Asana integration: editing submissions creates a new entry instead of replacing original task

    Hi, Is there anyway of preventing a duplicate task being created in Asana when editing a submission in the inbox?

    We are using the approval workflow and at times need to make a change to the form before approving but this is creating a duplicate task in asana which is causing confusion.

    Thank you

    Thank you for reaching out.

    It seems that the integration only allows to create tasks but is not aware of already existing tasks.

    I will send it to our developers, I am not sure if it is a bug or a missing feature.

    Thank you for your patience.

    I don't want it to replace the original task... ideally I would like it not to do anything when a submission is edited.
