Hmm tasks I add from Outlook end up in my “Personal Tasks” and not my organization inbox as a new task… is this the expected behaviour?

Emails sent to x@mail.asana.com do end up in my organization inbox as expected


Hi @Mike_Hoefer :wave:t3:

You should be able to choose in which space you want to create your task by clicking on the little cog icon in the top right corner of your screen top open Settings:

And then using the drop-down menu to select your space:

Hope this helps! :slight_smile:


Thanks, I got it working!


Well played @Mike_Hoefer :slight_smile: Thanks for keeping me posted!


Hi. The problem for me is this bit:

I would like all email coming in to be created as a task. And when I enter a comment for it to go to the person who sent the email, and when they reply it comes back in as a comment.


@Laurence_Cope That type of functionality may be best handled by a third party integration like Microsoft’s Apps or Flow, Zapier, or Tray.io. They could handle a workflow that you describe fairly easily. If you want a custom integration or workflow then you would need to get with someone like @Bastien_Siebman.
