Firstly, apologies if I am creating a duplicate topic. I searched around the community forum and wasn’t able to find an answer to my question, nor anyone asking the question, for that matter.
We have a scenario where some parent tasks and corresponding subtasks have the same custom field applied to them. In theory, the custom field on the parent task and corresponding subtask should always contain matching numeric data (but are susceptible to human error causing misalignment as the data is manually entered). The custom field must be available on both the parent task and corresponding subtask, because in some instances, collaborators might only have permission to view the subtask and not the task.
Is there a way to have a subtask’s custom field data reflect the parent task’s custom field data, without manually entering in the information, if they both have that particular custom field applied to them?
I’m looking to improve both accuracy and efficiency in our Asana flow as we will have countless subtasks at scale.
As an example: if I add an
id field to my parent task and this particular task’s
"1", can I have corresponding subtask’s
id fields automatically populate to
"1" if they have an
Thanks in advance!
