Hi - I am wondering if when creating a task, before closing Asana can prompt the user to tag someone? Thanks!
You mean force the user to assign someone? No, but with Rules you can automate one.
Welcome to the Forum @Wesley_Gross and thank you for reaching out?
From what I understand you are wondering if it is possible to make the assignee or collaborator a mandatory field during the creation of a task, correct?
As it stands, there isn’t a feature to make fields mandatory in a task.
But as @Bastien_Siebman suggested, if you have a Premium Account, you can use Rules to automatically assign the task or add a collaborator when a task is added to a project. Please see screenshot attached.
I hope this helps Wesley! Please let me know if you have any follow-up question !
Thank you both for your responses! But I’m specifically asking about tags, not collaborators (I’ve figured out how to set the rule for collaborators). Currently I am using tags to indicate who has to review or take action on a task, and once someone is ready to pass the task to someone else I want them to put a new tag (tab t) and I’m wondering if before the task is closed, can Asana remind or require a tag to be updated or confirmed. Kind of similar to a form that has required fields. Thanks again!
Thank you for the clarification @Wesley_Gross!
As it stands, there isn’t a feature to remind or make a field mandatory in a task. There is an existing thread in the #productfeedback category regarding this topic: Required field to be filled in before allowing a task to be "completed". I would suggest you to add your comment and vote!
In case you have missed it, I would also recommend you to have a look at Approvals, a new type of task we have recently launched: https://forum.asana.com/t/upcoming-product-update-a-new-type-of-task-is-available-in-asana-meet-approvals/72608. You might find it helpful .
Please let me know if you have any follow-up question Wesley! Have a great weekend!
