Tasks
1
Project a lookup mapping, which means that it will look at the projects that exist in your Asana account to link the Task to. You must have a project in the column in your CSV file which matches what is in Asana, in order for the mapping to work. Please note, Project is a required field to be able to import a Task into Asana!
2
Section is also a lookup mapping, which means that it will look at the actual sections that you have setup in your Asana project. You must have a section in your CSV file which matches what is in Asana, in order for the mapping to work.
3
Name is an open text field, so you can import any value you want to appear here. Please note, this field is required to import a Task into Asana!
4
Completed is a true/false (i.e. "yes" or "no") field in Asana. You must indicate true or false in your CSV in order for this field to be imported correctly.
5
Assignee is a lookup mapping, which means that it will look at the users that exist in your Asana account. You must have the users setup prior, and have their identifying information in your CSV file (like email address, or name) which matches what is in Asana, in order for the mapping to work
6
Due date is a date/time field, which means that your CSV should have a valid date/time in order for the mapping to work. During the mappings step, you can select the format of the date/time in your CSV file so that is properly recognized during the import. All date/times in this column in your CSV should be in the same format. Please note that you have the option to map either "Due on" (which is date and time) OR "Due at" (which is just the date) during the mappings. You cannot map both, but select the one which corresponds to the data you have in your CSV file.
7
Notes is an open text field, so you can import any value you want to appear here.
