Zapier Integration to create subtasks

Hi!

I’m trying to create subtasks for all new tasks added to a project. The workflow looks fine until Zapier asks that I enter a Parent Task for the subtasks to be created on. This isn’t possible as the task hasn’t been created yet. Can someone point me in the right direction for this?

Thanks!

i have the same problem. I tried to add FIND step in between
but i keep getting Parent not found (if i choose the Asana task ID to be parent) or task: not long error (if you choose the search keyword to be parent)

Hi @marcus.whitaker and @Andriy_Naumov,

FYI this capability is available in my Flowsana integration. via the Add subtasks from a template rule action - you might want to check that out. :slight_smile:

Hi, I have the same issue. Can someone from Asana please reply to help? Thank you

I found a solution:

  1. add “create a subtask” asana step
  2. when it ask you to specify the parent task, click “custom” and scroll down to click “add search step”
  3. it will then create a step above called “find task in project (legacy)”
  4. specify your parent task
  5. reference that parent task in the step beneath that
  6. profit!
