Interacting with Sunsama specific task information · 1:05

Your associated Sunsama task acts like a worksheet for your Asana task. Inside your Sunsama task, you can add notes, time tracking information, subtasks, and comments without messing with your Asana task. Use your Sunsama task to track the minutia of the task that your collaborators might not care about inside of Asana.

Completing a task · 1:59

The only field "synced" between Sunsama and Asana is completion status. When you complete a task in Sunsama, linked to Asana, your Asana Automations will fire. Configure your automations to automatically complete the task or to be prompted to update the task's status.
