Email to specific task on Asana

Also an upvote here.

It would be great if I could use asana as documentation of the progression of work. This however would require that I could BCC emails as comments to tasks, like you can in pipedrive.

All the best, thanks for a great tool

While using Asana, I need to Update ASANA Task on a meeting. Now I have created that task, which I created my self. Since I created, I didn’t get any email from ASANA, saying that FROM EMAIL is the email address for that particular task.

I think ASANA should develop an interface by which we could just COPY the Email Address of that particular tasks, and use them in email to send the email and in turn ASANA would update the email in Comments section of ASANA.

Fingers Crossed for this feature implementation.

Your competitor Wrike has this feature, Asana NEEDS to have this. Basically each task has its own email address (example: and if you CC that email it comes onto that task as a comment. I really like Asana and would love to keep using it but this is something that is necessary not only for our business (accounting) but evidently many others as well

Thanks @Khizer_Daya

Asana has this feature, but ASANA doesn’t provide the email address to the task created by me. It does provides the email, if someone comments on it. and I get an email from ASANA.

From then on, if I reply to that email, comments would be auto added in that particular task. Just that, unless you create tasks and no one comments, you can get email addresses for now.

Fingers crossed for implementing it.

I have not reviewed the whole thread because it is very extensive and I have done a diagonal reading, but if I am not wrong, this issue is resolved, not exactly as requested by @Shai_Shapira but with the official asana add-ons for Outlook.

In my Outlook (Windows and Mac) I have installed two official asana add-ons.

  1. Create asana Task
  2. Open asana add-in

Create asana Task
As the name implies, create a new task from an email

Open assana add-in
This addon allows you to do two things
A / Create a new task (White button)
B / Search Task (Blue button) (search task offers the option to comment on a task with the selected email)

I think that was the goal of @Shai_Shapira when he opened the thread, right. It’s not like he says with an email address, but I use the option to search for homework and comment with email every day and it works extremely well.

I know that it is not exactly what was requested, to comment via an email link per task, but I think this option is also perfectly valid and functional

Unfortunately, the Outlook Add-In requires that you are using Office 365 Professional for E-mail. On-Premise/Self-Hosted Cloud Exchange servers are not supported :frowning: That doesn’t help the large percentage of businesses that use Exchange Server and have no plans to use Office 365.

Nonetheless, the Outlook Add-in looks great for those who can use it.

My long term product Sendana, can use any email system within Outlook. You should take a look.

Hi James,

I love Sendana, and would love to implement it in my organisation. We’re based in Germany though, and many of us would be more comfortable with a German version of Sendana.

I’d be happy to help with translating the front end. Please let me know if that’s an option for you.

Unfortunately, we do not have plans for other languages at this time. I can check with my developer though.

Thanks for the repy @James_Carl! I’m glad to help when it comes to the actual front-end translations. Your developer would just need to adjust the files afterwards
