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.

Hi, Are timelines transferable?

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.

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?

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?
