Template assigned tasks show up in My Tasks automatically?


Thanks @Bastien_Siebman! @Greg_George we already have a thread on this topic, so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with Template assigned tasks show up in My Tasks automatically?. Feel free to had your vote at the top of this main thread! :slight_smile:


Where is the “Later” section you all speak of?

The only collapsible section I have in My Tasks is “New Tasks”

Dang…really disappointed. I was really loving Asana until this was discovered. I just moved to Asana from Teamwork and I used Teamworks templates a TON.

Just reiterating to the dev team…please make templates not live!


Hi @Ryan_Reed, You only see the Later section if you have something in it. It feels like a design flaw in my opinion as it then makes it impossible to drag things to it. But you can still use the keyboard section to move something there (TAB+L).


Ahhh thanks! Makes things so much easier to organize!


Fix this and I become a paid user!


I think that’s the problem…I’m not a developer, but it appears that there wasn’t a lot of new functionality built into Templates. It’s basically just a Project.


We struggle with this as well. The idea that this can be used as a template is essentially pointless - it really is just another project. The template would be more effective if we could have all the assignees already plugged into each of their respective tasks but NOT show in their “My Tasks” view because, at this point in time, it’s just a template. Then , when “Duplicate Project” occurs and the box is checked to carry the assignees, it triggers the tasks to show up in the respective assignee’s My Task View.

As it is today, I literally have a task in my template telling someone to duplicate the template and then assign all the tasks and sub-tasks. Sadly, the person that kicks this off doesn’t necessarily have all those answers.
