What is not synced?

Customization options

Here are all the available options for Asana and GitHub:

Add rules to filter by tag or label

Unito will sync all work items by default but you can customize your workflow by syncing just some of them (Visit our guide to filtering task).

Add rules to filter by issue type 

You can filter which type of issues you want to be synced to Asana (Issue, Pull-Request, or both) (Visit our guide to filtering issues by type)

One-way syncing

You can choose to sync only from Asana to GitHub or GitHub from Asana. Here is how it works.

Sync closed items

Unito will automatically sync open items automatically. But here is how to also sync closed items prior to the flow creation.

Add GitHub issue number to task title

Unito doesn't sync the issue number in Asana by default but you can enable that in your flow settings under the Asana tab. Here is how to do it.
