Global Shortcut To Add A New Task MacOS not working

Still can’t seem to find a way to add a new task from anywhere while using a Mac. The CMD/shift/+ doesn’t work, for me at least.

Anyone found a way to do it?

I know I can use Tab-Q while on the app.


ps Also Alfred doesn’t seem to have a working Asana workflow anymore.

Hi @Dan_Acher, welcome to the Asana Community Forum :wave:

Do you have the Asana desktop app open and running while trying to use the CMD/shift/+ shortcut?

Looking forward to hearing back from you :slight_smile:

Hi Rebecca, I do :slight_smile:

Thanks for confirming, @Dan_Acher.

The shortcut should work as long as the setting is toggled on in the desktop app. Could you confirm you have this toggled on?

Yes, it is toggled on in my settings. I’m using MacOs with the latest version.

Cmd-Shift-+ zooms in in my case :roll_eyes: :rofl: what am I doing wrong? Setting is also toggled on.

This is certainly strange, @Dan_Acher! I’d suggest reaching out to our Support team so that they can look into this further for you. You can contact them by following these steps:

Do you have the desktop app open and running? If not, Cmd-Shift-+ will zoom in on your browser window - this is expected :slight_smile:

Sorry I am dumb :man_facepalming: thanks!
