You can kickoff a workflow automatically by tagging a task in Asana. For example, when you finish a draft of your blog post, you can tag the task "edit" and with this Zap, your Editor will get a Slack message that it's ready for feedback.
How this Asana-Slack integration works
- A tag is added to a task in Asana
- Zapier sends a message to a designated recipient in Slack

Create Asana tasks from new starred Slack messages
Slack is where you find yourself coming up with new tasks. Asana is where you manage your tasks. To create new tasks in Asana right from Slack, use this integration and next time you star a message an Asana will be created.
Note: This Zapier integration doesn't import already starred Slack message, only new starred messages once its been activated.
How It Works
- You star a message in Slack
- Zapier creates an Asana task using the Slack message text and link to message
What You Need
- Slack account
- Asana account
Add new messages in a Slack channel as Asana tasks
Team chat is handy for quick answers from your team, but getting messages out of chat and onto your to-do list can be a struggle. Use this Zapier integration to make this process seamless. Every time a new message is posted to a designated Slack channel, like #Operations or #ProductLaunch, a task is added to an Asana project. Then, you can feel confident that nothing is slipping through the cracks.
How this Slack-Asana integration works
- A new message is posted to a Slack channel
- Zapier adds this message as a task in Asana
Get a digest of completed Asana tasks sent to you in Slack on a schedule
Workdays fly by and it can feel like nothing was done. Get some comfort in the progress of your team with this workflow. After you set it up, completed tasks in Asana are added to a digest. After a certain amount of time, Zapier delivers that digest to you in Slack. You'll be amazed at what was accomplished today, this week or all month.
How this Asana-Digest-Slack integration works
- A task is marked as complete in Asana
- Zapier's Digest app stores a running log of those completed tasks
- At a time you set, your digest is sent to you in Slack
- Digest by Zapier
Get Slack messages for new Asana subtasks
Subtasks in Asana let you specify your tasks to the level of granularity that you want. With this Zapier automation, you'll get a Slack message whenever a new subtask is assigned to you. That way, you'll have a finger on the pulse of your to-do list without having to leave the chat.
How this Asana-Slack integration works
- A new subtask is added to Asana
- Zapier sends a direct message in Slack with the details of that subtask
Get Slack reminders on a delay after completing Asana tasks
This workflow is especially helpful for content managers looking to be reminded to re-share evergreen content. After you set it up, whenever you mark a task in Asana as complete, Zapier will wait a certain amount of time that you designate and then message you on Slack when it's time to re-share the content.
How this Asana-Delay by Zapier-Slack integration works
- A task is completed in an Asana project
- A period of time that you set passes
- Zapier posts a Slack message
- Delay by Zapier
Push Slack messages to Asana and create tasks on demand
To-do's slipping through the cracks? Use this automation to add Slack messages to Asana as tasks on demand. After you set up this Zap, click the 3 dots next to any Slack message and choose, "Push to Zapier" to add the message as an Asana task. That way, your tasks will be waiting for you to tackle later.
Create Asana tasks and send Slack messages when new Slack messages start with "$request"
Never lose track of a request in Slack again. This integration allows coworkers to specify their message as a request in Slack, simply by starting the message with "$request". When they do, Zapier will auto-create an Asana task so you can keep track of it. Zapier will also send a Slack message, so your team can collaborate on the request.
It's easy to connect Asana + Slack and requires absolutely zero coding experience—the only limit is your own imagination.
