No Code Salesforce and Asana Integration


Lead generation, follow-up, and admin tasks keep sales teams engaged. Most reps are multitasking multiple profiles at the same time, dealing with lead qualification, pre-deal support efforts, customer kick-off calls, demo preparations, contract-to-cash processes, post-deal onboarding activities, and much more.


The Asana for Salesforce integration adds value to organizations by allowing your sales teams to collaborate efficiently with other cross-functional team members throughout the sales cycle, allowing deals to close faster. It also automates the handoff between the Sales and Post-Sales/Implementation teams, reducing manual work and increasing simplicity.


Prerequisites

  • Asana knowledge is beneficial.

  • Salesforce knowledge is required.

  • An account on Asana.

  • A Salesforce account with administrative rights.

Let's get started with the integration process;

The access permissions can now be chosen from three options: only admins, particular users, and all users, in a new dialogue box that will now open. Click on install after selecting your preferred option.




Setting up Salesforce Classic's Asana Integration


Asana's setting page component for your Salesforce instance must be added to your Visualforce page in order to begin integrating Asana with Salesforce Classic. Log in to Salesforce Classic with your login information, such as your username and password, to add the component.


Constructing a Visualforce Page layout with the Asana Setting Component


After logging in, navigate to the setup page and use the search box on the left to look up 'tabs.' Create a new Visualforce tab by selecting the tabs option.


Now, the Visualforce setup window will appear. Choose the Asana settings page option from the page drop-down list by clicking on it. Click next after providing a distinctive name and tab style for your new page.

The Asana settings page can also be added to your Salesforce home page. Visit the setup page and use the search box on the left to look for ‘home’ to accomplish this. Create a new CTA in the custom components section by selecting the ‘home’ option, ‘home page components,’ and finally ‘option.’


A different name, such as ‘Asana Settings,’ must be provided in order to build your component. Choose the ‘Visualforce Area’ component type.
