Millions of users in 195 countries trust Asana to help them manage work, and Slack makes workplace communication fluid and highly visible - but that doesn’t mean the two fit together without a little bit of extra plumbing. Project planning in Asana is best done in the web app, however submitting requests and tracking them as tasks in Asana can be elegantly handled from Slack. Vinyasa allows you to do just that by offering a simple yet highly customizable integration for submitting requests from Slack to Asana as tasks.Here's how it works:- Initial setup of each Slack channel - Asana project integration can be completed by running /vinyasa from a public channel or using menus and buttons in the app home tab.- Modifications to integrations must be handled from the app home tab.- Requests can be submitted by running /vinyasa from a public channel with an existing integration or by using the GUI in the app home tab.- Submitting a request posts a message to the appropriate Slack channel and creates a task in the appropriate Asana project.- The members of the Asana project can triage this task, selecting an assignee and a due date. This will posts a thread reply to the original request message in Slack, tagging the requester, the assignee, and showing the due date.- Any replies (including files) in the thread on the original Slack message are pushed to the task in Asana as comments, but any comments made by users in Asana are not pushed back to Slack so that they remain internal to the team.Installation instructions:- Your Asana workspace must be Premium or higher for this integration to work, as it does require custom fields.- We strongly recommend creating a service account user in Asana before you begin. This way an actual user is not associated with all submitted requests across your organization keeping projects both private & more accurate when tracking ticket metrics.- Login to the Slack workspace you wish to add the integration to from your browser. In a separate tab, login to the Asana workspace as the service account user mentioned above.- Visit the app page at happybara.io/vinyasa and click "Add to Slack". You will be redirected to a page with a button to install the app in Asana. You must click both install links.- Once this is complete, run /vinyasa from Slack or visit the app home tab and follow the prompts to setup your first integration.
