Map users

Since Asana doesn’t provides user email addresses, Yanado can’t match Asana users with Yanado users without your help.

All you have to do is to map users from Yanado to users from Asana and Yanado will do the magic.

On the left side of the page you have list of Yanado users and on the right side you have a dropdown with all users from Asana. For each Yanado user you must select matching user from Asana.

Once you have mapped all the users, click on the SUBMIT button and Yanado will import everything for you.
