While our organization uses the Slack integration feature, bouncing between Slack and Asana is tedious/inefficient–and communications aren’t centralized. We’d like to replace Slack by utilizing Asana’s Conversations functionality… however there are two features we’d like for this to be effective.
FEATURE REQUEST #1: TEAM NOTIFICATION
When a new comment is entered in Slack, the Channel (comparable to the Team in Asana) shows up in bold. If there’s a new comment you’re tagged in, the name also shows a # notification with how many new, unviewed tagged comments there are. (See screenshot.)
It would be helpful to see a similar, comprehensive visual notification in Asana from the main screen… so at a glance, our management team can see when there’s new Conversation activity going on in which Teams right from the Team menu at the left, and keep a pulse on all activity going on across the organization. Rather than trying to dig through Inboxes etc.
FEATURE REQUEST #2: COMMENT/CONVERSATION SYNC
Team updates and conversations can get lost when a project has a number of tasks and multiple layers of subtasks, and when there’s multiple projects. It would be helpful to have the option that any time a comment is added to a task or subtask, it also shows up in the Conversations feed for the Team and/or Project. All comments could be organized under the same Task or Project header in the feed.
In this way, a Project Manager / Management can easily get a comprehensive snapshot of the activity for a Team and/or Project, and ensure nothing’s missed or lost.
