A Guide To Unito's Asana Integration

Looking to connect Asana to your Unito workflows? Here's what you can expect from our integration.

Synced fields

Here are the fields you can currently sync with Asana, whether they can be used in two-way flows, as well as whether you can use them in rules or not.

Most fields can be synced both ways. This means changes in one tool will affect the other and vice-versa. You can also edit a flow (or a specific field mapping) so that changes only go from one tool to the other and not back.

Link to task    

What counts as an item in sync?

For Asana, both tasks and subtasks count as items in sync. So if you sync an Asana task that has a subtask, Unito will count this as two items in sync.

Custom fields and other options

Our Asana integration supports a number of custom fields and other customization settings.

Custom fields

The custom fields supported by this integration are Single-Select dropdown, Multi-Select, Number, and Text fields. You can also build rules with the Single-Select dropdown field.


Asana subtasks can be synced with other tools that have subtasks, such as Jira or Trello.

Default Section

When an Asana task is created to match a task in another tool — like a Trello card — you can determine which section of the Asana project it will be added to by default.

Attachment streaming

You can stream Asana attachments, meaning anyone with the link can view the files from other tools without logging into Asana.

Limitations and compatibility

We’re constantly looking to better support Asana’s growing list of features, fields, and use-cases. Here are a few common limitations you should be aware of:

  • You can’t use Asana portfolios as a block of work, but we can sync the contents of portfolios as individual blocks of work.

  • We don’t support syncing Project End Date, but we do support syncing Start Date.

  • Task approval states — Approve, Request Changes and Reject — are not mappable fields.

  • Task followers are not synced.

  • Only attachments added to an Asana task — not the task's description — can be synced with Unito.

Unito is compatible with all tiers of Asana subscriptions, including free! Some functionality is limited to Asana’s higher tiers, such as syncing custom fields.

Necessary permissions

Your account needs to be a full member of your organization, not a guest. Then, make sure the account is part of the Asana team that owns the project you want to sync.

OAuth Scopes

Default: Provides access to all endpoints documented in our API reference.
