Set up your domain

Asana is the easiest way for you and your team to track your work.

Here in Support, you'll find all the detailed documentation for Asana features, learn how to set up your Organization or Workspace, create projects and tasks, understand permission settings, invite teammates, get to know Premium features, and more.

Whether you sign up for Asana yourself or are invited by somebody else, you start by creating an Asana account. Asana accounts are free and tied to individuals; Asana accounts grant access to shared Workspaces and Organizations to collaborate with other Asana users.

Create an account by signing up

Create an account on homepage

If you sign up for an Asana account yourself, we will help you create a Workspace to start out with. Then, you can invite other people and create projects and tasks.

Create an account by accepting an invitation

Create an account through an invitation

If you are invited to Asana by another person, you are being invited into their Workspace or Organization where you can collaborate on projects and tasks with your invitee (and their colleagues).

  1. Enter your Name
  2. Enter your company email address
  3. Choose a profile photo
  4. Create a password

Regardless if you sign up or were invited, you have the option to create additional Workspaces to work with different groups of people in Asana.

Work with different groups using one account

With a single Asana account, you can create or join multiple Workspaces & Organizations to collaborate with various groups of Asana users; these Workspaces and Organizations you belong to are their own separate entities, each with their own unique set of people, projects, and tasks.

Your Asana account is tied to your email address. You can create and join Asana Organizations and Workspaces to track your work with tasks, projects, and conversations

Since each Workspace and Organization are their own separate entities, your colleagues cannot see the other Workspaces or Organizations you belong to, nor can you see the other Workspaces & Organizations your colleagues may belong to.

Switch between your Workspaces and Organizations

Each Workspace and Organization you belong to is its own separate entity and each have their own set of projects and tasks. Since every Workspace and Organization is its own entity, you must explicitly switch between them to access your projects and tasks.
