If you’re already set up your projects and team members in Asana, you can import them into Harvest.

Note: You must have administrator permissions in Harvest to authorize and import from Asana, and this functionality isn’t available to accounts on the free plan.

You can also enable tracking time to Harvest in your Asana account, as described in this article.

Authorize Harvest to Access Asana

We’ll need access to your Asana account in order to import. Follow these steps to authorize this access:

  1. Head to Settings in Harvest.
  2. Scroll down to the Integrations section.
  3. Click Connect to Asana, then click Let’s Get Started.
  4. If you’re not already signed in to Asana, enter your Asana email and password and click Log In.
  5. Click Allow to give Harvest permission to access your Asana account.

Import Projects and People from Asana

Once you’ve authorized Harvest to access your Asana account, you can immediately start importing your projects and people. We recommend only importing the projects and people you actively need in Harvest.

  1. Select the projects you’d like to import, then click Import Projects.
    • Your team or workspace names in Asana will import as clients in Harvest.
    • If you don’t need to import projects from Asana yet, click Import Later.
  2. On the next screen, select the people you’d like to import, then click Import People.
    • Importing people will invite them to join your Harvest account with regular user permissions.
    • Imported team members will be added to the same projects in Harvest that they’re assigned to in Asana.
    • If you don’t need to import people from Asana yet, click Import Later.

You can return to the import flow at any time to import additional projects and people:

  1. Head to Settings in Harvest.
  2. Scroll down to the Integrations section.
  3. Click Import Projects and People from Asana.

Disconnect and Deauthorize Harvest and Asana

At any time you can disconnect Asana from Harvest, which will remove the ability to import projects and people from the Harvest settings. You can also deauthorize Harvest from having access to your Asana account.

Note that disabling Harvest time tracking in Asana is a separate process, as described in this article.
