Hi, we’ve recently adopted Asana for our product team to manage the post-release process. All of our engineering-related tasks are in Github and we’re using Zapier to get those tasks into Asana every time they’ve moved into the “released” state.
This works great except for the fact that each of our tasks has 10 subtasks by default. We could create these subtasks using Zapier but it will absolutely destroy our task pool.
We’d like to be able to select a default task template in Zapier when creating a new task in Asana. This would save us lots of money (not using Zapier to create subtasks) and also time (not having to manually add each subtask) to each newly created task.
Furthermore, it would be great to set a default task template for a specific project as there’s no way to currently do this and in some views, like list view, you can create a task without being prompted to choose a task template.
Have you tried any integration solutions aside from Zapier? From what I gathered about your use case you seem to be in need of a collaboration tool rather than an automation tool.
I think Unito.io might be a better option for what you’re trying to do, it’s a lot quicker to set up a sync in Unito and it syncs two ways so you could just set it up and forget it. It also syncs subtasks.
You can also check out Integromat and Tray, they might be of value to you as well.
