I have just started using Asana and really like it. But what I would like to be able to do is integrate it with Evernote so that I can include links to Evernote notes (or even embed them) into Asana tasks.

E.g. I have a bunch of Evernote notes that document how to do something in a list format. Such a note is non-project specific so it shouldn't be a task/project in a PM tool. But when I want to create a new task in Asana within which I will be using such instructions, it would be nice to be able to link/embed the specific Evernote note so that it is visible in the task itself without going to Evernote.

Can that be done in Asana? If not, do you know of another PM tool (e.g. Trello) that can do this?

Evernote lets you create public links with your notes. Can't you copy and paste those links in Asana? – Max Jan 13 '14 at 22:48
i was unaware i could do that in Evernote. is it available in the free version? – amphibient Jan 13 '14 at 23:21

In Evernote (including the free version), you can get a public link for any note you have by right clicking on it "Share" > "Copy Share Link". Then you can paste that note in an email, website, Skype. So this should work in Asana.

When other users click that link, it will take them to a webpage on Evernote's site that contains just that note; I suggest you try yourself to copy/paste that link in your browser to test it. The bottom line is that they don't have to have Evernote installed, or even know what Evernote is for that matter.

As a side note, in the same right click menu, you'll notice there's another option called "Copy Note Link" which is for a different feature. It allows you to link notes inside Evernote (the URL starts with the Evernote protocol "evernote://..."), which is also useful to make summary notes that link to several other notes. That URL can only be used by yourself in the Evernote app on your desktop.
