Ditto Open Beta
Sun, 23 Jun 2019 / projects / asana / ditto

Ditto is a tool for transferring Asana projects between workspaces. It is a complete rewrite of an earlier project with the unwieldy title 'Organise Asana Projects' but colloquially known as 'Kothar' by the Asana community.

Ditto, or 'Kothar 2', fixes a number of longstanding issues with the original implementation, allowing faster and more accurate project copies to be created. It's also much more pleasant to work with from the development side, which means I am more inclined to spend time updating and improving it.

Organise Asana Projects

UPDATE: Ditto - the successor to this tool - has now been launched. Please give it a go and let me know how you get on!

I was faced recently with wanting to move Asana projects from one workspace to another. Unfortunately this isn't a feature in the Asana interface (yet).

There's a PHP script floating around GitHub which will copy tasks between projects. This requires you to do some manual checking of project IDs, and you need to create the target project in advance, so I've extended the script and written a front-end web interface for it.

You can get the source code on BitBucket.

Visit asana.kothar.net to use the tool

Before you start, you may need to set up a few things that the tool can't do on its own though the API.

  1. Add your new user account (for your destination workspace) to your old workspace, if not already using the same email address
  2. Log in to Asana with your new account
  3. Add any accounts you want to keep task assignments for to the new workspace
  4. Add any custom fields you want to keep to the new workspace (pro workspaces)
  5. Log in to the tool: https://asana.kothar.net
  6. Choose the source workspace and project you’d like to copy
  7. Choose where you’d like to copy to
  8. Hit Go!
