Asana plugs into Microsoft Teams

There’s no doubt that the COVID-19 situation is responsible for the spike in remote working in recent times. And Microsoft Teams is one of the leading providers of SaaS collaboration tools that have cranked up innovation in response.

Unlike rival Slack, Teams’ growth and success depend more on the depth and breadth of Office 365 than third-party app integration. But that’s not to say that Teams isn’t integrating with solutions from other tech firms.

Little wonder, then, that Asana announced a new integration with the Office 365 SaaS tool.

Microsoft Teams integrates with Asana

Asana’s integration with Microsoft Teams should enable teammates to automate workflows even as they collaborate remotely, the company said.

At a time when teams around the world are physically apart, a shared sense of clarity, transparency, and accountability is needed now more than ever. We’re thrilled to deepen our integration with Microsoft to deliver tools that streamline and automate workflows, empowering teams to stay connected and achieve their most important initiatives.

Microsoft Teams/Asana integration should deliver the following perks:

  • In particular, the new integration gives Asana users visibility into Teams conversations. It enables them to streamline task management as a result.
  • Another benefit is the incorporation of a bot that auto-generates notifications about Asana task changes. Teams users can receive and personalize that information accordingly.
  • The Teams user interface lets teammates track and share info on the status and progression of Asana tasks.
  • Within Microsoft Teams, colleagues can find and share Asana tasks.

Plugging a workflow automation tool into Teams should make latter a little more powerful than it is already.

Don’t forget that the Office 365 solution is soon receiving an RPA injection, thanks to Power Automate integration. Microsoft announced that during the recently concluded Build 2020 event.
