How Well Do You Know Asana2Go?

As part of this special Integrations Edition of Forum Leader Tips, I’m covering an integration I should know better than anybody else—because I created it!

Asana2Go is a free*, 5-star-rated Chrome (and MS Edge, Opera, and Brave) extension that enables you to copy, print, and export flexibly from Asana. It works with all free/paid Asana plans, requires no extra login/authentication, and does not modify/write anything in your Asana.

Asana2Go has a diverse set of features, including some that Asana2Go’s over 10k users may not be aware of!

The Basics: Copy, export, and print from Asana flexibly

  • Key Benefit: Work in Asana to use its full power even when your collaborators do not
  • See your Asana tasks and subtasks in any of 20 standard, innovative output formats, from Eisenhower Matrix to mindmaps
  • Get content out of Asana (for copy/paste, email, PDF, CSV, etc.) or view it differently, either repeatedly or ad-hoc
  • Select tasks or subtasks (even more than 50) to report on from any Project, My Tasks, Search Results, etc.
  • Experts can tweak any standard format or create their own custom ones from scratch using the in-tool authoring environment
  • Quick overview and survey of default report formats (90-sec video clip)

Quickly generate a slideshow: Turn Asana tasks/subtasks into slides with virtually no overhead

Gain productivity: Set a Due date in four keystrokes, multi-home, and triage

  • Key Benefit: Productivity; I use this dozens of times every day to save time and focus
  • Use a customizable keyboard shortcut to quickly and flexibly set Start/Due dates (and optional times) using natural language
  • Optionally triage at the same time to your My Task sections and even multi-home to another project
  • Operate on either tasks or subtasks (even more than 50) selected from any Project, My Tasks, Search Results, etc.
  • Asana’s regular date-setting interface remains available; use either as desired
  • Set dates quickly with Asana2Go (2.5-min video clip)

Install Asana2Go now in a half minute by watching this installation video clip (37 seconds)

Learn more at the Asana2Go website, Asana2Go YouTube channel (demo/how-to videos), Asana2Go Medium publication (including feature explainers), and in the Asana2Go inline Help. For a detailed introduction, watch the 5-min video Asana2Go: What it does and how to use it (and get a bonus peek at an earlier Asana UI!)

I use the slideshow a lot - because I create most of my meetings, and presentations in Asana, so this is a great way to go ahead then and present directly form Asana. I love this extension is actually one of the very few I use.

Can I use it with the desktop app? Or only online?

Welcome, @Leigh_Choate1,

You can only use browser extensions like Asana2Go with the browser version of Asana.

Except for the single feature of setting Due dates and triaging, the bulk of Asana2Go’s functionality is occasional use–when you need it–and I would think that even if you favored the Asana desktop app, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to employ the Asana browser version now and then for some of Asana2Go’s unique outputs.

Thanks,

Larry

Thanks for this response; I’ll take that approach. If I can be more efficient, I’ll use the browser!

Is it possible to export the comments with a task/subtask using Asana2Go into a PDF or table? Thanks

@Jack_Robins, I’m afraid that comments (and attachments) are not available from Asana2Go; sorry. Virtually every other piece of metadata is available from Asana2Go.

Thanks,

Larry

Is there another way of exporting/printing an Asana project that would capture the same visuals?

@Chris_Beltran, Besides Asana’s own Project actions menu > Export/Print > Print, there are many other third-party apps besides Asana2Go and you’ll find them here: Asana Apps and Integrations • Asana

But I’m not sure if any do what you’re asking; maybe someone else knows.

Thanks,

Larry
