As an Asana user, I have a superpower: I know how to code and use the Asana API to (virtually) make Asana do anything 🙂 we use that power for our clients and ourselves daily! That’s how we created these Asana automations.

Now, we’re thrilled to share a curated list of these ingenious Asana automations, each given a cool and creative name, to inspire you on your automation journey.

Whether you’re looking to build your own custom solutions or seeking expert assistance, these Asana automations are bound to ignite your productivity and efficiency.

📏 With Rules and Templates in Asana

💧 The Invoice Raindown:

In our Asana workflow, we’ve revolutionized task management by creating one task per client, seamlessly housing their vital information, including name, country, language, and address.

Thanks to our automation, this information cascades down (like a refreshing rain) to relevant subtasks, such as quotes and invoices, streamlining our project organization.

🔥 The Priority Wizard:

Elevating project efficiency, we’ve implemented a custom field “Priority” with a single value “High” to emphasize crucial tasks.

Our wizardry automation adds a fiery emoji to task names with this priority, offering an instant visual cue of its significance from the My Tasks view.

🦄 The iDO Animals:

Embracing a touch of whimsy, we’ve associated an animal symbol with each client, based on their potential.

From majestic unicorns to captivating lions, our automation playfully appends these creatures to client tasks and projects, adding a delightful personal touch to our workspace.

👾 The Personal Tasks:

With a dedicated Asana Pro account for private and personal tasks, we’ve empowered task distinction through an alien emoji automation.

Now, personal tasks are easily recognizable, granting us seamless organization and clarity amidst a busy project environment.

🏘 The Subtask Wizard:

Maximizing the utility of our content calendar, we’ve harnessed the power of subtasks by seamlessly integrating them into the main project.

Our automation expertly multi-homes subtasks, making them visible on the calendar and enhancing project planning and execution.
