Hi, we recently started to use sections more to help limit the use of subtasks. However, when we make a task a section, the subtasks remain as subtasks to the section. I would like to make all of the subtasks regular tasks of a particular section.
The drag and drop recommendations for making a subtask a task are not working.
I’m new around here, but I think the method would be this:
- Convert back to regular task (remove colon).
- With both panes open showing “task list” and “task info”, you select all subtasks (using shift+click) then drag them over to left hand “task list”. The drag icon shows up when hovering over a task. You must use it to drag.
- Once Subtasks are moved to “task list”, add colon to Parent Task then sort as necessary.
If drag and drop isn’t working between the two panes this is probably a support issue.
I don’t see a way to edit my post… but I forgot to mention this. When dragging over, you MUST hover over part of the list that alrady has tasks/sections. You can not just drag over to empty space. Asana wants to know exactly where you want to drop the sub tasks.
@Matthew_Burt you get editing privileges after you have posted a certain number of times
So you need to reach trustlevel 2 in order to edit your own posts? That is not the default setting of discourse, the forum software we’re using here, and I think it is annoyingly restrictive. I had the same problem with my post above so I had to delete it.
