Today we’re excited to share that markdown shortcuts are coming to Asana! Markdown is a quick way to format text using some simple syntax, and allowing you to style your text while typing.
Markdown has always been a super popular request in our Community Forum – in fact, it’s currently the second most upvoted #productfeedback post in our community forum, so thanks to all of you who have advocated for this feature and inspiring our team to build it! Please note this is our first shot at markdown, and while this update doesn’t support all markdown shortcuts, we’re hoping to continue developing it in the future.
Here’s the list of markdown shortcuts supported in Asana.

You can now also add a link to any piece of text by “pasting the link” on the text. Here’s how:

- Press control+v to paste.
- Your text is hyperlinked to the link on your clipboard.
Please note that this update is rolling out gradually, it is currently available to 10% of our customers and should become available to everyone over the next couple of days.
