Undo actions

Hi @Laura_P,

There’s no explicit undo, but in the Change View menu (top right corner of main tasks pane) you can tick the radio button next to Completed Tasks to see only those, then Sort by Completion Date. Multi-select tasks to mark incomplete (cntrl-click each one, or click the first then shift-click the last) then click the green “Completed” button at the top of the task detail pane to mark them all incomplete.

If spread across many projects, you could do a Search to get them in a list then follow then multi-select and mark incomplete from the search results view.

Hope that helps…

I just used TAB+P to move a task to a project and it has disappeared - no undo box came up. An undo button or something would be very helpful here. I don’t remember what the task was - so I cannot even look it up.

accidentally changed a lengthy task to “q” when I was trying to hit “ctrl q” on my keyboard but mistyped. i have no idea what the task was, and no way to undo it.
now i’m worried i’m going to forget something important. please add better undo functionality!

Can you include a photo? I can’t find the “Show Recents and more…” link.

Often multiple tasks re getting selected by accident and getting dragged into another section. We are talking dozens of task being mixed into a new section and no way to undo. Take nearly an hour to correct. Its happened half a dozen times, becoming a deal breaker.

Echoing John above, moving a task to a different section ended up moving all the tasks below it as well with no way to easily undo that action.

I just finished creating a large project with lots of tasks that had start and end dates. Then I converted the tasks to milestones, and realized 10 seconds too late that milestones can’t have start and end dates for some reason, they only have end dates. So then I lost an hour of work :face_with_head_bandage:

Why theres no ctrl+Z or ctrl+Shift+Z for Undo the action? :(((((((((( when you organize and moving the task and project, sometime you made mistake its unavoidable, really from 2017 to 2020 :frowning: there’s still no undo button, I planning propose to my boss changing our project management tools from trello to asana but seeing there’s no an undo button is a big no for me

I duplicated around 15 tasks and about 9 subtasks to a new project. When I went back to the original project to delete them, it also deleted it from the new project. I didn’t know this until far after the 10-second window.

Is there a way to recover these?

PLEASE ADD UNDO OPTION – THANK YOU

CREATE AN UNDO / REDO BUTTON LIKE IN GOOGLE DOCS/SHEETS/ETC

Accidental drag/drops, etc is killing our team trying to figure out what went where and correcting it.

Just been moved to using Asana over MS Project - No undo is utterly mind boggling. The transition without it means I’ve got the old MS Project version out and I’ll keep plugging away on that before this gets basic features.

I see this thread has been going on for 3 years and still no Undo button or CTRL Z - very disappointing as I’ve accidentally overtyped my colleague’s task. Asana, please can you explain why this enhancement has not progressed - it’s clearly needed.
