Option to exclude Description preview from Asana Bot messages in Slack

Hey y’all!

I have an Asana Rule sending Asana Bot Messages every time a Task changes Sections (status update) to a Slack Channel I’m using to manage a project.

Since the message includes a preview of the Description, the whole Message takes up, like, 20 lines.

I think it would be cool if we could turn off the Description preview so the update just has the Task Assignee, Task Name, the View Task in Asana button, and More Options dropdown—so the whole message is only 3 lines + whatever message I want to add.

(I’ve talked with Slack too, and they said and my Asana support person said this was an integration managed by Asana, but isn’t an option that exists yet!)

I think this would benefit a lot of us, so please send some upvotes my way!


Hi @Paige_Pulaski_Jones, thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback!

Hopefully this is something our Product team can implement in the near future. I’ll keep you posted and let you know if I have any updates here :slight_smile:
