Automate powerful business processes by integrating Asana with other IT tools and systems in your enterprise such as messaging, calendar, and issue triaging systems. Possible uses include:

  • Improve cross-team communication by automating a workflow where users get notified (via a messaging system such as Slack) anytime a task or comment is created in Asana.

  • Enhance sales collaboration by automating the lead tracking and nurturing process where any time a new lead or opportunity is created in your CRM system (such as Salesforce), a task is created and assigned to a user via your Asana dashboard for triaging and tracking.
