Asana Features Supported by Ditto

API Limitations

Some features available in the Asana UI are not possible to access from the API. As a result Ditto can't copy them to new workspaces, and you will have to manually update tasks where feasible.

Unsupported Features

Some features are supported by the API, but either haven't yet been implemented in the project transfer, or don't fit the existing project transfer model. They may be implemented later.

Hello, will transferring of Workflows, Rules and Forms ever be added to this tool/is this something in development? I’m so happy to have found this tool for more robust transfers, but am dying to find something that also transfers over Workflows and Rules so that I don’t have to constantly rebuild these with each Client project we use our base templates for outside of our Workspace. Would love to know if this could/will be a feature.

Hi, will ditto copy the notification-settings of the projects? I’d like to prevent triggering a notification for each step of the migration and are therefore thinking of turning of the notifications before the migration and later activate the notifications in the transferred project.

Hi Michael, im trying to migrate some project from an organization space, to one workspace , how do it works? because said error, i have to state the destination workspace dont belong to my organization, that has relation with the error or im doing something wrong? Thanks

Where is the Priorities category? Is that on the production track to include? Our Priorities are not migrating.

Sorry I missed these comments!

@Joshua, yes, timelines are transferred, however task dependencies are not currently supported.

@Seb, yes, unfortunately tasks are only coordinated within a single transfer, so multi-homed tasks will not be created across multiple transfers.

Hi, Are timelines transferable?

Seb Keenan - 15 Jul 21 08:41 UTC

Thanks Michael. Do they have to be in the same transfer for it to work? I have 6 Teams, so will be transferring projects one Team at a time. However, many of these tasks have multi-homes across the various Teams.

Hi Seb,

Yes, multi-homed tasks are supported. If you include both projects in a transfer, any take they share will be created once and linked to both projects.

Hi, if I set up identical Teams in the destination workspace (with the exact same users), is Ditto able to support cross-project Task tagging? I.e. will tasks that appear in 2 or more projects be automatically migrated in both or more projects?

Thanks for the suggestion Larry, I have added Task Templates to the table. For those wondering, currently these aren’t accessible through the API, so can’t be supported by Ditto.

Michael, It would be great to add Task Templates to the feature support table as not supported until you’re able to. Thanks for an excellent app!!!!!

Hi there, I am constantly getting an error that access is denied and the transfer actually happens, but partially. I don’t use any of the unsupported aspects of Asana, so I am not sure how to solve this issue? Thanks!

Hi Adam,

Goals and Progress Updates are not currently supported by the Asana API, and so are unfortunately not possible to transfer using Ditto.

Adam Cragg - 19 Nov 20 17:36 UTC

Are Goals and Progress updates transferable?

I am getting a connection error when trying to transfer data from an account that is under SSO (Okta) even though I am logged into the relevant accounts. Is there a way to make that work?

Michael Houston - 26 Apr 20 18:30 UTC

Sorry, not at the moment - Rules haven’t been made available to the API, so Ditto isn’t able to modify them.

I’ll update the table above, thanks for bringing it to my attention!

How about rules? Does Ditto support them as well?
