Find task in Asana and then add a comment – Is this even possible? I'd pay 💵 for it.


Recommended Posts

Hi dear Alfred people!

This is my first post, even though I've been using Alfred Workflows for many years now.

 

I'm on a journey to easily integrate my ever expanding number of client communication channels into my task management workflow. After trying really many systems I give up – almost! Finally I thought: Wait a moment, there's one tool that might hold the power to solve that issue.

 

What I dream of:

  1. I copy text (or maybe even an image!?) from anywhere (mail, whatsapp, skype, slack, etc.)
  2. I open Alfred and start typing to find the task
  3. Fuzzy search results show Asana tasks
  4. I decide for one of them and that's it: My content is pasted as a comment into that task.

 

I'm no coder, I don't have the patience or time. But I would pay somebody to solve that for me. Let's say US $ 200,– ?

Very kind regards

Tobi

I looked into it, and it's not so clear what you're asking. As far as I can tell from Asana's API docs, there are no "comments" on tasks.

 

Without a more detailed description of exactly what you want, I'm hesitant to say I'll build you the workflow for a fixed price because there's a good chance that the workflow wouldn't be what you wanted and you'll want it changed.

 

If you can be more specific, then I will make it for you.

Hi @deanishe, thanks for looking into it.

 

But I'm not sure, what your mean. If I go to the link you provided and search for "comment", I get 64 hits on the page, mostly in this section about how to create a task's story and in the definition of the story. I think in their terminology, the "comments" within a certain task form its "story".


Also, have a look at the attached image. This is what a typical task looks like with all its comments.

Does this make it more clear?

Right, yes. The API calls comments "stories".

It's generally not very clear what you're asking for (particularly in terms of the way the API works). You can't just get a list of all tasks from the API, but rather only tasks within a workspace or within a project (within a workspace), or tasks assigned to you.

 

So can projects be ignored, or should they also be shown? E.g.

 

Title of Task
Name of task's project/workspace/both

 

What about sub-tasks? Should they also be listed or be ignored? What about completed tasks?

Ah, I see. Right.

 

My idea is to get all uncompleted tasks and uncompleted subtasks of uncompleted tasks within all projects of one certain workspace.

(If nothing can be found it'd be great to have the option, to create a new task. But I understand this is a totally different scope, so never mind.)

 

Does that work for you or shall we document things more detailed?
