I have been contemplating upgrading to Asana Business to use more automations. Unfortunately there are still what I consider some basic automations missing. For example, I want to automate a “Sales Pipeline” a bit more and so when a due date arrives for a task in the “Quoted” section, it would send an email to the Email field asking if they received the proposal etc. so automate the chasing up. And if after a couple of attempts there is no reply it closes them.
But the built in Asana “Gmail” does not connect the To field to a field, but you have to enter a specific email address. I then read I could then pay extra again for Flowsana, but I dont get why I should subscribe to the top Business plan, and then have to pay more again for Flowsana to add a few automations which you’d expect in the main system.
So if Asana cannot do it, and I do have to use a 3rd party system, I would rather use Make.com (or Zapier etc) than Flowsana.
I have already created the above scenario in Make and it seems to work well. It took some time to setup.
I wondered what peoples thoughts are in not using Asana’s automations but using 3rd party systems like Make which seem to have far more triggers and actions. I am worried at some time Asana could stop such integrations and all the hard work and business automation stops. I do not want a mix of Asana automations and 3rd party, because its disjointed, I prefer all my automations in one place.
