Take a look at the About page for an overview of the what and the why of Ditto
Ditto is a tool for copying Asana projects between workspaces. It is developed by Mike Houston, a software developer in York in the UK.
There's a table of supported features
Some features of the Asana web app are not available through the API, and can't be copied. Currently the most obviously missing feature is recurring tasks.
Ditto communicates with Asana's service via the API. It only reads data in direct response to user interaction or as a result of a user's approval for ongoing access. Only data required for the operation of the service is requested.
Data retrieved from the API includes, but is not limited to, lists of projects, users, tasks, comments and attachments.
Ditto stores a single cookie 'chronicle' containing the encrypted state of your user session. This information is required for the service to operate, and stores your authorization credentials for the Asana API.
You can revoke Ditto's access at any time from the Asana settings for your account.
Data stored on servers
During a transfer operation, the user's authorization credentials for the Asana API are stored on our servers. They are removed when the job completes or has failed, and expire from the service after 24 hours in case of any other error preventing their immediate removal.
Data collected for the operation of the service is automatically cleared after 36 hours. It may be manually removed from the web interface at any time by the user.
Logs of transfer operations are retained for debugging purposes for 30 days, after which they are automatically cleared. The logs do not contain personally identifiable information, but do record the IDs of some records being copied.
Anonymized (hashed) IDs are retained to track usage of the service.
No data you give us or that is collected from your authorized Asana account is ever shared with third parties, except when it is sent back to Asana.
Data collected from Asana is stored temporarily on our servers, which are provided by Amazon Web Services in the us-east-1 region (North Virginia, USA).

I’m trying to transfer a project in Asana from one organization to another organization. However, I keep getting an error message about bad connection. Can you help?

Is it possible to copy a project from one organization to another?
I keep getting an error when I try to transfer 1 project with a lot of archived content to my new organization. Is there a way I could get some assistance?
Hi. I just did some testing with your tool. I have some users who are joining a new nonprofit, so they will need to be split off of our organization to their own. This tool is going to be very helpful for that, I think. During our testing, we noticed that the new tool (Ditto) works great, but it did not transfer .docx or .pages documents. The old tool (Kothar) transferred all attachments, but mentions in the comments were converted to Asana reference URLs. Those URLs will be broken once we convert this new workspace to its own organization. Ideally, Ditto would allow us to transfer all file types including .docx and .pages. If this cannot be remedied, we will likely use Kothar instead and forfeit the ability to transfer mentions of users in comments.
Just FYI, the attachment types we attempted to transfer were .doc, .docx, .xlsx, .pages, .key, .pdf, .gif, and .pptx. All worked except for .docx and .pages. As stated above, they all transferred using Kothar. Thanks!
