Tasks by duration

Hi, does anyone know if you can schedule tasks by duration and then set the tasks in a template? thanks

Hi @sinead_turnbull :wave:t5: Welcome to the Forum!

That is a great question! You can add a date range to your tasks by using the start date feature. You can read more about it in the following guide article: https://asana.com/guide/help/premium/start-dates#gl-task-start-dates

I would also recommend you to have a look a the following guide article: https://asana.com/guide/help/premium/custom-templates#gl-autoshifting-dates

I hope this helps Sinead but please let me know if you have any follow-up question!

Hi @sinead_turnbull,

You might want to also check out my Flowsana integration to see if it meets your needs - one of the available workflow types, Dynamic Duration workflows, works by having you set a duration for each task in a template (4 days, 3 weeks, etc.) instead of an actual calendar date; then when you create a project from that template, Flowsana automatically fills in (and keeps updated) task dates based on those durations and the dependencies you set up.
