Customization options

Here are all the available options for Asana and GitHub:

Filter by tag or label

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

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 sync

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

Sync tasks/issues that are already closed 

Unito will automatically sync opened tasks or issues automatically. But here is how to also sync closed tasks and issues prior to the sync creation.

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