We work on very technical projects, and it would be really nice to see snippets of code properly represented .
Thanks and keep up the good work!
You can have code displayed in a monospace in the task Description and in comments. To do so, highlight the code and press
⌘+Shift+M (Mac) or
Ctrl+Shift+M (Windows). Fortunately, it also keeps the code properly spaced, because both the Description and comments are set to
white-space: pre-wrap. It looks like this:
Just found a problem with using this method. Any URLs added to the monospace text will not take on the monospace format, because Asana auto-creates a link out of it. Relative links will still be monospace, of course, but full links will not.
+1 We just need a dedicated way to add snippets of code, as you requested, @alfonsomoure.
Indeed, I tried the monospace method, @Joe_Thomas. Good to hear that you are with me on this! Hope that Asana’s team is going to be too
Big +1 here! I just convinced our dev team to join the rest of us on Asana, migrating from Jira.
This has been their biggest grumble so far.
+1 to this
Trello uses ‘’’ to enter code
+1 to this as it is a must for engineering teams!
+1 we need this for our account as well!
This feature would be greatly appreciated if implemented, thanks
Wanted to add - Syntax highlighting for common languages would be the icing on the cake
+1 Slack has spoiled developers, it’s a jarring experience without code formatting as a 1st class citizen.
Another +1 on this.
I’d actually love for it to implement Slack style snippets using
back quote for single lines and
... triple back quotes for multi line blocks.
Regular Discord & Slack user here so I definitely agree with you @John_Feustel
As an engineer I would appreciated if you add triple back-ticks and simple back-tick in the comments and everywhere I could input text.
` this is a highlight really similar to Slack does it `
// This is a code block of JS
This is really painful right now for us to communicate properly using Asana.
