Asana CSV Importer

Easily import data from spreadsheets and other work management tools into Asana.

What is the CSV importer?

Built by Asana, the CSV importer makes it easy to move data from tools—such as Excel, Smartsheet, Wrike, Monday.com, Airtable, and Trello—into Asana so you can get started right away on any project. Once imported, you’ll see your data in Asana as tasks in a project.

In addition to task names and descriptions, the CSV importer supports information such as assignee, due dates, start dates, dependencies, followers, and custom fields.

How to import CSVs and spreadsheets into Asana

To move information from Excel, Smartsheet, and other work management tools into a new project in Asana, first create a CSV file. (For more information on exporting data to a CSV file, check out our Guide article).
