Is it possible to assign a task to an external company and name it (only for information) without adding it to the project?
You can assign a task to anyone, even a guest. And a task does not have to belong to a project. Also, if you assign a task to a guest, they won’t even see the project it belongs to.
Does this help?
Hello. I just need to enter the name of the third party company that did the job without inviting them to the asana. If that's not possible, I understand. Greetings.
I mean to create a virtual project user.
I have 2 options for you then:
- use a Person custom field, instead of assigning
- create a “fake” guest account for this provider. For example firstname.lastname@example.org. You don’t give them access, but you can at least have a nice picture and a clear name.
In this way, I have to set up separate email accounts for each company and I don’t want to do that
Then go with the other option Bastien suggested
You can now also trigger emails being sent via rule so that would probably come in handy: Gmail + Asana App Integration • Asana
You can accomplish this (with most mail tools including Gmail) with a single email account using the “+”, like email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc. One email account, multiple Asana logins allowing unique assignment to companies.
I’ll try to do that, but it would be easier if you could add a (virtual user). Thank you and best regards.
