Emailing a task with due date


I currently have an email client that produces and sends emails to asana to create new tasks.

It works great.

However there seems to be no way in the info section regarding this kind of integration to format a due date that is applied in the task.

Is this the case? And if not, how or where should I put the date to have the task associate that due date.

Thank you for your time and help


Hi @Cornerstone_Computer! You’re right, as it stands, it’s not possible to set a due date when creating a task via email; you would need to manually set the due date directly in Asana. With that said, here are parameters you can set when creating a task via email:
