Recurring Tasks

Asana makes it easier for Android app users to create recurring tasks. These are tasks that users need to complete on a regular basis. However, people sometimes, or oftentimes, forget. As a result, issues and problems arise. However, this situation can now be prevented by using this new feature. Users can create a recurring task by first creating a new task like any other task.

When specifying the due date, they should indicate that the task should occur either daily, weekly, monthly, or periodically. When the first instance of the task is complete, the app will automatically duplicate the task as a new one. The new due date will be set according to the frequency the user has set it to be.

Edit User Profile Settings

When users take some time off like in a vacation, they usually make sure that the rest of the team is up-to-date with their tasks and other responsibilities. However, people can get excited and forget some duties, such as setting one’s vacation indicator in Asana. This can mislead people and cause some confusion or false assumptions. The latest Android update now allows users to set their status right from their phone. Also, they can edit other profile settings as well.

Users can edit their profile from their Android phone by first tapping the information icon on their My Tasks screen. Next, they should click the pencil icon in the upper right. Users can now slide the switch to turn on their vacation indicator. They can also specify the first and last days they will be out. Moreover, they can also update the information regarding their role, department and on the ‘about me’ section.
