If you are an avid Asana user, you may want to create Asana tasks automatically and simply work in Asana without using your email app. Dossier lets you do this easily through Asana Settings.
You will want to convert email messages from senders to Asana tasks automatically if you want to start using Asana as your email program where you receive and respond to emails. Once emails are in Asana, you can assign them to your team members, prioritize them, and respond to them in Asana.
You must be an org admin to set up automatic Asana sync. Change your role if you are a team member.
Click Apps > Asana > Connect > Settings. Follow directions in the figure below.
Typing in a hint is optional for converting emails automatically. In the box marked When adding a new task, show this hint, you can type in a hint that will be helpful to non-Asana users when creating a task in Asana. This only applies if you are embedding the Dossier sidebar on a web page, allowing visitors to create Asana tasks.
Next, check that senders have been added to workspaces, so that their emails will be published to Asana. Click Workspaces > Inbox and view the list of workspaces that have been created already. Each workspace is a sender’s organization. For example, if jane@clientA.com emailed you, then there should be a workspace named Client A in this list. When you set up your account for the first time, Dossier creates some workspaces based on the senders that you approved.
Dossier brings in emails from all your senders automatically and converts them to Asana tasks. Dossier adds subsequent email replies from recipients as comments in the created task.
If you don’t see the list of senders that you would like to sync to Asana, then click Workspace and view the Recent Activity feed at the right of your screen.
