You can turn email conversation into action using Asana’s newly brewed Gmail integration. From directly within Gmail, you can now turn an email into a task, assign it to yourself or a teammate, set a due date, add it to a project, and include attachments.
Once an email and a task are linked, any actions taken in either Gmail or Asana will automatically appear in the Asana sidebar in Gmail or the task in Asana.
If you need to reference a task while communicating, you can use the existing task selection to search for a task and see the most current information on the task without leaving your Gmail inbox.
Quite useful for those who use Asana for project planning and use email as a primary communication channel.
