Push notifications

If you have notifications for your Android device turned on, you will receive push notifications for the following actions:

  • A task has been assigned to you
  • A comment has been posted on a task you've been assigned or are collaborating on
  • A task you've been collaborating on is marked as complete
  • A task you've been assigned is due (sent around midnight on the day of the task's due date)
  • A message or status update is posted in a team or workspace that you belong to
  • An attachment has been added to work you're collaborating on

When you select the Asana icon from the top of your phone to see your notifications, you will find them batched. Pinch and expand to see more info, or tap through to your Asana Inbox.

By default, push notifications are turned on.

Managing your push notifications

To access your push notification controls, tap on the Push icon from your account tab. From the next screen, you can toggle on and off the selected push notifications.

Using Asana offline

You can use Asana for Android offline to check your notifications, comment on tasks and messages, change due dates or assignees, and complete tasks on the go.

Use Asana offline to:

  • Create tasks, messages, or projects
  • Assign tasks
  • Set due dates
  • Add or remove collaborators
  • Add or remove tags
  • Add or remove tasks from projects
  • Complete tasks
  • Delete tasks
  • Like tasks, messages, or notifications
  • Add or delete comments
  • Invite teammates
  • Archive or unarchive stories in your inbox

Asana offline

When you create a task or add a comment offline, a light grey cloud icon will appear next to those that have not yet been synced. This means they are currently only visible to you. These changes will sync when you are next online, and the updated tasks, projects, and conversations will be visible to teammates with the relevant permissions.

A tally at the bottom of the app counts the actions you’ve performed offline. When you're online again, the pending number will count down until all your updates are live in Asana, and the grey cloud icons will disappear.

Tasks and conversations within a project that have never been opened on your app before will not be visible offline, but you can add tasks to these projects offline.
