Global Shortcut To Add A New Task

#1

Can we have a global shortcut to quickly enter a new task (like clicking on + > Task). Enter is not an option for me.

Hi @Amadeus_Paulussen,

Have you tried TAB+Q?

If he’s wanting a global shortcut. Tab + Q is not a good option as it only works if you’re already in Asana.

Meanwhile I got used to switching to the app and hitting TAB+Q. Thanks guys!

If you’re on a Mac, and have Alfred, you can use that to add tasks to Asana. Alfred has a global shortcut.

TAB-Q is not well documented. I only found it when looking for the place to vote for creating it. If you Ctrl-F for “task” on https://asana.com/guide/help/faq/shortcuts, you don’t find it (because “New Task” is Enter).

An easy fix would be to change “Quick Add” to “Quick Add (new task)” or similar on that page.
