Asana/Outlook hyperlinks posted as text - show clickable link

Hi folks,

Looking for a solution for the following problem. I created the Outlook-Asana connection and creating tasks from emails is done very easily. However, after the task has been created in Asana, it is shown as plain text. This is not a problem, however hyperlinks are shown as plain text as well, hence it is not a clickable link.


Does anyone have the same issue and/or have a solution to this problem?


Hi @Kevin_G, welcome to the Asana Community forum :wave:

This is the current expected experience. I understand this is not ideal so I’ve gone ahead and moved your post to the #productfeedback category for the time being to give you and other community members an option to vote for this feature!

I’ll let you know if we have any updates :slight_smile:

@Rebecca_McGrath has there been an update to this?

One more request for the Outlook add-in - can it please preserve links in the text of an email when added to an Asana task? Atm any links becomes plain text and have to be copy-pasted into the web browser, which is a bit irritating.

Thanks for sharing your feedback @EJ_Mann, I have found an existing feedback request thread about this topic so I have merged your post into that one. Don‘t forget to upvote there :slight_smile:
