Hi @Katie! Would it be possible for you to provide an update as it pertains to this feature request? This is something I deal with daily… for example, I ran 16 templates within the last 24 hours and have had to manually rename hundreds upon hundreds of tasks that either a variable text field or a bulk edit feature would resolve. I would truly this feature! Thanks for your insights in advance!
Adding find and replace would easily save me several hours per week. I’m a content production manager, and our templated projects have many tasks which include the project name. Currently I have to manually copy/paste every one.
when you refresh the page the text you replaced will revert back, right? I used the same extension and it did this. So it was changing the text you saw on the web page, but not the actual embedded text in the project.
Bumping this topic as we are templating out workflows that are from initial customer contact all the way through our own factory’s production so this can save us hundreds of hours per year. I’m happy to talk to the decision makers who tell us that they’re always looking to improve client experience. This is a biggie for the Asana super users who are trying to really maximize the platform. This thread is evidence.
I’d love to be able to do this, too. My use case: I needed to use the same names (state names) for the “name” field for two different tables. (I know, not awesome) However, there is a parenthetical after the name in the copy/paste from one table to another. I’d really like to find/replace the parenthetical instead of re-typing.
I can make a formula field for this, but since you can’t use a formula field for the primary field, it won’t be as great.
