Create your playbook

Begin by setting up the steps that coordinate between Asana and Google Drive for your workflow.

First, sign up for Relay and go to your dashboard. Click on the "New playbook" button to initiate the playbook creation process.

Name your playbook something like "Asana task completion to Google Drive file upload" and select a relevant emoji, to easily identify it.


Add the "Task completed" Asana trigger

Add the Asana trigger to initiate your playbook's actions before completed tasks.

To do this, click "Add trigger" in your playbook and choose the Asana "Task completed" trigger. This will allow your playbook to automatically detect new completed tasks in Asana and initiate necessary actions.

If you have not previously connected your Asana's account to Relay, a prompt will guide you through the connection process.


Add the Google Drive "Upload files" automation

Integrate the Google Drive automation into your playbook to ensure a Google Drive file is uploaded.

Select "Add step", then locate the "Upload files" automation for Google Drive, and input all the mandatory and relevant details.

If your Google Drive account isn't already connected to Relay, you will be prompted to complete that connection. Make sure to allow the necessary permissions for Relay to upload files in your Google Drive account.


Activate your playbook

Activating your playbook is the final step to automate uploading files in Google Drive. Once turned on, it will automatically upload a file in Google Drive whenever it detects a completed task in Asana without manual intervention.

To enable your playbook, click the toggle button located in the header. It is advisable to perform a test run of your playbook beforehand to ensure all steps work seamlessly together and reminders are being sent correctly.
