How to Import Tasks from Asana


April 23, 2014


Lee Branch, founder of Intently Digital, recently emailed us a simple tip for importing tasks from Asana, and suggested we post it, as he’d been struggling to figure it out. So, here’s what Lee suggested:

Basically you select a project, then highlight all tasks in that project.
The do CMD +C (new to macs, basically the copy keyboard shortcut – CTRL+C on a PC)
This pops up an overlay of all the tasks which you can highlight/copy/paste as plain text 🙂

Hopefully someone finds this useful!

Update: Lee made a video demonstrating how it works.

When you click on the video link it just says “Sorry! That page doesn’t seem to exist.”

Which link are you referring to?

Word 2013 reads PDF files into word, so I just print and open the file in Word. That brings all the sub and sub-sub tasks along as well.

I thought this deserved an explanatory (and albeit blurry) video –
