Hi @Alexandre_Laplante, thanks for reporting these issues! I have splitted the reports into two threads so we can share updates for each issue accordantly: Generic error when adding tags to Tasks from the Slack Workflow Builder

I have gone ahead and escalated this issues and I will let you know once we have any updates :slight_smile:

Hi @Alexandre_Laplante, similar to the other bug you reported, the issue is related to the Slack Workflow Builder and not specifically to the Asana integration. In this case, we recommend reaching out to the Slack support team for further assistance:

Let us know if you have any other questions!

Hi @Emily_Roman, does Slack maintain the Asana integration or does Asana? I believe the error is in the piece of the integration maintained by Asana.

@Alexandre_Laplante we support the Asana integration you can use in slack channels and conversations, you can see the details here: Slack + Asana • Asana :slight_smile:

Slack Workflows + Asana is a Slack’s partner-built integration.
