Ability to disable Rule 'toast' notifications on bottom left.

I’m using asana app inside my Mac.
I have stablished a rule to move specific tasks to a section once they’re completed. But every time the rule is applied it will show this notification on the left side of the app (attaching a screenshot) which is very annoying to me, specially when I complete a bunch of tasks at the same time my computer has a hard time processing all the pop up boxes.
Is there a way to hide them? I’ve turned off all the “special celebrations” features inside my settings, but this seems to be different.


Hello @Patricia_Otero,

currently this is not possible. I have merged your post into an existing feedback request thread so don‘t forget to upvote.
A potential workaround has been listed here.

Why is this still not possible? Please just make an integration to disable the stupid simple pop-ups. It will make your tool much more interesting for automation. Now automation isn’t great to use.


Ok seriously, has this been added as a setting yet to disable these?

At an “Ask Us Anything” event in Japan, a user said that the toast popups are really distracting when many rules are run.

Even if Asana does need to notify the users and cannot disable the notifications, I think there can be some better alternative ways, e.g. it might be possible to batch the notifications in the inbox instead of displaying it in the window when we are working in the do not disturb mode.


Hello, just upvoting this issue.

Automatisation should make process nice and clean, and pop-up notification is distracting and useless.


Also really want this feature.

Is there a way that toast notifications can be disabled? They take up a lot of space on the screen every time you update a task with multiple rules. I only want to know if a rule did not run, I don’t need to be notified that it ran each time.


I’ve merged your request with an earlier thread.

Please vote for this request at the top of this thread.



Good news, we have just launched a new update aiming to reduce the number of on-screen notifications you see when multiple rules are being triggered synchronously. While we’re not planning to implement an option to disable these notifications completely, this update should significantly improve your experience :slight_smile:


Why are you not planning to implement an option to disable these notifications completely?

They steal screen estate.
They decrease work speed.
They decrease productivity.
They steal time from my life.

Please fix this.


At the very least, an option to relegate them to a “history”/“log” tab or your Inbox instead of on-screen would be even better. Inbox probably isn’t the best place for it, but just throwing ideas out. For instance, in a Discord Server, there’s an Audit Log that shows all changes made to users/channels/the server, etc. It’s tucked away in the Server Settings, but it’s there if you need it.

Marie, I can tell you the experience is still frustrating and not improved. Why do I have to be reminded that I have completed a task whenever I complete a task? You need to allow customers to disable it, just like other notifications. And if you add some analytics to the application in this area you will find out that there is quite a lot of customer who would like to disable them. There is no customer value, just frustration.

Adding my vote to this. I need to know when a rule fails, maybe, but the history log of each rule shows me when it is triggered successfully. The lower left side of the screen is where I interact with tasks, and it’s really annoying when clicking on a task or editing a task to have the pop-ups happen and block everything. Rules are there to be invisible and run silently and solidly. What is the design resistance or user scenario that you’re trying to protect by requiring visible notifications for every time a rule is run? How about just add a setting in the rule itself, along with “Can be triggered by another rule” that says, “Don’t notify on run” and just let us disable it selectively. 90% of my rules are not mission critical, but quality of life. I can see if it failed to populate a field or failed to move the tasks somewhere.

This was extremely useful. Tampermonkey worked really well, and was fairly easy to set up.

This is the script you can use in it to match Asana.com.

(function() {
    'use strict';
var manager = document.getElementsByClassName('ToastManager'); manager[0].style.left = "auto"; manager[0].style.right = "0px";

At the top of ClickUp’s preferences. So simple!
