Asana for Desktop puts Asana where you need it by pulling it out of the sea of tabs and helping you frictionlessly capture your work. By removing distraction, the desktop app helps you find flow and better control your work environment.
The desktop application is available on both Mac and Windows (not supported on Linux.) It can be downloaded here. All actions and features which are available in the browser version of Asana are also available on desktop.
Logging In Via the Desktop App
Once you have downloaded the Desktop App you can log in using your Asana login credentials.
First, open Asana for Desktop, enter your email address and sign into Asana.
Next, you’ll be brought to your browser to verify your credentials.
Finally, click Open Asana to open Asana on your desktop app.
Native OS Notifications
Desktop leverages native OS notifications, which mirror Browser Notifications in functionality.
Once you’ve installed Asana for Desktop, you will be prompted to open accessed links in the desktop app. You have the ability to open in Asana once or always, or to cancel and open the link in your browser.
If you don't have access to app links on the desktop app - don't fret. This feature is slowly being rolled out and should be available to all desktop users soon.
Right Click Functionality
Right click is streamlined to only include Asana uses.
Top Bar and History
The Top Bar of your Desktop App is more focused on a few core navigation actions. The History feature also allows you to access your 15 most recent pages.
