In order to help us investigating this issue, could you please share the URL of the Project you’ve exported?
These ID’s look very neat (as in they have a loads of 0’s and end by 1,2,3); considering each task ID in the whole Asana is unique, the probability to have such a neat set of Id’s is beyond extraordinary!
Hopefully, looking at the project within our systems will give a piece of answer
Thanks for your help, I look forward to your reply!
A regular ID looks like this " 1107608961464616". So my gut feeling is some kind of overflow because the cell is a number celle and your Excel does not know how to display such a big number. Try to change to a text celle instead…
It’s not an Excel formatting issue. Excel will display all Task IDs by default as “1.12E+15” since there are too many digits, but when viewing the direct cell the raw data will display the true Task ID number.
I should have expanded on my initial post, but I slightly modified the Task IDs in my example for privacy purposes. I reduced the number of digits down and changed the pattern such that the issue could be easily understood. In reality, my Task IDs are 16 digits long and differ greatly from one versus the other.
Hi @EljVek and thank you so much for providing me with additional details via DM!
I took a look at your project and can confirm there is absolutely nothing wrong with your task IDs. We recently modified our system for task ID’s (see Reminder about two big upcoming API changes (String IDs and new sections)) which might explain why you have a set of IDs looking very neat in this project, but I can confirm that generally speaking; ID’s are random and not necessarily follow each other!
Let us know if you have additional questions or comments; happy Friday!
