Asana is the easiest way for you and your team to track your work.
Here in Help, 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.
Watch the Asana demo
Create an account by signing up
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
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).
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.
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.
Identify the type of space in Asana that best suits your needs
The table below outlines the differences between Workspaces, teams and Organizations.

Identify your current Workspace or Organization
The name in the top right corner of the screen identifies the Workspace or Organization you’re currently viewing.
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.
To switch between your Workspaces and Organizations:
- Click your profile photo in the top right corner
- From the dropdown menu, select the Workspace or Organization you want to access
