asana for any other projects right now, so my whole account is effectively not being used until this project starts back up.

Is there a way to back up the task list, etc. to my hard drive in case you do remove it or go out of business or whatever?

Welcome to the Forum @Jack_West and thank you for reaching out!

That is a great question! There isn’t a time limit or expiration date for tasks or Projects in Asana so unless you manually delete the information, it will remain in Asana. If you need to put Projects on hold you can always archived them following these steps: Archive a project. You can unarchive them at any time.

Regarding the back up question, you can always export your project data to JVS or CSV format. You can check the following guide article for more information: https://asana.com/guide/help/faq/security

Please let me know if you have any follow-up question Jack! Have a great week!

Thanks. I exported a csv backup. However it seems like it only exported the names of the tasks, not all the comments associated with each task. I want a backup of everything, not just the names of the tasks. Is that possible?
