Connected Work Links
Connected Work links provide context and access to related work enabling your team to move fast. Connected Work links serve as a visual indicator that an object (tasks, status updates, messages etc) have been referenced (@ mentioned) elsewhere in Asana. These links are automatically created whenever a user @ mentions a task, status update, message or goal in Asana and will appear in the activity feed of the object that has been mentioned. This helps your team to communicate more reliably and with less effort highlighting where important connections between work already exist, helping teams to see and open objects that they otherwise might have missed. Connected Work links are tagged with a ↔ symbol and can only be seen by users who have access to the object that has been @ mentioned. Users who don’t have access will not see anything.
There is no limit to the number of Connected Work links that can appear in the activity feed. Clicking on a specific connected work link will bring you the task, status update, message, or goal in Asana that has been @ mentioned. Just like other items that appear in the activity feed, connected work links can be deleted manually.
