While I’m glad you were able to get an answer from @Jason_Woods about your Samsung specific issue, I did want to posit a bit of clarification on how our push notification work, in case other members are having trouble setting push notifications that they expect to be triggered by due date times that are set in Tasks.
This is because the Asana app will “only” generate Push notifications in the following cases:
- Task Assigned to you by someone else
- Task Unassigned from you by someone else
- Task Promoted To the “Today” section (I will explain how this one works below, it might be an interesting one in your case)
- Comments made by someone else
- Task Completed by someone else
- Conversation Added by someone else
Please note that a Task is promoted to the Today section only if it was previously under the Upcoming section as described in this article:
This is probably why folks won’t receive a notification when a task approaches its due date.
One workaround would be to move a task with a due date to the Upcoming section. Once you’ve done this, you will receive a notification when the task is due today. If the Upcoming section doesn’t appear on your device, you will need to mark a task as “Upcoming” via a computer on the Desktop version of Asana first: https://asana.com/guide/help/fundamentals/my-tasks#gl-priority
Hope this helps to clarifies things for our mobile app users with regard to how our Push Notifications currently work!
If members fellow members of our community have a moment, I would encourage them to also take our mobile survey to let us know what features you would like to see in the next version of Asana Mobile:

While we can’t promise anything just yet, we do hope to have updates to this functionality in the near future. Hearing our community’s feedback is essential to bringing us closer to this reality
