Salesforce and Asana Integration
One of the greatest advantages to the Salesforce ecosystem is the number of applications available through the Appexchange. Most organizations that use Salesforce have also adopted other cloud platforms for Project Management, Work Management, and providing client services. Many of the “well-known” cloud app vendors have free connectors listed on the Appexchange which allow organizations to quickly set up plug & play solutions. A simple automated process goes a long way when it comes to coordinating across different departments in the same organization. Asana, a work management platform, is one of the most well-known, that we’ll be diving into today. More specifically, the Salesforce and Asana Integration and its capabilities.
Asana defines itself as a platform for Work Management, and use cases can vary from Sales, Marketing, Service, Project Management, etc. Below, we will be reviewing a few use cases for the Asana/Salesforce Connector that is listed for free on the Appexchange. The three common use cases which we will observe include:
- Launching a post Sale Process after an Opportunity is Closed Won
- Sending a task to Asana based on Case Creation/Escalation
- Using Asana to Coordinate Campaign Planning in Salesforce
