Background: I use Todoist for all my personal stuff. Todoist and many other task management apps give the user the ability to quickly enter a task in an inbox (totally different from Asana’s concept of an inbox), in either the desktop or mobile app, where you can go later to set due dates, move a task to a project, etc.
The idea behind this functionality is to enable the user to quickly get a task out of their head and into a device without having to deal with any details. It’s the GTD concept of an inbox.
Unless I’m missing something, Asana doesn’t allow for this. Yes, I can create a task without a due date or project. But to “process” these tasks later, I need to scroll down through hundreds of tasks with due dates to get to the “Later” section, then keep scrolling down to “No Project.” (I have also never understood the concept of “marked for today/upcoming/later” either, but that’s a separate issue.)
This seems like a really clunky way to process tasks that need dates, projects, etc. I use this “inbox” functionality in Todoist dozens of times a day. Am I missing something with Asana? Thanks.
