asana task on slack thread

Hi there, how to create asana task on slack thread?
I integrated my asana project with slack channel, whenever I tried to create new asana task via slack thread, it displayed as a main message in the channel. It’s too noisy especially when there’s a lot of people in the channel.
is it any way to create asana task from a message and posted as a thread in that message? Thanks

Hi @Hanessa_Kamal, thanks for reaching out!

You can type /asana create to create a new task in Asana without leaving Slack.

I hope this helps! :slight_smile:

Hi @Rebecca_McGrath thanks. however what I mean is how to create asana task by typing /asana in reply as a slack thread. here is an example of jira ticket that created by replying a thread. can we do such a thing for asana in the thread?

Hi @Hanessa_Kamal, thanks for getting back to me!

You can create an Asana task by typing /asana create in a reply to a thread :slight_smile:

Please let me know if you need any additional help!

I have tried it and it shows this message. I still can’t create the asana task on a thread, it always shows as a message in main channel, not in the thread

Can you please confirm if both your Slack and Asana app are up to date and you are using the most recent version?

I have tested this on my end and can confirm that I can use /asana create on response to threads.

Looking forward to hearing back from you :slight_smile:

hello @Rebecca_McGrath yes I can confirm that both apps are the most recent versions. Even when I can use /asana as a reply to thread, the asana task still displayed outside the thread :frowning:
still have no idea how to make the asana task as a reply thread without posting it as a separate message in the channel

Thanks for following up, @Hanessa_Kamal. Apologies, I may have misunderstood your question! While you can create Asana tasks via thread replies, the message will show in the channel as opposed to the thread response. This is expected behaviour!

Hi @Rebecca_McGrath thank you for confirming. Just an idea, if a user can create asana task from a message or as a reply to a thread, I think it would be better to post it in the thread message. It would be very helpful for the user to track the task in both, slack and asana. Thanks
