What is Slack?

Slack is a messaging app for business that connects people to the information they need. By bringing people together to work as one unified team, Slack transforms the way organizations communicate. 

Why Slack + Asana?

With Slack + Asana, teams can turn Slack conversations and ideas into actionable tasks and projects in Asana, driving mission-critical work forward across their entire organization. Go from quick questions and action items to tasks with assignees and due dates.

Ways to use the Slack + Asana integration

Easily capture work so requests and to-dos don’t get lost in Slack. Turn any Slack message into an actionable Asana task with just a few clicks.

With the Slack + Asana integration, you can:

  • Create a new task, assign it to yourself or a teammate, and add it to an existing project
  • See Asana data like tasks, milestones, projects, portfolios, and more
  • Comment on a task
  • Mark a task complete
  • List all tasks in your workspace or organization
  • Receive updates on task creation, completion, or comments

Get cross-functional updates faster with AI

With AI from Asana Intelligence, teams now have the power to quickly summarize Asana tasks directly in Slack. This makes it easier for your teams to get the latest status of work and surface key takeaways without having to send emails, schedule meetings, or switch between tools.

Once an Asana task link is pasted in Slack, you can simply click on the “Summarize task” button and a summary is generated. With this summary, you can stay up to date on cross-functional updates faster, whether you’re getting caught up after time off, joining a project mid-stream, or keeping an eye on work you’re not actively involved in.
