Updated mobile apps: notifications & attachments
June 13th, 2013
Today we are releasing updates to our Android and iPhone apps. The new versions are now available in Google Play and the Apple App Store. These new releases include push notifications on Android and the ability to add file attachments in both apps. We hope these updates help you stay better connected to your work while you’re away from your desk.
Android Push Notifications
To ensure you’re always up to date, even when not in the Asana app, we’ve added push notifications to the updated version of the Android app. Just like with Asana iPhone app notifications, we aim to keep you on top of the latest information, while not overwhelming you with updates. So, we only show notifications when you get assigned or unassigned a task, have a task due today, or have comments or task status updates on tasks you’re following. If you’d prefer fewer alerts, just go to app settings, and change which notifications you receive.
Not only do push notifications keep you up-to-date on important tasks, but they also enable you to quickly act on the new information. Tapping a single task notification will take you directly to that task. Tapping on the comment button directly enables you to comment on the task.
Attach files from your phone
With the new Android and iPhone apps, you can now add attachments right from your phone. This new feature is especially helpful for adding screenshots and photos taken on your phone to any task. Just go to the task, tap the attach button at the bottom of the screen, and select the file you’d like to upload.
