Embedding in Asana

Add Whimsical Links to your Asana Project Brief within the Asana Project Overview

To embed Whimsical boards in Asana, copy an embed link or shareable link into your Asana Project by navigating to the Asana Project Overview tab.

In the Key Resources section, click Create a Project Brief. If there's already a Project Brief, click anywhere on the title to open it.

Within the Asana Project Brief, click the + button & select Media from the drop down.

You also can click Edit (top right) in the Brief and paste the shareable Whimsical Link & the board embed will auto-expand.

Copying shareable & embed links from Whimsical

The Asana integration supports both shareable links & embed links from Whimsical. If you want to paste a link & have it auto-expand instead of inserting it via Add Media, use the shareable link option.

Start by going to the airplane icon in the upper right corner of your board

Crop to Current View

  • To showcase a certain piece of information, flip the Crop to Current Viewport toggle. Leave it off to embed a zoomed out view of your entire Whimsical board

Toggle on or off Public Access in the Embed Dialogue

  • A public embed can be viewed by anyone

  • A private embed can only be seen by members of the Whimsical Workspace where the board is stored

Viewing your embed in Asana

  • Zoom in & out using the buttons in the bottom right corner of the embed window

  • Click & drag to move the canvas of the Whimsical board to navigate to different sections of the board

If you click on the Whimsical logo in the lower left, you'll have the option to open the board in Whimsical.
