- Limitations and compatibility
- Necessary permissions for connecting Asana to Unito
You can sync Asana tasks with work items in other tools by creating a Unito flow. Your flow enables you to create work items in another tool automatically whenever you manually add new tasks to Asana. You can also configure Unito to sync historical Asana tasks.
This article will give you an overview of supported fields in Wrike, as well as limitations of Unito's integration.
Which Asana fields can be synced with Unito?
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.
Quick definitions for field mappings:
- One-Way: Changes to the Asana task field will appear in the other synced field but not vice versa.
- Two-Way: Changes to either synced field will appear in the other.
- Rules: This task field can be used as a trigger in your rules to filter work items from syncing with Unito.

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.
Ready to get started? Here's a list of step-by-step guides for Asana users to connect projects to Unito.
Custom fields and other options
Our Asana integration supports a number of custom fields and other customization settings.
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.
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.
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 for connecting Asana to Unito
Your Asana 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.
Default: Provides access to all endpoints documented in our API reference.
