Besides receiving replies automatically from your designer, you can also "zap" your design files straight to your Asana task!

What You'll Need:

  • An Asana account

  • A Zapier account

  • A Design Pickle account

  • 5-10 minutes to set up the Zap

  • With this one, you will also need an existing Asana post with a Design Pickle tag (or the tag you've set up on your previous Zap for submitting requests with Asana) This is where you'll get the Zapier Item ID, which is very important!

Head over to Zapier and start a new zap. It should look like this:

For the Application, choose Design Pickle and File Delivered for the trigger, and Attach File as the action.

Click "Use Zap" and let's set it up!

Step One: Setting up the Trigger

1) Connect your Design Pickle account, if you haven't done so already.

  • If you haven't connected your Design Pickle account with Zapier, review this article to learn about your API Token.

2) Zapier will need to look for data in your account (be sure you have previously delivered files from Design Pickle before setting up this Zap), and once it finds something, you can hit "Continue"

Step Two: Setting up the "Action"

When the "Trigger" (File Delivered) happens, Zapier will then complete the "Action" we're about to set up.

1) Ensure that the Action is Attach File, then click "Continue"

2) Connect your Asana account.

3) Now it's time to customize the file. Select the fields, so your Zap looks like the one below:

  • Choose the Project where your Design Pickle requests will live within Asana

  • For Task, select the "Request Zapier Item ID"

  • And for File, choose "File URL"

4) Finally, send a test. If the file appears in the Asana task, you are ready to turn your Zap on!

P.S: Typically the zap will fire around every 15 minutes or so! So please be patient if you notice a request has been completed and it hasn't uploaded any files yet.
