Just had a question come up while analyzing some data: under what conditions does task modified meta data (date/time stamp) change?
I guess any change to:
Custom field modified
Is there anything else I’m missing? Specifically if a task is in a project and the project is put in a portfolio then does that trigger an update to all tasks in the project or any other big call outs that anyone has knowledge of would be great!
Good question. Maybe @sasha_f can help us with this one?
Hey folks, sorry for the belated reply. Checked with engineering and found out the following conditions change the
- story is created on a task
- story is trashed on a task
- attachment is trashed on a task
- task is assigned or unassigned
- custom field value is changed
- the task itself is trashed
- Or if of the following fields are updated:
The task moving to a new container (project, portfolio, etc) will not affect its
Thanks so much.
So what’s not covered, from the top of my head:
- adding a subtask
- … anything else?
Not sure what “story” is.
Attachment trashed but what about added?
Do comments trigger a modification?
A “story” is the technical Asana term for a comment, or system-generated note, added in the activity list of a task.
Story also includes info like “Name was changed” “Due date was changed” “Task was liked”…
Right, that’s what I meant by “system-generated note”; I should have been more specific there.
You are right you said it already my bad
Thanks both for the clarification, and humor
