Using the Asana integration

Here's how the Asana integrations works: you connect Status Hero and Asana, select Asana projects to monitor, and Status Hero will match up relevant Asana task updates to your team members. Their updates will appear in the activity page and alongside their check-ins.

To set up this integration, visit the Account - Integrations page. Click open the Asana panel and click the "Connect Asana" button. You'll be prompted to authorize the integration by Asana.

Once connected, select the Asana projects you'd like to monitor on the integrations page.  To select multiple boards, use ctrl+select (cmd+select on Mac).

When someone from your team adds, updates, or completes a task in the selected project(s), Status Hero will add the activity to their check-in.

To test it out, make a change in a selected Asana project and look for a new entry in the activity stream.


Once a few activities have been logged, you can use the auto-complete functionality in check-ins and comments to auto-link to issues in your Asana account.

Simply type "#" and a string of text that is part of your Asana item and you'll be able to select and auto-insert a fully formatted link to the item!


  • Look for updates in the activity stream first. The dashboard will sum up updates from the previous period. (The check-ins essentially say "here's what I did yesterday, and here is all of the Asana activity to go along with that.)

  • Make sure that the people making updates in Asana match up either by email or by first and last name with people on your team in Status Hero.  If you or a team member is using a different email address in Asana, set the secondary email address to match the one used in Asana.

  • Status Hero won't be able to record data retroactively. Make sure you generate some activity in Asana in order to test things out after you've set up the connection.
