“Team members” is probably the reason my inbox is underutilized. I am my team. In looking at the graphics under “Checking my Inbox”, all the activity items are triggered by other team members and end up in the account owner’s inbox. Since I am task owner with no team, it doesn’t appear that there would be an activity to trigger an inbox notification.
Now on to these pesky notifications… am I wrong to define “push notifications” as an alert from Asana to my mobile device? And the inbox notifications (as in the list of things in the graphic in the link you kindly provided) are considered “inbox stories”? Using these definitions, I still am trying to find out why my phone won’t alert me when I set a due date/time with Asana.
Also you state above:
According to the blog post found here (https://blog.asana.com/2017/04/mobile-app-updates-tags-spotlight-search-1password/), the statement that “all android devices” should receive push notifications is limited to Android N phones. I am not receiving push notifications on my M phone even though they are enabled. Again is this due to the lack of an N phone? Is this because I am both owner and task completer? (no need to notify if person is one and the same)
Are push notifications solely generated by inbox stories? If the task due date/time notification is set by the Project Owner, will only the project members see the inbox story and therefore receive a push notification (assuming they aren’t logged into the web version and have notifications enabled.)?
If that’s the case, then fine. If not, I can’t figure out why I was getting push notifications on my mobile app in the previous version of Asana and not now, as I am using it exactly the same way. Although I have many things entered in Asana, I assign myself to the tasks that are “hot” right now. These show up in the my task window and items with a due date also show up in the calendar view.
I apologize for beating the proverbial horse here. I am trying to run a freelance web studio, teach at a local university and take graduate classes and not lose my mind in the process. I need a trusted system. I need a robust project manager to help me succeed during this crazy busy season. Asana is the best product out there (features, device compatibility, speed mobile/online, and attractiveness) and I just want to make sure that if there are holes, I can find a way to plug them and create my trusted system.
