Asana Desktop App

Overview

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.

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.

App links

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.
