It would be really great if Asana incorporate intuitive typing to assign tasks and due dates when entering a new task.
This is one of my favorite features in the app I use for my personal life (ToDoist) and makes entering one-off tasks much easier. For example, in ToDoist I type something like “Go pick up parcels at UPS Tue at 8am @travis#errands” and it automatically creates a task “Go pick up parcels at UPS”, sets a Tuesday due date, sets a reminder for 8am, assigns it to myself and adds it to the errands project.
Understanding not all the component of a task can be entered short-hand like the above, but not having to leave my keyboard and just being able to type a running sentence to create tasks, due dates and assignees is a much more seamless experience.
I’d add that the projects available appear the moment you type “#”, and the results start to filter once you start typing. So in practice, typing “#e” + enter on my keyboard selects the errands project .
