Asana for Gmail: The Best of Both Worlds
Asana has been working with the G Suite team and just released the Asana for Gmail add on. With this add-on you can turn your emails into actionable tasks that are tracked in Asana without leaving your inbox. We all spend a significant part of our day in email and these emails often come in fast and furious. So you turn your attention to the new email and forget about the one you were working on. Emails fall through the cracks like this all the time and it can quickly derail work.
Email wasn’t built for tracking to-dos or managing projects and that’s where Asana comes in. Asana is built to help teams plan, manage, and track work and by combining the two in this new Asana for Gmail add-on, you’ll be able to send emails to Asana and get the best of both worlds. Directly within Gmail, you can now turn an email into a task, assign it to yourself or a teammate, set a due date, add it to a project, and include attachments. Once an email and a task are linked, any actions taken in either Gmail or Asana will automatically appear in the Asana sidebar in Gmail or the task in Asana. This add-on will help you turn any email communication into actionable work. https://blog.asana.com/2017/10/emails-tasks-gmail-asana-integration/
