Project management from your email client? It's possible.

Asana is a project management tool that has exploded in popularity in the last few years. It can help people of all industries better manage projects using different visualizations, including Kanban-style boards, calendar view, Gant charts, etc.

Asana can also help your team reduce the number of meetings because it lets you clearly define task owners and allows a high-degree scoping. And although Asana can also reduce the number of emails you get, you simply can't get rid of them all. Email is by far the most used communications medium in the professional world. Customers, clients, prospects, employees, etc., they all use email.

Email is actually the simplest way to communicate externally with clients. There's no learning curve to beat or onboarding to account for. You simply send email.

So there should be a way to easily add tasks to projects in Asana directly from your email, right? Without the hassle of shifting between apps and trying to match tasks with specific conversations.

Thanks to Missive's integration with Asana, you can add tasks to workspaces and projects from your email client with just a couple of clicks.

Sounds good, but what is Missive?
