Looking for some feedback for some integration I’ve built between Microsoft Outlook and Asana. The integration allows you to do several things from within the Outlook client:
- View tasks.
- Update tasks (title, description, due date, and status).
- Add comments to a task.
- Create new tasks.
There are other applications that do this already, but what we do differently is try to take the guess work out of determining the project / task that an email is associated with. You can setup a member list (both Asana users and external contacts) for a particular project. So assume you are working with Jeff from ABC Inc. on a new website engagement. You can add Jeff as a member of the project. Any emails that Jeff sends you will automatically open up the website project in Asana.
We try to tackle all of the core operations you would perform on a task. We also provide an ability to launch to the full Asana interface, taking you directly to the task. This all saves time from attempting to locate the right item in Asana.
Please check out some of our videos:
The videos show Visual Studio Team Service, but our application works with VSTS, Basecamp, and Asana. We are also working on integrations with other project management systems. Consider a consulting practice that is forced to work outside Asana because of their client preference for example, you can link all of these systems together inside Outlook.
We are just starting up but want to move fast! If there is any feedback, questions, etc. that you have, please let me know. There is a version of the app that is free and provides read-only access for all functionality. Please do not pay for the subscription. Instead message me and I can you free access to get us some initial feedback.
You can get started with the app here:
Thanks in advance for your support!
