At Asana, we’re all about making cross-team collaboration seamless. Today, we’re excited to introduce Asana Flow, a suite of new features powered by the Asana Work Graph data model and purpose-built to drive effortless coordination for individuals, teams, and organizations.

Achieving company-wide alignment is not easy, especially in today’s always-on digital workplace. Why? It comes down to the fact that companies are organized functionally—each team working with their own tools and siloed processes—when the reality is that work happens cross-functionally. When teams collaborate without a codified process or tool stack, redundancies, bottlenecks, and work about work can proliferate.

Building a flexible platform that teams love is at the core of everything we do. With Asana Flow, you can reduce work about work, enable teams to align with ease, win back time, and keep work flowing in the right direction. Asana Flow gives teams the ability to build processes from start to finish, individuals clarity on how their tasks fit into the overall workflow, and leaders the insights they need to maximize efficiency—all in one place.

Make collaboration simple with our Workflow Builder

Organizing workflows across different departments can be chaotic, especially when teams use disconnected tools that can only execute bits and pieces of a project. True cross-team coordination requires a more end-to-end solution.

Enter Workflow Builder, a new point-and-click tool that visualizes and builds powerful automated workflows—no coding required. With this robust solution, you can create effective processes that connect teams across all levels and pillars of your organization.

You can also streamline tasks and keep your teammates in sync by adding everyday apps—like Slack, Adobe Creative Cloud, Salesforce, Zoom, and more—right into your workflows. Plus, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re expanding our Asana Partners network with Miro and Jotform. And with App Components launching in the coming months, developers will have an easier and faster way to integrate your favorite tools directly within the Asana UI.

Turn best practices into standard practices with our Template Library

Imagine a space where you can easily replicate the greatest processes built by the greatest minds of your organization—and the companies you admire. Our redesigned Template Library does just that. This space is an archive of the company brain, where you and your teammates can save, share, and reuse your most successful workflows. The best part? We’ve added a slew of industry-approved templates made in collaboration with leading organizations around the globe. Instead of starting from scratch, you can now use these new world-class workflows to supercharge your projects and scale best practices across your organization. From streamlining creative requests to better account management, Asana has a customizable template to help you jumpstart your work.

Prioritize your workload with Home

Looking for a smarter way to focus on your most important tasks and projects? Home puts your personal slice of the Work Graph at the center of your Asana so you can prioritize your workday, see how your tasks impact the overall workflow, and connect with your collaborators from the get-go. With a brand new selection of widgets, Home is now a customizable launchpad that can fit your style, your projects, and your priorities. Over the coming months, we will be adding intelligent features to Home that will reduce the gap between individual tasks and cross-team work.

Optimize your organization’s flow with Workflow Reporting

An organization cannot evolve with old processes. Rather than letting your workflows remain static, Workflow Reporting gives you the visibility you need to improve even the most efficient processes. With this expansion to Universal Reporting, you can diagnose what’s working, what needs revising, and how your team can increase productivity. From tracking how long each task takes to monitoring progress at every stage, you can now unlock real-time insights into your team’s resources and achieve goals faster.
