Reïnstall the "send (private) message functionallity" - starting from a task (hover function)

The send message function disappeared a few weeks ago.

This function was the best possibility to sent “private” message to a collaborator of a certain task. By hovering over the collaborator in the taks pane… you could send a private message.

The private message was received by the collaborator only, and not all other collaborators on the task. The collaborator that received the message saw immediately form which task the comment came… and what he or she should do with it.

This was super efficient-communication in no-time. What is especially interesting when collaborators are working at 50 tasks at the same time…

This was the most interesting way to communicate in Asana and saving a lot of time, because you only needed a few words … an all other information was in the message pane automatically…

This funcitonallity disappeared, and is replaced by … assign task , and view profile… which is … quite useless.

I really would like back the send message fucion… how it was. Or to add the message possiblity in the new layout…

Screenshot of the “new” hover-function?
Send private message related to task is missing…

The functionality did existed until a few weeks ago.
The Hover over functionality for messages is still in the ASANA help on 18-12-2023. But it has been removed… and replaced bij ‘creating a task’ or ‘view profile’

end resulted in a great smart and fast communication (in private messages)
In the following screenshot (from on old mail you can see… the message was kind of task specific. Since the message automatically mentioned… started from… So the receiver of the message immediately understood what the message was about… messages could be incredibly short… and Fast…

This was how we communicate(d) fast until a few weeks ago…

Screenshot of a message (starte from… a task)
The taks was : Topcon - opleidingen. (in this situation)
And it was able to be done without other collaborators being disturbed by this private message functionality…

Yes please!
We used this feature a lot as well because it made communicating much easier.
