How to be notified when a task I assigned another person is overdue


We work in a team environment where we are often assigning tasks to other team members and are finding that tasks are slipping through the cracks as the people who are assigned are seeing it is overdue but not the person who assigned it to them. This would be helpful to trigger a follow up. I couldn’t find a clear way to do this with rules as there was not option to have the assigner be notified.

Also hoping to avoid this being a rule we need to create for every single task and more of a default setting.

Anyone come across this?



I don’t believe you can have a rule (not natively in Asana anyway), however you can create a search (tasks assigned by me, incomplete and overdue) and you can have a daily task telling you to check the results of this search…
