Turn emails into trackable, actionable work with Asana for Outlook.
As action items come in via email, like reviewing work from your agency or a request for design assets from a partner, you can now create tasks for them in Asana right from Outlook. You can then assign the new task to yourself or a teammate, set a due date, and add it to a project so it’s connected to other relevant work. To turn the email into a task, simply click Create Task in the Outlook top bar.
Once you've connected Outlook with Asana, you can use Rules to automatically trigger actions on Asana tasks created from Outlook. Learn more about Rules.
Your entire team probably isn’t copied on every email chain that includes information they need to do their jobs. But without these details and context, they can’t effectively do their work. Now you can add the email to an existing Asana task as a comment right from Outlook by clicking Related Tasks in the Outlook top bar, searching for the task you’d like to add the email to, and then click Attach Message.
