Unable to update the task in Asana under a project: Getting "parent" error.

I am having a tricky time getting Zapier to pull certain data from Asana and send it to AdaptiveWork. I can:

  • Create a project in Asana and send it to AdaptiveWork.
  • Create a task in Asana and send it to AdaptiveWork.
  • But I cannot seem to update a task under a project - I hit a a ‘parent’ error, and no options I choose pulled from Asana seem to work. As such I cannot update anything, but only create new tasks (orphaned) which makes the integration a one-off and not consistently useful.

Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi...

Hey there,  @RGS! Thanks for reaching out in community - we definitely want to help! 

Hmm, for Asana tasks listed under a project I wonder if adding a “Find Task in Project” search step would help? So it might look like:

  1. Trigger
  2. Find Task in Project” Search - Asana
  3. Update Task” Action - Asana

Do you think that could work? Keep us posted! 🙂
