Code snippets in Asana

Hi @Katie_Coleman, welcome to the Asana Community Forum and thanks for your feedback! We already have a thread on this topic so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with the main thread to centralize feedback.

Please do this guys. I want to be able to use backticks in the comments of a task and it being displayed as a code block.

THE PEOPLE WANT IT, what are you waiting for??

Have been testing both Asana and Monday for the last week at my company and lack of code snippets is what finally pushed be away from Asana. In particular, that people have been asking for it since at least 2017! If anyone at Asana sees this, feel free to email me if/when this has been implemented, and I would be happy to reconsider using this product

I was trying to figure out how to do markdown or some sort of code blocks when I came across this thread. Unbelievable that time would be put into animated unicorns but not this most basic of features. Please, make it happen.


Don’t forget that time was put into achievements as well! Meanwhile, markdown, task templates, subtasks on the timeline, and not decoupling subtasks when the parent task is copied are all still confounding.

How is this not implemented yet? This is table stakes for a product targeting software teams.


I would also like to see this feature. I mean you can do it here in the discord forum. It shouldn’t be that difficult to copy & paste code snippets, considering that this has been implemented literally in a few dozen libraries and textarea editors!

We are new team migrating to Asana. We like it so far but lack of proper code snippet support is really lacking.
Markdown is supported here in the forum :grin:.


Please add markdown support including language-specific highlighting.


+1. Code blocks inside tasks descriptions and task comments would definitely be a game changer.

Please make this happen. We are evaluating using Asana and I think a veto may be coming. Even linking to a private CodePen would be better than nothing at all.


+1, we need this to work on technical projects.

+++ I think it’s useful not only for technical specialists

+1, we use asana to allow communication between devs and non-devs company wide so that we don’t have to invite everybody to a gitlab server and to use one single task tool. However without code snippet support we have to use different channels to share some short ideas or pseudocode.

+1 we are considering leaving asana due to this stale issue and others like it

Asana is a great tool. If you implement this it would become even better.
Will this feature be available for us to use this summer? :crossed_fingers:

+1. Must have feature.
