Question

Asana: How do I unassign an Assignee when using "Update Task in Asana" action?

Hi Zapier community,

When I update the content of an existing asana task I have the following challenges.
My task is to update the content, tags, due date and followers, but leaving the assignee blank.
What happens is, that the “Update Task in Asana” still keeps the old entry of the old assignee when I update the task, even though I leave it blank.


Is there any command I can add to this field that it will clear the field when updated and leave the assignee empty?

Looking forward hearing from you.


Thanks Bruno

Hi @Bruno 

Good question.

In this case, you may have to use the Asana API to unassign: https://developers.asana.com/reference/updatetask

This would allow you to set a null value for the Assignee.
