Have you ever embarked on a long flight, and you wished you had offline access to Asana and could create and check off tasks while traveling?
Unfortunately, there’s only a few actions you can take while being offline.
Here’s what you can do, provided you sync it before using it:
Access to any organization
Create a project
See project members
Create a task
Assign task if they are in the project
See previous inbox messages
Archive inbox messages
Load tasks assigned to me
And here’s what you cannot do:
Add people to a project
Assign task if they are not in the project
Search tasks history
See new inbox messages
Load tasks in a project
As you can see, offline use is very limited now. And we haven’t heard about any upcoming updates to this feature being improved.
Maybe, by having a dedicated team for offline tasks that can be synced when online access is available, that can be a workaround to get work done while not having connection.
Hopefully, in the future, we will see progress for offline use, so regular travelers can take advantage of this opportunity to get work done.
What else would you like to be able to do offline? What feature is missing that could be useful to you?
