Asana has today announced Asana for Microsoft Teams, enabling conversations in Teams to integrate seamlessly with Asana projects. 

Beginning today, customers using Asana for Microsoft Teams can stay connected and organised, no matter where they’re working.

According to IDC, 54 per cent of IT decision makers will increase their investment in collaboration applications as a response to COVID-19, despite overall budget decreases. At the same time, 76 per cent of organizations agree that having collaboration tools in place helps them recruit and hire top talent.  With these global trends accelerating tech adoption across sectors, organizations are adapting to new ways of working together. 

“Insights from Asana’s Anatomy of Work: Remote Teams index show that nearly two-thirds of workers have increased their use of collaboration tools since moving to remote and distributed work, with one in five using these tools for the first time,” said Asana head of product Alex Hood.

“At a time when teams around the world are physically apart, a shared sense of clarity, transparency, and accountability is needed now more than ever. We’re thrilled to deepen our integration with Microsoft to deliver tools that streamline and automate workflows, empowering teams to stay connected and achieve their most important initiatives.”

Beginning today, Asana for Microsoft Teams makes it easy to:

  • Instantly create the plan of record on who is doing what by when, that’s always clear and never out of date, by turning conversations in Teams into trackable, actionable tasks in Asana in one click
  • Receive and customize automated notifications about important Asana task and project changes directly in Teams via bot technology
  • Easily signal task status and progression by giving teammates more context and visibility into Asana tasks within the Teams UI
  • Find and share Asana tasks, projects, and portfolios with your teammates directly in Microsoft Teams

“During this period of remote work, more of our customers are turning to Microsoft Teams to connect with their teammates and clients,” said Microsoft Corp director of Microsoft 365 ecosystem marketing Mike Ammerlaan.

“Building on our collaboration with Asana, we’re pleased to see these enhancements to Asana for Microsoft Teams, helping our customers with the tools they need to securely collaborate, communicate, and coordinate their work, no matter where they’re located.” 

In addition to Asana for Microsoft Teams, together, Asana and Microsoft have co-created a suite of offerings for newly distributed teams: 

  • With Asana for Outlook, customers can convert emails from Microsoft Outlook into trackable, actionable work, and attach files from Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Powerpoint, and Microsoft Sharepoint to Asana tasks with the Microsoft OneDrive integration. 
  • Asana Power BI allows Asana customers to build custom dashboards based on Asana inputs, and layer on insights from other business tools to share a complete team snapshot. 
  • The Power Automate integration enables customers to streamline repetitive processes between Microsoft applications and Asana. 
  • Using the Office 365 for Asana connector, Asana customers can get notified within Microsoft Outlook whenever someone in their Office 365 group creates, completes, or comments on a task.
  • Customers can easily attach files from Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Sharepoint to Asana tasks with the Microsoft OneDrive integration.
  • The Azure AD integration makes it easy for customers to manage user access, provision user accounts, and enable single sign-on with Asana.
