Steps to reproduce: I don’t know how it’s reproduced.

Browser version: Mac Desktop App

What version of Asana are you using (Basic/Premium/Business/Enterprise)? Business I think

This is what happens when you explicitly add Subtasks to the same Project as the Parent Task. Try going to a Subtask that is a Card on your Board, and remove the Project name from the project field. Then refresh.
