recurring task won't duplicate external data

When a task is set as recurring in asana.com, on completion it is duplicated with a new due date. Name, description and tags are duplicated. But external data is not duplicated.

In an integration I use task’s external data to link it to a resource on my app.

What would be the best solution to keep this link on recurring tasks? Is there a way for external data to be duplicated? O should I plug into some hook and do it myself?

You could have external data stored on a task inside a Knowledge base project, and have the recurring task @-mention the knowledge task in the Notes… :thinking: would that work for you?

Mmmm. Its a possibility.

I’d rather manage it in a less dirty way for users so they don’t need an additional project just for the sync.
