Rule for Approvals Help


We are looking to start utilizing the approval process in Asana more and have a couple great use case projects for this. I am wondering if there is currently a way to set up an automation so whenever a task is added to a certain project the task automatically gets “Marked as Approval” without having to manually go to each task or mass select and use the 3 dot menu to select “Marked as Approval”.


Hi @amanda5 and welcome to the forum!

There is not currently a way to do that. You can use the Approval status as a trigger in a rule, but it’s not available as an action.

Just to add on a bit, if you do mark a task for approval in a template, any project created by that template will copy over the “Marked as Approval” for those tasks.

Adding Approvals options as Action in Rules will be great addition
