Asana Slack Notifications for File Attachments

Hi everyone. I was recently looking into whether we could set up notifications in the Asana Slack app to be alerted whenever a file is attached or updated on a task. I couldn’t find a way to do this, as the current Asana Slack notifications can’t be edited or new ones added. Does anyone know if this is possible some other way?

We would appreciate your input/advice. Thank you!

Hi @Rebecca_Cuscaden,

You have a couple of options:

Firstly, if you have a developer (or are a developer yourself), then you can create a custom integration between Asana and Slack. This is good because it will allow you to have a little more control over how you integrate the two together. However, this’ll likely be the most costly and time consuming.

You can find the Asana API documentation here:

and the Slack API here:

If that isn’t feasible, then a third-party option is probably best for you. They’ll help you integrate the two together without knowing how to code. I run a service that does exactly that, integrates web apps together, and Asana and Slack are two of them.

It wouldn’t take much to add alerts for when a file is added or updated on a task in Asana, and I’m happy to prioritize it if it would be of help to you. If you’re interested, please head to https://www.getquickflow.com/pioneer and leave your email address and I’ll be more than happy to add that specific feature.

You can see the service itself at https://www.getquickflow.com. I hope this helps, good luck!
