Handle your Tasks with ease – with TaskControl for Asana!
TaskControl for Asana allows you to use your favorite project management tool as native macOS App. TaskControl for Asana stays in your Dock Menu – and is ready when you need it. Also after activating the Asana API connection from the preferences it provides you a badge counter on your Dock Icon. You decide what to show: All your tasks, tasks within the actual week, within the next three days or just tasks of today.
TaskControl for Asana also provides a small Status Bar Menu where you can access all your assigned tasks from all your workspaces at one time. A very nice overview – Asana itself do not provide an overview like this (over multiple workspaces). The tasks get indicated with orange (new assigned), grey (due date within this week), blue (due date today) and red (due date yesterday or earlier). Also you can set a task as completed, a new due date, assign other team members or even write and read comments on that task! It's a really huge benefit for working with Asana.
Lightning fast access to all your tasks!

Ratings and Reviews
Great “desktop” version of Asana’s online interface, but notifications don’t work.
This is a great “desktop” 1:1 version of Asana’s online interface, but notifications don’t work. I get the notification sound, but no notificatations are displayed on screen. I have set the notifications within Notification Center to display as alerts but they never show up on screen. Then when I check notification history I see notification graphics for TaskControl with no content / text displayed. Also when you click the empty notification graphics they don’t do anything.
Seeing workspaces/tasks in Menu Bar is great, but...
I love, love, love being able to see all of my workspaces and all of my tasks in one glance — via the macOS Menu Bar. However, some of the promises made by this app aren't there and some of the functionality doesn't seem to be working as intended.
Regarding the promises, the big feature that's advertised is "native notifications" but I've yet to see any come through. Like another reviewer mentioned, I think I'm hearing them but I'm not seeing them. Then again, those sounds could be coming from another app. (I've double-checked notification settings in the macOS System Preferences.)
Regarding the functionality, you're able to set which tasks you want to display (e.g., "show tasks within this week") and which tasks you want to hide (e.g., "hide tasks more than one week in the future") from within the app Preferences — but applying these settings doesn't seem to make a difference in what you see in the Menu Bar display.
To the developer: am I wrong? Am I missing something? I'm more than willing to update this review/rating but I couldn't figure out how to reach out to you directly for app support given that the website to which I was directed for "App Support" was in a foreign language. Also, let me know if I can clarify anything I've written and/or if I can help with providing any specific feedback. I'd love to see this app grow! Best of luck with the development!

Worked for me!
I wanted to leave this review as there were only two negative reviews of this app when I took the chance to download it. I have been using the app for only a week, however, it has worked perfect for me! No delays or issues connecting. All edits to tasks sync in real time to the rest of my team. Overall, I’ve been really happy with the app! It doesn’t add any other special features to the Asana web app, but it’s nice to have a native desktop app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
