Asana helps users stay up to date and organized with their projects using real-time notifications. The Asana bot provides the ability to create, update, and search for tasks and subtasks directly from Webex.
Bots in Webex
Bots can help to extend the functionality in Webex to include a third-party app. You can add bots to Webex spaces and interact directly with the third-party app from the space. When you've added the bot to the space you can send a help message to the bot and the response includes the commands that the bot supports.
You can add a bot to any type of space. Add a bot to your project space with other people and interact directly with the third-party app in your space. Or you can create a space with just you and the bot to interact with the third-party app.
The Cisco Webex App Hub contains a catalog of bots and apps developed by Cisco and third-party developers.
Cards in Webex
Bots can present information within Webex in various ways. However, using cards makes it easier for users to interact directly with the bot’s response to a command. You can select from drop-down menus, use buttons, and even use text fields to update and gather information.
For more information on the cards framework, see https://developer.webex.com/blog/new-buttons-cards.
You can report any issues on the bot with cards to email@example.com
