How to Import Tasks from Asana

lee_branch

Lee Branch, founder of Intently Digital, recently emailed us a simple tip for importing tasks from Asana, and suggested we post it, as he’d been struggling to figure it out. So, here’s what Lee suggested:

Basically you select a project, then highlight all tasks in that project.
The do CMD +C (new to macs, basically the copy keyboard shortcut – CTRL+C on a PC)
This pops up an overlay of all the tasks which you can highlight/copy/paste as plain text :-)

Hopefully someone finds this useful!

Update: Lee made a video demonstrating how it works.

WorkFlowy for Android

WorkFlowy’s new Android app has offline support for Android and a snappy new logo. Get it on the Google Play Store

The app uses our mobile web interface, but we’ve done a lot to make that smoother in preparation for this release. We’re hoping eventually to support all Android devices, and are sad that KitKat isn’t supported on more. For this we are saddened and sorry :/ But we’re happy to have something out there.

And you’ll be happy to know that this was the most requested feature in our recent poll of what our users wanted most. We started working on it the day after the poll, so thanks for the feedback.

 

Is This How Links Should Work?

A user wrote us suggesting that we need a better interface for linking to content within WorkFlowy. He also included the mockup above (click to see full resolution image), which I quite like, and fits well with how I’ve imagined this working.

What do you think? Is the approach in the mockup good for linking to content with WorkFlowy?

We get tons of feature suggestions, but we really love it when users send concrete mockups for interface problems we’re thinking about. If you do interface design, send us mockups of your ideas!

Why no blogging from WorkFlowy? Babies!

Some people have been complaining in the comments that I haven’t been blogging. “How could you possibly be so busy as to not blog at all? Not even a word?” They ask.

As WorkFlowy’s resident blogger, I’ve been asking myself related questions. For example: “Who could go two months without trimming their beard? How long has it been since I showered? What day is it? Why am I hallucinating from sleep deprivation?”

Well, the answer to all these questions is the same: twins.

My wife and I had twins at the beginning of February. It’s a lot of work taking care of two babies who don’t want to sleep. Last night I went to bed at 5am. I’m struggling to get the few hours of work in per day that I’m able, and just haven’t had time to blog.

However, I do like blogging! Since starting it at the end of last year, after threatening to abandon it, I’ve enjoyed it, and realized that it is a nice way to connect with people who use WorkFlowy. So, now that we seem to be getting at least some sort of handle on parenting, I’m gonna try to start posting again.

Wish me luck!

Note for Concerned Readers: The blog had been getting a lot of spam comments, because I turned off comment moderation knowing I wouldn’t have time to moderate with the babies. I just turned moderation back on, and went through and removed all the spam. Now, you can comment freely after a first comment has been approved. Sadly, you’ll be getting fewer links to great real estate opportunities , but the comments will be more relevant to WorkFlowy.
