ServiceNow & Asana

Asana for ServiceNow

Asana’s ServiceNow Spoke integration lets Organizations easily integrate Asana into existing cross-tool workflows, and reduces the manual work required to collaborate effectively.

IT & Ops teams using ServiceNow for automating workflows can create a flow that triggers a task, project, or approval in Asana. These triggers can include escalating customer requests to the relevant support team, creating tracking items for internal HR or IT requests, or requesting finance or HR approval for a budget or payroll issue.

Use Cases

Because of the flexibility of the ServiceNow platform, this is not a comprehensive list, but reflects some common use cases:

Automatically assign work when an incident arises

IT service management teams using ServiceNow for automating incident management can create a flow that triggers a task in Asana for customer-facing teams whenever incidents of a certain severity level occur. So if IT logs a serious performance issue in ServiceNow, it’ll automatically trigger an Asana task for marketing to monitor customer sentiment and prepare reactive comms.

Escalate requests that require work outside of ServiceNow

Internal-facing service teams who use ServiceNow to track and manage employee tickets often receive requests that require actions outside ServiceNow, like fulfilling hardware requests, or managing a workplace request.
