I’m excited to announce that today we’re launching a brand new type of task in Asana! So instead of wasting time chasing down approvals via in-person meetings, and long email threads or spreadsheets, you can now create quick and trackable approval tasks in Asana to move forward with your work while avoiding any mistakes along the way!
If you’d like to learn how to create Approvals in Asana, or how to approve/reject/request changes for approvals you’ve been assigned, have a look at this brand new article from our Help Guide! In addition to this article, here are a couple of important things to keep in mind:
- Approvals are available both on the web and mobile!
- Subtasks can be marked as Approvals.
- Just like tasks, anyone can complete an Approval not just the Assignee. You can use Comment-only projects to ensure that only the assignee can Approve a given task.
- When I marked “Request changes” on the approval, it completed my task even though it needs more work: We recommend that you set up rules on approvals to ensure that the task gets automatically routed to the right person once the approver completes it. For example, you can select a rules trigger based on “Request changes” and route the approval task to whoever needs to make changes by using the actions “assign to” or “add collaborator.”
This update is already available to all our customers We hope you enjoy it as much as we do and we can’t wait to hear your feedback! Please post any questions you might have in the comments below and log your feedback in #productfeedback.
Happy Thursday everyone!
