Template task date calculation incorrect (90 days after project start)

Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing:
When using a project template with a task due “90 days after project start date”, the date is not calculating correctly.

Steps to reproduce:
Create a template with a task due 90 days after start date. Create a new project from the template. You will notice the task is due further out than 90 days and not exactly 90 days.

Browser version:
Edge for Windows

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

Hi @Brendan_Meehan,

It’s actually not a bug; you probably have the “Skip weekends” option enabled in your project template:

Jan 1, 2024 is 90 business days (i.e. weekdays) from Aug 28, 2023.

FYI if you need to know where that “Skip weekends” is set within the project template, it’s not at all obvious; see How to Use Asana Project Templates | Product Guide • Asana Product Guide for that.


Thank you! That was the problem!
