Updating tasks across organisations

Hello All,

I’m looking for help on an unusual case:
My company works closely with a vendor to build a bespoke software product.
Both companies use Asana.

Goal:
By creating or updating a task in the Company A’s project, the corresponding task should update in Company B’s project. Obviously we have both companies’ collaboration on this.

Progress:
I’ve used IFTTT before to do similar task duplication, but not across organisations. I can get an email to fire on task update from Company A’s Asana to a mailbox. My initial idea was to make that the email address of Company B’s Asana project and allow Asana to create a task from the email, but it’s blocking receipt as it is from another domain.

Anyone managed to do something similar or have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Martin

Quick update:
I’m able to achieve this through Zapier, but I need an account in each organisation’s Asana to set it up.

Does anyone know of a way this could be achieved with the API?

Hi @Martin_Fourie, thanks for reaching out! You are right, you can achieve this using Zapier as we don’t have a native feature in Asana. I recommend you asking this question in the #developersAPI category :slight_smile: one of the developers and experts will be able to help you with your question.
