Top Asana app integrations

Integrating Asana with other tools your team uses can be a very effective way of getting your team excited and comfortable with Asana. Teammates might be more willing to fully adopt Asana when they can see how it fits within their current systems and workflows. Integrations make it even simpler to track all your work in Asana and save time.

Using integrations

There are lots of Asana integrations for general use, as well as ones for more specific teams or workflows. You can browse all Asana integrations, but below are a few recommendations that your team might find valuable right away.

File sharing

It’s easy to attach files from your computer to any Asana task (just drag and drop them into the task). In addition, you can attach files from your favorite file-sharing tools, so your team always has the latest version of a file—right there with the work that it’s related to.

The following file management tools are already built in to Asana. First, make sure you have granted Asana permission to access your account. Then, to attach a file directly from any of these tools, just click the paperclip icon and select the tool you want to use.

Attach a file from your computer or a file sharing tool

If you want to see all of the files attached to tasks in a project, use Files View.

Adobe Creative Cloud

For designers and creatives, referencing requirements and feedback when creating usually means searching for files and jumping between apps. Instead of losing time and missing context, creatives can keep the Asana task open in Adobe Creative Cloud apps like Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator.

Sending and receiving email

If you’re obsessively managing your email inbox, having trouble moving your team away from email, or corresponding with anyone outside your organization (like a contractor, agency, or customers), you’ll love our email integrations. They help you make conversations actionable with just a few clicks.

If you use Gmail and Outlook, try the Asana for Gmail Add-on or Asana for Outlook app to turn emails directly into tasks, assign tasks to teammates, set due dates, and add the task to a project—without leaving your email inbox. It’s the easiest way to turn conversations into action.

If you are a marketing team sending email, the Litmus integration makes it easy for marketers to collaborate on the email production process so your team can get campaigns out the door faster. This integration gives you full visibility into email campaign statuses, syncs tasks between Litmus and Asana, and connects email production to your broader marketing programs and projects to prevent duplicate work.


Stay on top of work, and keep conversations actionable with Slack and Asana. Get notified when a task is created, completed, or commented on, or take basic task actions—all directly from Slack.

Watch the How to Asana video below to learn how to use the integration in action.

Enhancing Asana

Other applications can help you get even more out of Asana to help you with planning, reporting, and time tracking.

  • Instagantt—Sync Instagantt with Asana to create Gantt charts, schedule tasks on a timeline, set start dates, and plan projects.
  • Wufoo—Create custom webforms with Wufoo to capture incoming work requests, track bugs, track referrals, etc. to automatically map responses to Asana tasks.
  • CSV importer—Move your project plans from spreadsheets into Asana. You’ll see your rows and columns become trackable, actionable tasks with assignees and due dates in a project.
  • Zapier—Zapier connects to hundreds of other apps you use to send tasks to Asana automatically without creating work or duplicating information.
  • Weekdone—With Weekdone, you can create reports and dashboards to see your team’s Asana performance via task completion ratios, number of open and completed tasks by teammate, incomplete tasks, and more.
  • Harvest—The Harvest timer can be added directly to the task pane in Asana so you can track time spent on any task. Freelancers, contractors, or small businesses can translate those hours into invoices and show exactly what work was done.

Using Asana with tools you already love makes tracking your work even simpler. And when you can get things done and hit your goals with your team, work feels a little less like “work.”
