This week something changed in email notifications from Asana.
Before this week, if a task was assigned to you, the subject of the message started with “Assigned to You:…” All other email notifications just had the task name followed by the project name in brackets.
As of this week, those tasks not assigned to the user now have “Mentioned you:” before the task and project name. The problem with this is that the comment the email is focused on may or may NOT include a mention of the recipient of the notification. The person may have been mentioned 5 or 10 comments back. So now the subject line is completely misleading.
Here’s an example. This email was addressed to me. But the person mentioned in the comment is Josh.
Why was this change made? Is there a way to roll it back so it’s not so confusing?
