Asana and Microsoft have co-created a suite of new offerings for enterprise communication and collaboration with expanded integrations between Asana and Microsoft Teams.
This comes more than three years after the platforms first integrated to create a solution that allowed users to chat with teammates about a project while looking at tasks, see tasks in a project and who they’re assigned to and complete tasks when they’re done.
With the new integration, users can:
- Translate conversations on Teams into action items in Asana so users never lose track of an idea
- View Asana tasks, projects, portfolios and status updates within Teams, bringing work directly into Teams conversations to keep team members updated.
- Search for Asana tasks within Teams to share context from Asana with stakeholders
- Set custom notifications related to Asana projects in a Teams channel and receive important notifications privately.
Asana also integrates with a suite of Microsoft tools, like Outlook, OneDrive, and Power Automate.
According to an Asana blog, Asana Business customers can also take advantage of the Asana For Power BI integration “to build custom dashboards based on Asana inputs, and layer on additional insights from other business tools in order to share a complete team snapshot.’
Asana Enterprise customers can add the Microsoft Azure Active Directory integration to manage user access, provision user accounts and enable sign-on with Asana.
The deeper integration allows users to work, communicate and collaborate securely regardless of where they are, write Victoria Chernova and Julia Martins, both marketing managers at Asana.
“Staying connected and organized is always important, but remote connection has become an integral part of our work as many teams continue to work while distributed. In addition to our expanded collaboration with Microsoft, we’re excited to announce a more powerful and robust Microsoft Teams integration. With the Asana for Microsoft Teams integration, conversations in Teams can take place side by side with your Asana projects.”
