I absolutely adore Asana, but here is my TOP PET PEEVE with Asana after being an extremely committed user since 2012
What is the reasoning that by default all new project members get updates about new task creations? This seems like a super rare situation where someone would want to get those notifications. There’s actually only one case I can think of: I am a project manager and I live and breathe one project and want to know everything that happens within it.
But besides that scenario, when would someone ever want to get updates about ALL task creations within a project? It’s totally information overload for 98% of people. Asana is normally all about reducing noise and allowing people to be in control of the messages they receive, and yet somehow this is enabled by default.
It’s difficult for a casual Asana user to understand what’s generating these notifications and how to turn them off. I suggest leaving that check box “unchecked” by default!
