Turning off Inbox Notifications for applied rules

I couldn’t find any way so far to turn off the notification Asana generates in my Inbox, after applying a rule to a task. If I move a batch of tasks in my project and a certain rule (or more than one) gets triggered, my inbox becomes quite cluttered with notifications.

If there is a way to turn these automatic notifications of, help is highly appreciated :wink: If there is not such a feature, then it would be a great thing to implement :+1:t3:

Thanks for the feedback @Philip_McCreight, I don’t believe there is an option yet to allow you to disable notifications generated by Rules, but I agree it would be super useful, i’ve gone ahead and made a task for the Team who worked on Rules to consider for the next update, I’ll keep you posted here when I have some news!


@Marie That will be great. I am too looking for the same fix to allow my Inbox to be more focused.


Hi folks and thanks for your patience! We just rolled a fix to prevent inbox notifications when you trigger your own Rule!

Hope this helps :slight_smile:


Well that was in fact pretty fast :slight_smile: Thanks, that helps a lot.


Hello, is there a way to limit the number of notifications when someone creates a task that is based on Rules? The automation adds several custom fields at once and it creates clutter in other people’s inbox.

I guess it’s possible to switch off notification related to custom field change or remove collaborators on the task but this is not helpful. Any tips, please?

Thanks, Honza

Yeah, I also find that automated rules add too much noise in my inbox. I don’t need an “Asana rule” notification telling me a task was marked as completed because I moved it in the Done section.

I’d rather prefer to decide whether I want such notification be sent (at the rule level), or a way to “hide forever” that notification so that I can get it once only.
