A picture is worth a thousand words; we feel similarly about hearts in Asana. Hearting a task or comment can say, “Great idea!” “Awesome work!” or just “Thanks!” We’ve always thought there’s room for emotion in work (we also just introduced emojis in Asana). Using the heart icon is one of the easiest ways to interact with your teammates in Asana. Hearts are also a good way for teammates who might be new to the app to dip their toes into using Asana as a communication tool for their work (hint: share this with them).
You can heart tasks, attachments, comments, or Inbox stories from Asana on the web or mobile to quickly share enthusiasm, approval, or general. Not unlike the Like or thumbs up buttons you’re familiar with in consumer apps, a heart in Asana also generates an Inbox story, notifying task followers.
