Hi! Katy here from the API Product team at Asana. We’ve got an update to share about the App Components project.
First, thank you to those of you that joined the Alpha program for Asana Platform UI, now called App Components. We learned so much from the Alpha program. The feedback was incredibly valuable to us as we transition to closed Beta and prepare for the public launch in early 2022!
Before App Components become available to all developers early next year, we are inviting a small group of developers to be part of our closed Beta. This group will have the opportunity to be the first 3rd-party apps published to our in-product app gallery and will also be considered to be featured in an Asana Engineering blog post.
Joining the closed Beta
- We plan to publicly launch App Components in early 2022. Apps submitted prior to December 1st 2021 will be considered for the closed Beta group.
Let us know you are interested in publishing your app by signing up here.
- If you’ve already built an app, we will send you a follow up email to talk about your app and kickstart the Security Review and QA process.
- If you haven’t started building your app yet, no worries! You can still participate. Let us know you’re interested by filling out the form above, then check out our new Quick Start Guide for building App Components. Once you’ve started building your app, fill out this form to create it.
We’re so excited you’re building with Asana and we can’t wait to see what you create. Leave any questions in the comments!
1. What does “closed” Beta mean?
Closed Beta means that we are not accepting all submissions to be included in the in-product app gallery for the launch. The process to create apps will continue to be tightly managed by Asana throughout the closed Beta. This will change once we transition to “public” Beta. In a “public” Beta, all developers will be able to use App Components and submit their app for review from within the Developer Console.
2. What does Security Review and QA consist of?
Once you’ve submitted your app, Asana’s Security team will review the app and do internal QA to ensure it’s working as expected. Over the coming months, we will publish guidelines and resources on how to prepare for QA to help developers QA their own apps.
3. If I already have an app with Asana, what will this mean for me?
Developers who already have an app with Asana will need to resubmit their app (or create a new app) so that we can review the new App Component functionality.
