Import to update existing tasks

Apologies if there is a way to do this but my google-fu has failed thus far.
It would be great if importing could use unique identifiers (such as the Asana assigned Task ID) to match to existing tasks and update/add/overwrite fields associated with that task.

From my current testing it duplicates tasks rather than updating them, which makes sense given that many use-cases may have tasks which require duplicate names so maybe an option to match or not to match?

Thanks for thoughts, tips, help.

Very interesting feedback @Alex_Thut! I’m afraid this is not possible at the moment, but hopefully this is something we can look into in the future!
