What is Dropbox?

Dropbox is secure cloud storage that allows you to break free from your storage and file size limits. Store all your content in a single, safe place and easily share files with anyone.

Why Dropbox + Asana?

Quickly add your chosen file from Dropbox by clicking the paperclip icon and selecting Dropbox from the list.


  1. Attach files relevant to the tasks you're tracking in Asana, so you have all the information you need to get your work done.
  2. You can access your entire library of Dropbox files in one click, allowing you to browse and choose the file you want to attach to your Asana task.
  3. When a file's location is updated in Dropbox, it will automatically be reflected in the Asana task to avoid confusion about where your files live.

With Asana Rules, teams can automatically upload task attachments to a specific Dropbox folder to streamline sharing, storage, and collaboration. Teams can go from manually transferring files to choosing triggers that automatically and securely upload task attachments to Dropbox for easy reference.


For example, teams can use Asana to work on asset approvals and, following approval, automatically upload the task attachment to a specific Dropbox folder to ensure final assets get uploaded to the correct location.
