What is Gmail?

Gmail, an email service provider, is part of Google Workspace–a set of productivity and collaboration tools that helps individuals, teams, and businesses stay on top of everything.

Why Gmail + Asana?

Capture tasks without leaving Gmail

With the Asana for Gmail integration, you can create Asana tasks directly from your Gmail inbox. Any tasks you create from Gmail will automatically include the context from your email, so you never miss a beat.

Easily search for Asana tasks

Need to refer to an Asana task while composing an email? Instead of opening Asana, use the Asana for Gmail add-on to simply search for that task directly from your Gmail inbox.

Take action

Whether you create or search for a task, you can comment, like, or complete it from Gmail as well so you don’t lose action items in your inbox.

Automate processes by combining Rules and Gmail

Remove bottlenecks by automatically sending emails from your Gmail account using Rules.

Combining Rules with Gmail allows teams to automatically send emails from an account when certain project parameters are met. Teams can go from manually sending emails to choosing triggers that automatically send out an email to your chosen recipients.
