Quickly create tasks from a mobile Android device using IFTTT

Hey everybody, Luke here.

I recently wrote out some documentation for a workaround I made for more quickly creating tasks inside of Asana from my mobile device and wanted to share it here if anyone else was interested.

Sometimes the mobile Asana app take a little while to load up and it just doesn’t seem to be configured for quickly creating notes/tasks while keeping them organized.

  • Step 1. Create a private (to you) Asana project inside of the “General” team and name it “IFTTT”.

  • Step 2. Download IFTTT from the Google Play Store and create a new account.

  • Step 3. Add and enable this trigger on your IFTTT account and set the target of the trigger to your “IFTTT” project inside Asana. This tells IFTTT exactly where to send tasks made using this widget to.

  • Step 4. Create a home-screen widget for IFTTT from your phone. It will then prompt you to pick what task to tie the widget to, select the Asana trigger you’ve just set up.

  • Step 5. You can now use that home-screen widget to quickly create and send tasks to Asana within seconds. Once you’re on a desktop, you can move them around as needed to keep things organized. You’re all finished!

I hope this is helpful! :slight_smile:
