Rules Precedence/Reordering

Question: how does Asana determine which order rules are applied in when multiple rules could potentially affect a task? Is it just based on the order in which the rules were created?

If this is the case, then my product suggestion is to allow for the ‘rules list’ to be reordered so we can have better control over which rules have priority.

Recently @Brice_Fischer tested the order of the actions within a rule, which seem to be fired in the displayed order (even though you can’t reorder). Brice, did you test the order in which rules run in general?

Thanks @Bastien_Siebman that’s what I’m seeing with rules in general too, I just haven’t tested extensively yet.

Hi @Bastien_Siebman and @ceturley Today I redid some tests and it seems that the order of the actions is only respected in the case of multi-step rules. If simple rules are used, the order of the actions becomes random (and therefore unreliable).
