In this tutorial, we will create a new task in Asana, each time a Task is created in Shortlist.
First, you will need to create an account on Zapier, allowing end-users like you to integrate with web applications you use every day. Shortlist leverages Zapier to connect with Asana and thousands of other apps.
Once you create your account, click on this link to add the Shortlist app to your Zapier account:
(Note: The Shortlist Zapier app is currently still in the beta phase, so you will need to click on the above link to access it.)
You should see the following screen.
Click: Make a New Zap
Step 1. Configure Shortlist connection
From the app list, select Shortlist. While we are in the beta stage, you may see a lot of versions available. Make sure to select 1.05 as per the image below:
Next, select Choose Trigger Event. Since we are creating a new Task in Asana only when Task is created, we need to select "New Task"
Now, you should be prompted to Sign-In to your Shortlist account when you select the blue Continue button.
If you are using version 1.05, you will need to enter your Shortlist URL. Follow the pattern in the description, <customer>.shortlist.co where the customer is your account name.
(Note: Do not include "https://" or "http://")
If everything was successful, you should see the following screen. Click Continue and move to Step 2.
Step 2. Configure a trigger.
Next, you will get a chance to test your trigger. We encourage you to do that.
Zapier will pull data from your Shortlist account. In this case, as long as you have some new Tasks in your account, it should work fine.
Click Test & Review, and you will get 3 recent tasks pulled.
Great, you are halfway there! Now, we need to tell Zapier what to do when it detects that a new task is created.
Step 3. Connect your Asana account
Type Asana and select it from the list:
Next, we need to tell Asana what to do. You will see that Asana has made a lot of action events possible. In this tutorial, we will use Create Task.
Click Continue and Sign-In to your Asana account.
Next, agree to connect Salesforce to Zapier.
Step 4. Configure Your Action in Asana
You will see Customize Task screen. Enter the required information.
Step 5. Pushing your Zap live.
When everything is fully configured, you should see the screen below:
Finally, the last step is to turn your Zap ON. Now, with every new task created, there will be a Task created in Asana.
