Project management is such an evolving and up-and-coming sphere that sometimes it’s hard to keep up with it. That’s why you always need to follow the trends among the project management platforms. So, in case you’ve been using Asana but now want to migrate to a new project management platform, then we’ve got a solution for you. 

Our Relokia team tries to stay on track with all changes in the world of project management. So this is the reason why we’ve made sure the migration from Asana is available for our customers. In collaboration with our service, you can transfer your data flawlessly and swiftly.

We developed our tool, Migration Wizard, with our customers in mind, so it is easy to operate and requires no additional knowledge. In addition, we will migrate only the data that you need on your new platform, leaving unessential records behind. Moreover, our tool preserves all connections between records as you transfer them from one platform to another.  

What Records Can Migrate from Asana

When you decide to migrate from one platform to another, it’s essential to check what types of entities can be transferred so that you don’t lose some crucial data. As for Asana, Migration Wizard makes it possible to export: 

  • Custom field values
  • Tasks (together with Comments and Attachments) 
  • Subtasks (together with Comments and Attachments) 
  • Task and Subtask Dates (including “Started at” dates, “Due” dates, and “Completed at” dates)
  • Users 
  • Sections

As you can understand, our tool allows you to migrate a long list of your features to maintain all the key data after the export.

Prepare for Migration from Asana

This process won’t take a lot of time, though it is essential to take some important steps to ensure the migration runs smoothly. So, check the following before proceeding with the migration process:

1. If you have created an account on your target platform. You need to know where to transfer your data. You can check out the list of supported platforms on our website to see if your preferred software is available;

2. If you have crucial access information for both source and target platforms. Without it, our Wizard Migration tool won’t be able to create a connection with the project management software;

3. If you acquire admin rights on both platforms to perform the migration. 

A tip from our team: To make the migration process even more affordable, you can go through your entities before transferring and delete unuseful data so that you don’t have to pay for unnecessary information!
