New Chrome Asana extension - WOO HOO! I was using the old one that just let you make new tasks.
With this extension you can see your incomplete tasks, mark them as complete and add new tasks.

I believe I saw this one too last night when I was out in the chrome web store searching for the Asana extension created by Asana, Inc. I liked some of the features that the "other" extensions listed. I especially liked the chrome extension that had notifications enabled for Asana. I'm always a bit hesitate of installing rogue developer extensions.

Any good way to view a last of tasks that share the same tag -- WITHOUT having them grouped by projects? You would think there would be a way to turn off the projects grouping, but if there is, I can't find it.

With some of the tags I use, it would be more convenient to:
(1) see more tasks on a single screen -- having project names + blank lines between projects takes up about half the screen,
(2) be able to quickly see how many tasks are on the tag list -- but the numbering is not consecutive when it is grouped by projects.

Not the biggest deal in the world, but a minor annoyance.  Thanks.

Also, if you integrate into instagannt and then add them to a project grouping, you can see tags across the projects in a calendar view.

Hi everybody,
is it possible to have multiple organizations/workspaces and that the "my task"-sections covers all tasks of all the orgs/spaces?

At the moment, every workspace has an own "my tasks"-section which does not let me see all i have got do in one place. Do i oversee something there?

Thx
Flo

Any idea how to turn off the "Consider updating your project status" updates? 

How dare they create tasks without my permission. :)

....but seriously it's annoying. Any ideas?

I found one link that worked.

And grabbing a few twitter posts is not making an article. There should be a very clear walkthrough how to turn these incredibly annoying notifications off!!! I have got them for years now and I am so sick of it!

Using the Inbox in Asana is the best way to keep track of what is happening with the projects and tasks you're involved with. While you an optionally get an email, the Inbox in Asana helps to provide the additional context, and the content doesn't get lost in a sea of emails.

Is there a way to print just a "Section" of a project?

+Jeremy Roberts I did that on day 1 :-)  I used to have a different "Personal Project" for each of my divisions to keep track of things I want to remember/discuss.  It was to disconnected  so I made one project with each Section for a division.   When going into meetings it would be useful just to print their section.  Thanks for the confirmation +Mike Vardy

Small tool to create task board cards out of the asana csv export file:
https://github.com/bomultimedia/asanacsv2taskcards/tree/master

The tool requires the name of the task to be in the following form:
BUG|PBI|QA|DOC|DEV<priority>(severity)[effort]:Name of the task

If the name is in this form it would print a red/orange/yellow/green/blue card otherwise the card would be printed in gray.

The priority would be set in the top left corner, the severity in the top right and the effort in the bottom right corner of the card.

Just released a set of free power tools for Asana. Thought you folks might find it useful:

- Quick-add tasks similar to the official Asana Chrome extension but with more task fields (projects, tags, assignee, followers, etc).
- Copy and move tasks across workspaces.
- Sync asana projects with GitHub repos, comments and all.

It's in beta so any feedback/request is welcome and appreciated!
Asana power tools - quick add, copy, move and sync.

I like Asana's Chrome browser button, and particularly the ability to instantly save a webpage URL as an Asana task.

I can't find the same browser button when using Chrome on my Android tablet. Right? Or am I just missing it.

Thanks.

A unique email for each project can be created within asana. You can then add that to your contact list.

This article: http://asanews.co/turn-off-consider-updating-automatic-tasks/ doesn't answer my question. How do I turn off "Consider updating your project status"? Can anyone explain?
You can do this in the project overview! Asana on Twitter

OK. I took a break from Asana for a few months, and while I was gone some of the furniture was rearranged. No more predefined searches at the bottom of the search field? I'm not seeing any -- just want to confirm that it's not just a glitch on my end. 

How do we now do a search for tasks that have not been assigned to a project? I tried putting "none" "not" or "unassigned" in the "In Project" field, but not finding a way to generate a list of tasks not associated with a project.

Thanks.

Hi Everyone - I did a quick search of the help site but couldn't find this.  Is there a way to make/move an existing Task the subtask of other?

You can open task A, and drag and drop task B in the subtasks sections. Or use my other trick.

Another Asana Theme Customisation

You can easily change styles for Asana using a very handy extension for Google Chrome (maybe available for other browsers) called 'Stylish'.  It allows you to write your own styles and apply them to the website of your choice, given you a look you might prefer. All you need to do is understand some simple CSS and you're away.  Here is a quick guide:

1. In Google's available extensions, search for 'Stylish' and click install.
2. Once installed click the 'S' looking icon normally top right of the browser.
3.  In the Stylish options you should click 'Write new style'.
4.  Add a name for the style so you know what it's for later.
5.  In the 'code' section add your CSS code i.e. this piece of code changes the background image:

body {
background-image: url(enter a url to an image here) !important;
}

6. In the 'Applies to' select 'URLs on this domain' and in the field enter 'asana.com' (without the quotes).
7.  Click 'Save' on the left hand side and when you view Asana the styles you've chosen should be visible (or just press refresh on your browser).

Note: The css code above will require a full url to an image for it to load. I've not tested it on local files but may work too.
