    Once in your project, select "Add task".
    Give your task an actionable name.
    Assign this task to whomever will be responsible for it. You can only assign a task to one person.
    Select who will be responsible from the drop down menu. Once a task is assigned to someone, they will receive notification about the task from Asana as long as they have been previously added to the project.
    Then add a due date for the task.
    You can type in a date or select from the drop down calendar.
    You can also choose to add a specific time to the task due date.
    Selecting a time is an option but not necessary.
    Complete as much information as possible in the task fields. This ensures whomever the task has been assigned to will have the information required.

    To Move a Task Between Sections

    To move a task to a specific section of the project, click "Move tasks between sections" next to the task you would like to move.
    Select which section you would like to move the task to and the task will move to that section.
    You will fill in as many fields as possible. Think of the task as an email being sent to whomever it was assigned to: Task name = subject of email Assignee = recipient of email Due Date = add a start and due date whenever possible Status = where are you in the process of completing this task Description = body of email Attachments = same Followers = anyone CC'd on the email Comments = replies to the email thread

    How to Create a Task Option 2

    Tasks can also be created in already existing section. Select the plus sign next to the section where you would like to task to be created.
    The same blank task that we filled in previously will pop up with the same options. For more task options, select the side arrow next to the task.
    A side bar will pop open with the same fields options for task information plus some additional options.
    You will fill in as many fields as possible. Think of the task as an email to whomever the task has been assigned to: Task name = subject of email Assignee = recipient of email Due Date = add a start and due date whenever possible Status = where are you in the process of completing this task Description = body of email Attachments = same Followers = anyone CC'd on the email Comments = replies to the email thread
    If more information is required than is available in the task title, utilize the task description.
