'Project Name' not showing for Subtasks in 'My Tasks'

The ‘Project Name’ does not show for Subtasks in the ‘My Tasks’ page. For other Tasks in the list it is displayed as expected, it is just Subtasks.

Steps to reproduce: The ‘My Tasks’ view displays this problem all of the time

Browser version: Google Chrome Version 78.0.3904.97

This is not a bug in Asana’s eyes…it is the intended behavior. Subtasks do NOT inherit the Project of their parent Task. You can assign a Subtask to a project (that of its Parent or any other one, it’s up to you), and it has to be done indivdually and repeatedly. This takes 100% of new users by surprise and has generated lots of complaints.


Thanks Stephanie for clarification of that one. I appreciate the quick response.

It would be really helpful if subtasks DID inherit the project of the parent!

I tried adding the project to the subtask but now that subtask is showing up in the project twice. It would just be so helpful for that to not be the case.
