When you create a task or comment offline, a light grey cloud icon will appear next to those which have not been synced, which means they are currently only visible to you. When you are online these changes will sync and your entire team will be able to see the updated tasks, projects, and conversations.
You can also quickly add a task offline. An Add a task… prompt will appear at the top of any list in the app. Add a task, tap your device’s enter button, then start typing your next task.
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 while offline.
Tap and hold the Asana app icon in order to create a new task, access your Inbox or open search directly from your home screen.
These shortcut actions are only available on Android devices with the OS version 7.1 or later.
