Currently the “Send me email notifications for:” setting only has three options:
- Activity updates
a. New tasks assigned to you, @mentions, and completion notifications for tasks you’re a collaborator on
- Daily summaries
- Weekly reports
As an Asana user that is connected to numerous tasks in Asana,
I want the ability to further limit the individual Activity Updates that create email notifications,
So that I am not receiving too many emails,
And can be productive using Asana.
- Once I am assigned to a task or am mentioned in a task I become a ‘follower’ of that task.
- Followers of tasks receive all of the email notifications for that task moving forward - regardless of whether or not they are mentioned in the task or if the task is assigned to them.
- Many times my involvement in a task is limited and I only need to address concerns when I am actually mentioned in the task.
- Once one email comes out and responses are issued from there, many email clients (such as gmail) clump the email thread together. This makes tracking a conversation easier, however, when many unwanted emails are sent in the thread becomes long and overwhelming and important action items such as mentions can be lost. While email clumping is a email client function, Asana should take this into account as these are the platforms their users are using for work.
- Within the Activity Update Email Notification setting, allow a user to select individual actions (such as being mentioned in a task) to trigger an email notification. The user should not have to receive email notifications for ALL activities associated to a task in which they are following.
