I am trying to create a path when an outlook email is received to update or create a task on Asana

Check if task title exists = set by email subject

A: IF exists add a comment (story) on existing task

B: IF doesnt exists create new task  





As task i need to search by the Email Subject for the system to decide if task exists already or not. 

System doesn't allow to be searched by new Email subject, I can only specify task that already exist on Asana. 

This is where i need help. 

How can i search if task exist → if yes to find it and update comment?

Hi @Athena 

Use these Asana actions then you won’t need Paths.


Thank you Troy
