How does this automation work?

Automating task creation in Asana from your Gmail account can significantly boost your productivity, especially when dealing with a high volume of emails that require follow-ups or actions. Bardeen's playbook allows you to create tasks in Asana right from the currently opened email, ensuring you keep track of important items without leaving your inbox.

Here's how this workflow simplifies task management:

  • Step 1: Find email content - Bardeen integrates with Gmail to find the content of the currently opened email. It uses the subject line as the task name, ensuring context is not lost when the task is transferred to Asana.
  • Step 2: Create Asana task - With the email content identified, Bardeen then creates a new task in Asana. You will need to specify the Asana project where this task should be added. Managing tasks through Asana helps keep your projects on track.
