Google Drive Integration


We use Asana to manage production jobs for clients and internally.
We machine parts based on customer designs. At the moment we load all the documentation in a local folder on the PC (which is synced with others) and have all the status and job info on Asana with custom fields. I know we could just load all files inside Asana but they are stored somewhere we don’t know and they’re not well organized. I was wondering if it possible to use the drag and drop feature and directly load it inside a Google Drive folder that is created based on the task name


Hi Sam,

you might be able to use Zapier to automatically create folders in your Google Drive when an Asana task is created.
In the meantime I suggest you sync all your local data to Google Drive, simply create one folder per client and put this folder URL into a custom field or the description of the task.


Of course you can also directly attach the files to your task.



@Sebastian_Paasch At one time community users indicated that custom fields did not recognize a URL. Has this changed and if so what form of Custom Field are you using?



I am using the normal text field, and the URL is not clickable, but this is a minor problem, I click CTRL + L and CTRL + V and I am there :slight_smile:
