Getting Gmail forwarding confirmation code

I’m confused about the process of setting up a filter in GMail to automatically forward certain messages to Asana. When GMail sends a confirmation code to the forwarding address (x@mail.asana.com), it uses a google.com address. So how can I see the confirmation code GMail requires?

Thanks! Seems like I’m overlooking something pretty basic…

Hi @Mark_Ganem
I don’t think you can. The x@mail.asana.com is a generic address that depending on the sender it determines which User to add the task to.
Assuming you already have your Gmail account as a registered email account in Asana.

Sorry can’t be much help.

Hi Jason, thanks for your reply! The Asana Guide topic “Turning Emails into Asana Tasks” suggests this is possible (https://asana.com/guide/help/email/email-to-asana#gl-forwarding) and even provides a link to gmail forwarding instructions. See screenshot:


Perhaps I’m mis-understanding this?
