Instead of Slack vs. Asana, let’s talk about Slack with Asana!
Instead of asking, “should we use Asana or Slack?” think about how Asana and Slack work together. Slack is real-time messaging and simplified communication for teams, while Asana helps teams track their projects and tasks and collaborate more effectively, though it does also have team communication features.
Teams who successfully use both tend to rely on Slack for instant, communication (Just a quick check, are you going to that meeting at 2:30?) and Asana for actionable tasks, projects, and requests (“could you create a report on our web traffic for Monday’s meeting?”)
With the Asana and Slack integration, you can move conversations and ideas from Slack to tasks and projects in Asana. Or ensure what seems like a quick question (but isn’t) becomes a task with an assignee and due date.
Ways to use the Slack Asana integration
There are several ways you can turn Slack communications into trackable and executable Asana tasks. Make sure your promise to “get that report to you tomorrow” doesn’t get dropped. From Slack you can:
- Create a new task, assign it to yourself or a teammate, and add it to an existing project
- Comment on a task
- Mark a task complete
- Receive updates on task creation, completion, or comments
