Within Teamwork Projects, you can import projects from Asana using the Asana importer.



To start an import, click your profile icon in the top right of your site, and select 'Settings' from the dropdown menu:


In the Settings area, go to the 'Import' tab:

Here, you will see an section for Asana. Click the 'Import' button to start the process:


If you are already signed into Asana you will not be prompted to sign in, you will see an 'allow' option instead:


If you are not already signed into Asana you will be prompted to enter your email address and password and then allow as above.

When you have logged in you can choose which Asana account to use.

You will then have an option to choose what you would like to import:

  • All people, or just those who are in the projects you're importing
  • All projects, or skip some 
  • All items within the projects, or just some (tasks/notebooks/messages/events)


You can either wait for the import to finish or close the window and be you will be emailed with an update as soon as the import is complete.

If you have already imported a project from Asana you can choose to reimport the project.

Note: If you choose reimport, it will overwrite the previous import and any changes that you have made since the initial import:


If you choose the 'Update' option then the project will be imported from Asana but the existing import will not be overwritten. Changes you have made will remain.

Only new project items added or created in Asana will be imported to the project in Teamwork.

Note: The activity on your projects in Asana won't show up on your dashboard activity stream or the overview for each project. You will only see changes made to the content once you've imported it in these areas.

You can remove the link between Teamwork and your current Asana account by signing-out of your currently active Asana account and signing-into a different one.

You can also remove the link completely by deauthorizing the Teamwork Projects app from within your Asana Profile Settings > Apps.

Note: Archived projects can also be imported & will remain archived.
