Selection of more than 50 tasks

It would be great if the number of tasks that can be selected at one time is increased from 50 as this will save time when having to unassign task owners.

Thank you for your feedback @Joanna_Yiptatchung!

There is an existing thread requesting this functionality so I’ve gone ahead and merged it with it to consolidate feedback on this topic. Don’t forget to upvote it!

Please have a look at the workaround provided here. You might find it helpful!

Hi, this may be a silly question…how do i upvote? is it by clicking on the heart icon?

You can add your vote by clicking on the “Vote” button next to the thread’s title. slight_smile

Thanks @Natalia. How do i even add this voting button to my post?

Looks like your voted has been cast @Joanna_Yiptatchung :raised_hands:

Hi @Natalia, I think there is a similar request here: Selection of more than 50 tasks.

Can you merge these together?

Thank you for flagging this @Armando_Lopez_Jr! I’ve just merged them! :slight_smile:

I’m absolutely shocked that this limitation exists, especially for business-class, paid users. It’s an egregious and senseless limitation of necessary functionality, and it’s tipped my position from “Asana is OK” to “I’m going to start heavily and actively recommending we move our company away from it.” Software that permits this kind of thing is clearly not at all concerned with usability, and clearly unfit for business/premium use. The point of paying for premium service is that basic functionality should always be present and usable, and this limit is both completely ridiculous, and completely interferes with the product’s usability. -1,000 points for this, Asana.

Maybe you can share what your use case is, so we can understand why you need to act on more than 50 tasks at a time.

Hi Bastien, I don’t know about Marie’s case, but very often I have more than 50 tasks to move on a timeline, when there is a delay on the planning for instance, and in that case this limitation is an issue…

Fair enough!

Hi Bastien,

This is becoming a very critical feature I personally need as I routinely sort a automated tasks and 50 is just not nearly enough, I need 200 at least.

This problem is even worse because via the API I can’t even re-order existing tasks so please make this happen, I think it is all ready too late for us in this sense as xmas is generating so many tasks, I might have to look else where.

Just to be clear, I don’t work for Asana :slight_smile:

Hey bud! With the most recent My Tasks Update:

I have about 2,000 or so odd tasks that I definitely do not want to delete, but just want to simply move them from the “Recently Assigned” section to “Completed” across 2 sections (which have over 1,000 tasks - doesn’t even let you minimize the section in List View if it has over 1,000 tasks oddly).

So yeah, bulk editing this at a max of 50 at a time has been painful :sweat_smile: actually checked out your site hoping you had something that allowed you to bulk edit everything in a section to move it to another section, but alas, couldn’t find that tool.

Any advice?

Nope don’t have that indeed. Find an assistant to do that for you? ^^

@abass have you tried to move more than 50 items using the new section icons in My Tasks? I believe this is the only action you can take when exceeding the 50 item section.

That worked, thank you! :raised_hands::raised_hands:

Yes, doing 500-800 at a time starts glitching out Asana, but waiting long enough and it all went though! My gosh, WAYYYY better than doing 50 at a time.

@Marco_Marsala a big thank you for that work around to delete more than 50 tasks at a time (keyboard shortcut) - so helpful!

Nice! :heart:
