Connecting Perform to Asana

Does your team leverage Asana as part of its workflow? Use Perform’s Asana integration to copy action items into Asana and sync Asana projects with your Perform workspace.

Why use Perform’s Asana integration?

Before something becomes a project with detailed tasks, it usually starts out as a conversation between an employee and a manager. We want to make it easy for those conversations to flow seamlessly from ideas to project management when the time comes.

We know how challenging it can be to keep track of all your to-do’s from one system to another and how important it is to update your manager or team on the status of your projects via Perform. This is why we have integrated with Asana, one of the most popular project management tools on the market.

With this Asana integration, you will be able to:
