Asana Instagantt Chrome Plugin

Asana Instagantt Chrome Plugin in action!I’ve been using Asana for a while to manage my personal to-do list, as well as projects for Flightless.co, and I’m really liking it. I have a few gripes, but that’s probably better covered in another post.

Recently, I tried out the Instagantt<->Asana  integration, and it’s really awesome. In fact, it actually remedies one of my complaints with Asana for timeline management. After playing around, however, my laziness got the best of me, and I was annoyed that I had to open Instagantt separately (#FirstWorldProblems, amirite?).

I decided Asana needed a link to open Instagantt directly from the Tasks dashboard, so I wrote an Asana Instagantt Chrome plugin that would inject one 🙂

It’s really simple, but gets the job done. It also shows some basics (and one or two not-so-basics) of Chrome Plugin building, if you’ve been thinking about writing one yourself. Take a look at the code on Github.

Update: “Open Instagantt from Asana” is now available in the Chrome Webstore!

    Thanks for making this. Any chance of getting a new one created for the latest edition of Asana? Our organization sure could use the connection! Thanks.

      Hey John — Sorry that the plugin has stopped working with the rebuild! I’m not sure at the moment what the timeline would look like for that. I spent a few hours after the new version was released, and it wasn’t as straightforward as I had hoped, owing to the fact that the new version uses a technology called ReactJS which is less kind to things being injected at random. I’m aware of the issue and hoping to resolve it soon. Wish I had a better answer for you 🙁
