I have thought of another workaround - could you set the first words in the message body to reflect the purpose of the email? In my Outlook I have the first line of text visible as a preview. Here are examples of what I currently see:
- completed this task Task
- Thanks in advance,
Interestingly, if I am using the search form at the top of my mailbox (and type part of the first name of a sender), the same email message will display different content as the first line. For example, the line “completed this task Task” changes to one of the “hash” lines when it is displayed in search results.
Regardless, I am aware of emails I receive from mailing lists and newsletter subscriptions that will often have the same text showing in that preview line for every email I receive - something like “view in web browser” or similar. When I open the email message, I cannot see that text in the body anywhere. This suggests to me it is possible to customise an email message to display specific text in the preview lines in Outlook without impacting the display of the message body.
Below are some example lines of text that could be used in Asana emails:
- Assigned to you
- Completed by User
- Comment by User
- File from User
- Comment & File - User
Certainly the current functionality is not adding value by showing me hash values.
