Integration with Asana for Success Plans


Exporting Success Plan data to Asana and as well as importing asana projects into Success plans. We have to use external tools sometimes to collaborate on objectives at a project level and using Asana helps us.

Hi @aparimala :

Is each success plan a project in Asana? You can create a report on success plan data and export it as an excel...but wanted to understand if the structure of a project in asana is similar to a success plan 


@aparimala we need more inputs to help you better.


@aparimala - are you on the SFDC version of Gainsight?
 

There are a couple apps that integrate Salesforce and Asana. Some of them create an Asana custom object in Salesforce that you could link to the CSP tasks. Here are a few options that might help: 

 

https://zapier.com/apps/asana/integrations/salesforce
https://tray.io/connectors/asana-salesforce-integrations


The only other way I know would be to manually import/export the data on a daily basis to it get’s loaded or leverage the APIs. Either way, if you are looking to just test a few things out, it might be easier to get Asana connected to Salesforce and then connect it to Gainsight SFDC or Nxt. 


We would love an Asana + Gainsight integration as our CSMs are using Asana for task and project management. It would be amazing to be able to add account planning to the mix with parity in Gainsight for account plans specifically, so we could report alongside client health score and usage data. We do not use tools such as Zapier, Workato, or Tray.io.


An Asana + Gainsight integration will be very useful as we have PS resources using Asana to manage and track the success related tasks. This will enable CSPs to have visibility of what’s achieved to allow us to summarize what outcomes have been delivered to customers in a scaled manner (i.e. use Gainsight to summarize c360 info, less app switching, less clicks etc)


@Anil Raj Pujari anything we can share?


An Asana integration would help our CSMs as well. The primary reason why they’re not using CTAs is that there are more flexible systems for managing tasks, such as Asana. An integration (or feature enhancements for more personalization on CTAs) would be amazing for our users!

Not sure if you have any more info on this. I would be happy to participate in any betas or show you how I manage my customers and where I think there would be value in updating Gainsight with info from Asana. I think having Asana as the main driver would work best.
