I’d like to second this suggestion. In an ideal world, everyone would check their “My tasks” routinely as Alexis suggestions. But, two things:
- We have guest users who own tasks but are only casual Asana users. I’d like them to be reminded via email and directed back to Asana.
- If you have your “My Tasks” sorted by “None” (as I do) rather than “Due Date”, your overdue tasks do not appear at the top of the list unless they are flagged to be worked on “Today”. I have to do a check every so often to re-sort my tasks by Due Date to make sure nothing slipped through the cracks, but not everyone on the team is as diligent. I prefer “None” as my default view so that I can re-organize my daily tasks in priority order, which is not possible when sorted by Due Date.
In the meantime, we have written a simple Python script to extract overdue scripts and email the list to the owner. The downside (aside from the additional time to write and maintain the script) is that it runs under my user account so only notifies people on projects I’m also on, and doesn’t “see” tasks they haven’t tagged to a project.
Anything that can help keep casual users on task (and avoiding my clunky Python workaround) would be greatly appreciated!
