Custom fields in tasks generated over email

Hi,

I have a custom field in my project, and I want to send emails that automatically get converted to tasks in this project. On this page (https://asana.com/guide/help/email/email-to-asana), I’m only seeing space to specify task description, task name, assignees/collaborators, and attachments - no custom fields. Can you please me how to go around this issue?

Welcome to the Community Forum @mansij56!

It’s currently not possible to add custom fields when you create the task emailing to Asana. you can upvote for this feature here: Parse emails to populate custom fields

As a workaround, I’d recommend you using our Forms feature and when you submit your form and select all your fields, the tasks will be created including the custom fields.

I hope this helps, have a nice day! :slight_smile:
