2018 - Slack adds Actions feature for deep integrations. Asana is among first partners


Slack has introduced a new feature called "actions," which takes Slack's existing third-party app integrations to the next level. It lets developers hook their apps even deeper into the chat service so you can do more without ever leaving the app. Instead of the automated experiences developers can create now, actions lets you start using outside services directly from Slack messages. If your company uses the task management software Asana, for example, you can create and assign a new task right from your chats. Or, if you use Zendesk, you can create support tickets directly form a message.

2014 - Asana finally launches iOS app. Slack keeps calm


Popular collaboration service to corporations and groups Asana released a unified iOS application for iPhone and iPad. It provides normal Asana features like task management, search, and calendar capabilities. It also includes a green-colored button that allows quick task making, or taking a note. The app itself sports what the firm called a new “design language” that is more vibrant than what preceded it. That language will, over time, leak into Asana’s web product. In its current form it contains small effects like a heart-based animation and colorful tags. The similar Android app is under construction now.
