How to create forms in Asana

Whether your business is a small startup, a large enterprise, or something in between, you need a project management solution to keep everyone organized, communicating, and collaborating on all tasks and projects.

Project management software — like Asana — lets users say goodbye to lengthy email chains and siloed tracking systems and hello to clearly defined tasks and responsibilities in addition to improved project planning and scheduling.

With Asana, you can track your work on kanban boards, create automated processes using its powerful workflow builder, and see actionable data in real time on customizable, shareable charts and dashboards. It’s also user-friendly and includes all the tools you need to manage tasks and projects — thanks to its growing list of app integrations — without ever having to leave the app.

Another important feature in Asana is the ability to create forms to delegate tasks or standardize data collection for projects (in an employee or customer feedback survey, for example). It’s especially critical to understand how to create forms in Asana because they can be used to add new tasks to a project. When someone fills out your form, it shows up as a new task in the parent project.

How to create forms in Asana

Forms are included with Premium, Business and Enterprise plans. Here’s how to create forms in Asana’s Premium plan, which is one tier up from its Basic package:

  1. Access your project in Asana and navigate to the Customize tab on the right side of the screen.
  2. Click Add form to create, edit, and share your form. You can update the name of the form or add a description.
  3. Add a name, email address, or additional questions from the form window.
    • To add additional questions, click the Settings tab on the right sidebar.
      • Under this tab, you can also adjust Task settings, like selecting a default team member to assign each form submission to or copying all answers to the task description. Below Form settings, you can also include a button enabling users to easily complete another submission.
  4. After you’ve added your questions, you can customize your form further.
    • Change or edit the question name and add a question description.
    • Add attachments — like briefs, images, and documents — by clicking on the Attachment button under the Questions tab. (Once your form is submitted, any attachment included will subsequently attach to the task that’s created in your project.)
    • Decide which fields are required.
  5. Preview the form to see how it will appear to submitters by clicking View Form above the Questions tab.
  6. When you’re ready to share the form, click the Copy link button to copy it to your clipboard. You can share your form link with any of your colleagues in Asana as well as those without an Asana account.
    • Once the submitter completes the form, you’ll see their submission as a new task in your project, where you can prioritize it or change task details.

Some form features are only available to Business and Enterprise users. If you need more functionality, try a full-featured, online form builder like Jotform, which has no customization limitations for forms — no matter what type of account you have.
