    I’d love to plan my day using a native android app while I’m offline on the subway…
    • Emily Kramer
      We are working on improving our mobile apps, stay tuned!
      • Erjon
        Awesome can’t wait! I love Asana but i definitely dread using it on my iPhone.
      • Francisco
        That is awesome.Could you also work on triggers. The capability of designing tasks within projects that will trigger once previous task is completed?
      • ahue
        Awesome! The lack of a beautiful and efficient Android app is the only thing that keeps me (and my collegues) form using asana in a productive environment. Keep up the great work :-)
      • Lester Hein
        Agreed, one of the main frustrations I have is that I can’t trust Asana on my mobile :(
    • Jorge Cerda
      Offline/Online sync would be a great addition to the mobile app.
  • Артур
    Переведите asana на русский язык. Очень нравится!

    Translate asana in russian, please!

  • Camden
    Great video – thanks for doing this.

    I would love to be able do this from the iOS app — that’s my best way to process a task queue like this.

    Thanks for all you do!

  • Scott Rubin
    Thank you for this video. It really helps to see all the possibilities of Asana and to see examples of a possible workflow.
    • Emily Kramer
      Thanks Scott, we will be creating similar videos regularly so you can see even more workflows and use cases. Anything specific you’d like to see a video about?

    a developer has released an ipad app that syncs with Asana and the user interface is very similar to the native web app asana. While asana boys are developing their native app for ios and android, I think it’s a good alternative for those who use ipad. You can find it in the app store.
  • Yury
    Dear Emily will there be any other languages available soon?
  • Sheehan Alam
    We have a pretty fantastic My Tasks view in our native mobile app, Tappsana for Asana

    I would like to see a time stamp as well as the due date. I am using tags right now but something to put due by 10am.

    Another option is I use the link to calendars a lot to assign work to guests. If the task is going to take 2 days I have to put in two seperate tasks to account for the 2 days. It would be great to be given the option to say how many days the task will take so it would populate multiple days on the linked calendar.

    • Hermann
      +1 for that!
    • Sara Himeles
      Thanks for the suggestion Daniel! You can send these to asana.com/support in the future.
    • Alex Zlatin
      You can use subtask to track it (i.e. subtask1: Day1 & subtask2: Day2).
      You can also use headings (or priority tasks, as this is the strange name given to them by the Asana team (-:) outlining hours if you need hour tracking.
  • Daniel
    The blog and the updates are great!!! Asana has really organized my office and we finally know what everyone else is doing. Keep up the good work.
  • Tim Stringer
    Thanks for the video!

    It would be great to have the ability to specify start dates in Asana. Among other things, this would make it possible to have things automatically appear under Today when appropriate.

    • Sara Himeles
      Thanks Tim! Please send these requests to asana.com/support.
      • Tim Stringer
        Thanks Sara! I just submitted this feature request.
    • Kenny Van Zant
      Tim – great suggestion for start dates. We’re thinking on that. But the auto-promotion of tasks to upcoming or today already works, if you set a due date. We even did a specific blog post on that a while ago: http://blog.asana.com/2012/12/automatic-task-promotion/

      Let us know if that helps your current workflow.

  • Chris McCorkle
    This video is encouraging me to add more than just daily tasks to Asana… thanks for a great product.
  • Barry Whitlow
    The only hold-back from me making ASANA my “rest of life” task-project management tool is a quality iPad mobile app.
    • Kenny Van Zant
      It’s definitely on our roadmap.
  • Bjoern Sjut
    Thanks – I think the video does quite a good job on explaining the main prioritization concepts.
  • Ido
    What about an iPad app?
  • alex
    “Today” is cool feature but if you’re boss how you can put in your personal TODAY list task from you teammates?
    • Sara Himeles
      Hi Alex! We can help with this. Can you send your question to asana.com/support?
      • alex
        Of course! Thank you!
  • Peter S
    Your screencast are absolutely astonishing. What software are you using to record them? If it’s not a secret.
  • Dmitriy
    Nice video. What song is in the background? …sounds awesome.
