Adding subtasks via csv



Hi, how do I add subtasks to a project via csv. I am trying to start a brand new project (so this would be my first/only import). I have the fields mapped for due date, assignee, task and subtask. But “subtask” doesn’t get imported; everything else does. Any thoughts? Thanks!


Hi @LW1!
This is a great question. At the moment subtasks aren’t supported via our CSV importer just yet, though I’m happy to add this request as feedback for our CSV importer.

Feel free to make a post in our #productfeedback category to increase the visibility of this ask, and to have our community members vote on how strongly they’d like this feature included in our CSV importer.

Hope this helps!


Hi, this status update has aged a bit. Any news on importing subtasks?


Hi again @Justus_Zenker!

Not at the moment, unfortunately.

Our Team is looking at how to include the ability to integrate Asana features like Subtasks & Dependencies, via our CSV importer, at some point in the future though unfortunately this isn’t possible just yet:no_mouth:

Hope this helps clarify things a bit more!


Thanks for the update, @Michael_A! Are you able to share that Tags are also being considered as well?


Hi, I noticed that the Asana Guide references the ability to import subtasks now using the ‘Subtask Of’ additional field when mapping columns from a csv file… however I can’t seem to find this option when importing, is this a tease of an upcoming release?


Just spoken to the sales team and this is indeed part of the current release… hooray! It’s just my account that may need ‘fixing’ eeek


Yes @Alex_Thut this option will be released next week; you can learn more in this article :point_right:

Marking this one :white_check_mark:


Hi all, for anyone else looking for info on this there was an issue with the initial release and it wasn’t added yet, the aim is apparently to have it out THIS very week :slight_smile:
The documentation in this case is just a spoiler lol.


I should expand that is information is the result of contact with the support team, not some deep insider knowledge!


Thanks for the correction @Alex_Thut, you’re :100:right :slight_smile: Not long to go now!
