Has anyone tried this? I'd be curious to know how well it works!

It works more as a "to do" list.  When you click on the task it will then open up Asana in a browser window.  When you are looking at Asana from within the Teams application its just a list of tasks, due dates and who has been assigned the tasks.   Its handy because using the Teams app everything is in one place, but it doesn't have the same functionality as the Asana web version.  I hope this helps.

Thanks @Tom Robey -- I looked at it a little bit, it seems like people will be drawn out into Asana, which might be good for some organizations but not for ours. It would be good if Teams became the commenting system for Asana but that is probably too much to expect.

I'm still interested in Asana, even thought the integration was not all I was expecting.

 

How do you like Asana?  Do you use the Template function (like checklists)?

 

Thanks,

Rob.

Asana is great but obviously their interest in integrating with Microsoft teams is not. Poor integration currently. Limited features and very buggy. Basically unusable. I've been looking a wrike which has a far superior integration with ms teams. 

 

I'd have to agree with @Rob O'Keefe . All these external apps (asana, wrike etc) need to jettison their chat features in favour of full chat integration with MS Teams, Slack etc. Nobody is doing chat integration well in my opinion.  MS Teams should be the chat engine available directly within the apps such as wrike & asana.
