Please improve the inbox section. It is horrible to have to scroll down dozens of messages to find comments on a specific project, let alone finding which ones are new and which ones are old. On top of that, there’s no search for the inbox section only, so every time I make a search, all this task results come up, but I’m looking for comments not tasks.
Here some ideas I think might make this easier:
Categorize the inbox:
What about creating a section for projects and then within that each project shows how many notifications it has?
Also a section for “tasks assigned to me”. I cannot explain how much I would love a section like this. I have missed so many tasks assigned to me because they don’t appear on my board (i.e. a project board I created for myself because I don’t like to see the tasks in a list and I like to move from ‘to do’ to ‘in progress’ like on a scrum board). I also don’t like that even if I go to my tasks, these assigned tasks look like if they were tasks I created for myself so I don’t notice they’re new/assigned. Can they have a colour or something?
Identifying new messages:
The little orange dot tells me there is new messages but how many? I have to scroll down and check everything until I remember what was the last thing I read. Don’t like that at all. Why there isn’t something to mark messages as read, or just change the colour of the messages when they’re new and unread, that’ll make things easier.
I think email clients have a very good way of helping people organize and identify one’s messages. I think you can get some ideas from there too. When one is managing too many projects, your current inbox doesn’t help. That’s the only reason why I still send emails and haven’t completely move my whole messaging to Asana.
I know there are many threads about this topic but just wanted to make sure Asana reads this.
Hope we get a solution soon.
