Overview
Asana for Gmail helps you turn emails into tasks with assigned responsibilities and due dates, right from within your inbox.
Asana is the best way to manage your tasks and projects, and now you can use it to turn emails into tasks without leaving your Gmail inbox. 

Email is great for communication but it wasn’t built for tracking to-dos or managing projects. When you turn your emails into tasks and track them in Asana with your teammates, everyone knows who is doing what, and by when.

With Asana for Gmail you can
-Turn an email into a task, assign it to yourself or a teammate, set a due date, add it to a project, and include attachments. 
-Track the task in Asana with your teammates as part of project planning
-See any updates to synced tasks made within Asana without leaving email
-Search for and reference existing tasks in Asana without leaving email

Asana is the easiest way for teams to plan, manage, and track their work—so you know who’s doing what by when. It’s free & simple to get started, and powerful enough to run your entire business.  Visit us at www.asana.com

Note for Admins: Google doesn't currently allow GSuite Admins to install Gmail Add-Ons. We will provide an update on this feature as soon as the support is added, and we will update the listing as soon as we're able to offer this add-on to our admin users as well.

It installed! So that is a plus. I come to expect about a 50% success rate when installing and connecting Workspace apps. Over all, the app works OK. I can add emails I get from clients in Gmail to my Asana task. So it does what it says. It would be better if I didn't have to "search" for the project I want to add each task to. It would be much easier if when I added a task a drop down with all my Asana projects would be there to choose from. Typing project names in the search field is tedious and sometimes, I just don't remember the name of the project, so I have to login to Asana to get it, which defeats the whole purpose of this app. Also, I just added a bunch of tasks from my gmail account and counted how many clicks it took get one done. One task takes eight clicks. So this is not an example of efficiency. But like I said, it least if works.

takes 13-14 seconds to load every email thus missing its primary endpoint of saving time.

So far, so good. I do like this Add-on. For the way we do business on our team being able to create tasks from Gmail is great. However, it's fairly minimalist. The having to search for projects or assignees to assign tasks too instead of selecting from a list is (I think) a fairly major miss. Still... 4 stars. It does what it says it does.

There is a loot of things that can be better. For example if I wish to add task to some project I need to search it manually, but it will be much more better if I'll have some list and be able just select from my projects list. If this project still alive, please review the possible UI and functional improvement ways.

Too complicated to add tasks from GMAIL. Have to search for asignee, project etc rather than it recognizing it as you start typing. Can't place in a project category. Also not able to add collaborators etc. Not worth doing it this way. I find it easier to go to Asana and start from scratch.

User Experience is terrible! It takes 150-20 clicks and much longer to create a task using this add on that just opening a new tab and adding it directly on Asana web app. A few suggestions for improving UX. - Show projects list when projects selection is clicked instead of doing a manual project search - Show users list when assignee selection is clicked instead of asking for a manual search - Automatically fill task title and description from email content
