How to integrate DeskTime with Asana?

The DeskTime integration with Asana is the fastest way to deliver your projects and tasks from one app to another. Instead of manually adding all the projects and tasks in the Projects section, integrate DeskTime with Asana, and it will be done automatically for you. 

How does it work?

Once DeskTime establishes a connection with Asana, tasks and projects are delivered to DeskTime's project section.

Start tracking your project/task with the DeskTime project timer.

Tasks created in DeskTime, will not be synchronized back to Asana. The time user spent on certain tasks will be sent back to Asana (including manually added time for projects/tasks).
