Asana for Adobe Creative Cloud

Asana for Adobe Creative Cloud is available for all Business and Enterprise customers.

Asana for Adobe Creative Cloud is an integration between Asana and key Adobe Creative Cloud software - Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.

The integration is an ‘extension’ or ‘panel’ inside each of the 3 Adobe applications.

The extension can be installed via the Adobe Exchange site, which is their extension directory.

You need to have supported versions of the 3 apps in order to use the extension. Currently we support the 2021 version of Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC and InDesign CC.

Once installed via the Exchange website, the Creative Cloud desktop app will sync the extension to your computer. Please ensure you have installed all updates.

Once the extension has been synced and you restart your Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign:

  1. Access the Window tab
  2. Hover over Extensions and select Asana

Opening the extension opens a panel in your Adobe software with the Asana extension. From here you can login (if you already have an Asana account) or sign up (if you don’t).
