Same task showing up multiple times

Under Recently Assigned, I am seeing the same task repeated several times, near doubling the actual tasks assigned to me. For example, I could create a task that says “Call HR” but it may show up twice as 2 separate tasks even though the information for both is the same. Any idea how to correct this?

Is it a recurring task?

Or are subtasks involved?

Are they all in same project?

Another question: when you open one and the other do you see the same address in the browser/same id?

The browser address is different

They are all recurring tasks

Please share a screenshot, sometimes there are little clues that will help us debug.

Then those are different tasks.

You’ll see in the image, the same task with the same due date (and information within Details) is repeated multiple times. It makes Asana not very useful. If I was to Complete one task, the other will remain. Not sure if I am looking at duplicated tasks, which I didn’t purposefully create

I think @Stephanie_Oberg, called it originally.

@Hamilton_Steimer, you may recurring date subtasks. Perhaps they’re within a recurring date parent task. That’s a no-no because it leads to the creation of many unexpected tasks. Nothing in Asana prevents you from creating this problem, but you should rectify it by either not having recurring dates at the parent level or not having recurring dates in the subtasks if you do.

Hope that helps,

Larry

So that was a recurring task with recurring subtasks? I call it “recurring hell” :slight_smile: :sweat_smile:
