how do i copy multiple tasks at once including sub tasks?

Hi @Stuart_Lisk

To copy multiple tasks, you select the first one by clicking on its title, holding down shift and selecting the last one. Or you can select non-consecutive tasks by holding down Ctrl.

The only way that I know of to copy subtasks is to add them to the project, which makes them appear outside of the parent task, or to drag them out manually, copy all of the tasks at once, then drag them back in again.

This only really applies if you’re copying tasks within the same project. If you want to copy tasks to another project, it’s much better and easier to multi-home them by adding them to more than one project.

Hope that helps.

Hi @Stuart_Lisk! @Mark_Hudson is completely right there! Here is a little more info on multi-selecting (https://asana.com/guide/help/faq/multiselect) and copying (https://asana.com/guide/help/tasks/actions#gl-copy-tasks) tasks! Let us know if there is anything else we can help with!

@Marie @Mark_Hudson I was able to select multiple tasks but do not see where I can select copy. How do you copy them once they are selected?

Hi @Chris_Nordman

To copy, you just use the usual keyboard shortcut - Ctrl/Command + C.

Ha! Overthought this one, didn’t I? Thanks! This should be the last piece I need to get this going.

This isn’t working for me. Nothing shows up when I paste the tasks.
