I’d like to use the Slack integration rules to remind colleagues who aren’t in Asana daily about upcoming and overdue tasks. However, it seems like there are major limitations to both the recipient options and triggers.
Has anyone found a way to make either of the below scenarios work with the Slack integration rules?
- With the “send a direct message” rule, send that DM go to the task assignee.
- With the “send a channel message” rule, use project sections as part of the trigger. For example, only send a channel message for tasks overdue tasks in Section A.
Hi @buffally, welcome to the forum
I’m afraid I’m not that familiar with the Slack integration to help you, but for all it’s worth my advice would be to start at the root of your problem which is to challenge why some of your colleagues don’t check their Asana Inbox daily.
Just like checking email on a daily basis is an ‘unofficial’ convention, the same should apply to Asana.
If you set them the question ‘would you allow a day to go by without checking your email?’ and relate this to Asana, I find that this creates some ‘FOMO’ in case they miss important information in Asana that others are reliant on recieving feedback on - it’s about taking ownership and responsibility to check and take action.
I know this is easier said than done, but I find this the #1 rule to push across organisations using Asana.
