Failed to find a task in Asana: Error from halted execution: Nothing could be found for the search

I’m trying to assign someone to an existing task in an existing project in asana. The project template is exactly the same, and there will be multiple projects so I am trying to use the ‘find project’ step to find the project, then find the existing task within that project, then update the found task but I keep getting errors. What am I doing wrong?


This is how I *want* the zap to be setup: 


I can search for the custom project based on the trigger which is great, see below: 



I’m then trying to search for the specific tasks WITHIN that custom project search that already exist and this is the error I’m getting: 



I then want to update that task that I find as completed but because the search for task isn’t finding the task ID, I can’t do this. 

I then I want to repeat the search and update for a second task in the same project. 

Any help is appreciated!

I ended up figuring out that it was picking up the wrong project - hence why nothing was being found.
