At Asana, we’re big on helping organizations cut back on busywork and increase efficiency. This month, we’re proud to introduce a set of new features designed to help teams take back time and focus on what matters—even in a distracted world.

Leave no comment behind with Asana’s Google Drive integration

Today, we have so many tools at our disposal. But it’s tough to keep track of critical information when work is scattered across multiple platforms, documents, and stakeholders. According to Asana’s 2022 Anatomy of Work Global Index, employees switch between nine apps per day—leading to less efficiency and missed messages.

There is a better way to stay up to date on the team’s notes and feedback. With Asana’s improved Google Drive integration, you can now receive comment notifications from Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides within Asana—without losing time and mental energy toggling between tools.

Start your work week off strong with a focus of the week

Keep your highest priorities top of mind by setting a focus of the week through our mobile app. Your weekly focus will appear as a guide on your My Tasks page, so you can organize your work with intention and prioritize more effectively.
