I get a lot of email from Asana, and some are more important to me than others. I really want to see new comments on tasks, especially if I’m tagged in the comment. But if someone changes the due date, or moves a task to a new column in a board, that’s less urgent.
I would like to be able to use gmail filters to put some notifications at the top of my inbox, and bury others. But Asana makes this hard to do because the emails all look the same - there doesn’t seem to be a foolproof way to identify what type of notification it is. They all have “Assigned to You” in the subject, and a very similar format.
What would really help would be something in the header or body that would clearly identify what prompted the notification. So this could be something like:
- “Notification: New Comment”
- “Notification: Due Date Changed”
Then it would be straightforward to create whatever email filters I wanted based on this.
