HotKey to ceate Asana task on Mac at any time, from any app (Quick Entry)

It is very inefficient to have to go to the Asana app to add a task. Other programs (Omnifocus) have a hot-key (Opt-Cmd-O) which open up a “quick entry” box where you can enter the task, what project it’s in, assign it, and a delivery date. You can do this from literally anywhere on the Mac - whether you’re on the desktop, in an app, in the Omnifocus app, or anywhere.


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

Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback!

While this feature isn’t available at this time, hopefully it’s something our Product team can implement in the future.

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if we have any updates :slight_smile:


As an Asana user, I want to be able to dump an idea or task into Asana without ever switching my screen so that I can quickly get back into my workflow.

this would be super

seems this feature is available now in the Mac desktop app?!
But it is not working for me.

Could you pls clarify that?
Best, Steffen


@Steffen_Liermann :exploding_head: yep. Sure enough. That now works. I’m about to dive into how it works.

I’m delighted to see that feedback is taken!
I used the shortcut many times/day :slight_smile:
