Search and replace text

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.

This is VERY Necessary, Where is Asana Dev with this option?

Yep, and also find and replace within the task templates would be a nice addition too :slight_smile:


+1 for me as well.

My working case scenario is having to replace text for a specific task or description for many projects. Would be great if I could do a find/replace for all of Asana account.

I need search and replace in Asana too!

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.

Had the same issue and tried to find another alternative. FoxReplace works like a charm in Firefox.

Has this been added to Asana?
