Asana Project Timeline

Import tasks from Asana into OnePager to create a timeline for each phase of your project.

OnePager builds project timelines from Asana by importing tasks and sub-tasks, and then grouping them by phase, like this:

If you don't already have OnePager, click the button above to download a free trial. Then, follow these instructions to get started:

  1. Start with your project in Asana and switch to the List view. Click on the Show Fields button and see if you already have a field called OnePager in your Asana account. If so, turn it on. If not, then click on Manage custom fields instead:

    Asana project

  2. If you already have a OnePager custom field, skip to the next step. Otherwise, click on Add custom field and either Choose from library or Create a new Single-select field called OnePager with Yes/No values, like this:

    Create a custom field in Asana to drive which tasks are imported into OnePager.

  3. With the OnePager custom field inserted into your Asana project, place a "Yes" next to any tasks that you'd like to include in your project timeline:

  4. Now it's time to import your Asana project into OnePager. Launch OnePager from your desktop:

    Launch OnePager Bundle to import from Asana.

  5. On the OnePager start screen, choose New to start building a new Asana timeline:

    OnePager start screen.

  6. From the import wizard, go to Select > BROWSE Asana:

    Browse Asana from OnePager.

    If this is your first time using OnePager with Asana, you will see a sign-in screen from Asana so that OnePager can connect to your Asana account.

  7. Once connected to Asana, OnePager will display a list of all of your available projects. Click on the one that you'd like to import, and then click OK:

    List of Asana projects available for import into OnePager.

  8. Back on the import wizard, select the OnePager Yes/No field as your selection filter:

    Filter your asana project using a custom field

  9. To finish the import from Asana, click Create New Chart. This will create a Gantt Chart from Asana, and in the following steps, we'll convert it to a timeline:

  10. To switch from a Gantt chart to a timeline layout, go to Home > Chart Properties > Rows/Swimlanes, and adjust the Task Layout to a Timeline and make sure to Align tasks on the Level 1 Summary Name, which is the main parent task for each set of sub-tasks in Asana:

    Switch from a Gantt chart to a timeline layout based on the parent and sub-tasks in Asana.

    When switching from a Gantt Chart to a Timeline layout, it's also a good idea to increase the height of your rows in OnePager, which you can do on the Page Layout tab. This helps improve readability when you have lots of text and lots of tasks in the same row.

  11. Click OK, and OnePager will reposition the Asana tasks in your chart so that each set of sub-tasks appears in its own timeline layout based on the overall phase of the project:
