Zoom integration

Overview

Asana for Zoom integration facilitates remote collaboration and work tracking. Use Asana for Zoom to lead better meetings with clear agendas and next steps.

With Asana’s Zoom integration, you can link Zoom meetings to Asana tasks to show their relationship. Users can indicate when a particular task will be solved/discussed/unblocked or completed and automatically have the recording and transcript from the meeting attached to the linked Asana task for more context and transparency. When linked, tasks will appear in the meeting agenda and have the recording and transcript from the meeting attached to the linked Asana task for more context and transparency.

This integration helps teams track meetings within Asana, lead better meetings in Zoom, and saves admin time by adding the transcript and recording where you need it as soon as it’s available.

The Asana for Zoom integration is available to all Asana users.

See linked tasks in meeting as agenda

During a Zoom meeting, opening the Asana App will show all tasks that are currently linked to the meeting. This is a great way to add tasks to the relevant meeting agenda, and make sure they’re discussed. When users open the App in the meeting, they’ll see the ‘Meetings tasks’ list. New tasks created in the meeting will also be visible here! You can also curate your tasks in whatever order you like.

All participants in the meeting who have the App added, and have access to the tasks in your workspace will be able to see it.

Create a follow-up task in a Zoom meeting

If you want to create an action item in the meeting that isn’t relevant to an existing linked task, navigate back to the Meetings tasks list, and click the ‘+’ icon in the top right corner to create a brand new task.

How to link attachments and transcripts

Once the meeting is in progress, click on the meeting details where you automatically get sent a link to join the meeting. Cancel if you don’t want to join at this juncture.

  • If your Zoom plan has access to Recordings and/or Transcripts, and your account has it enabled, Asana will automatically retrieve the recording link and/or transcript and attach them to the linked task in Asana.

  • If you link the meeting to multiple tasks, all of the tasks will have the attachments added.

This way everyone has a clear record of who’s doing what and by when, moving the project forward with focused accountability.

This integration is available to all free and paid Asana customers but may require a paid Zoom account for functionalities like recordings and transcripts. Contact Support if you need assistance.

The text of the meeting transcript will be searchable, and you can locate the relevant task by searching discussion topics in the meeting.

Audio transcription in Zoom currently only supports English.
