Homepage and team pages
While your team or Organization may have multiple projects that they’re working from at any given time, there are likely a few specific projects that matter most to you. With your Homepage, you’re able to easily access your most important projects so you don’t have to spend time searching for what you need, and spend more time getting your work done.
Your Homepage shows you two types of projects: The projects that you’ve favorited show as tiles at the top of your Homepage, and projects you’ve recently visited in the “Recent Projects” list view below your favorite projects. To access a project directly from your Homepage, simply click on the tile or list item.
You can switch between tile view and list view for both your favorited and recent projects at any time.
To change your project view on your Homepage
- Click on the Change view icon on the top right of each list.
- Select View as tiles or View as list
Navigating to My Tasks
You will automatically land in your Homepage whenever you open a new Asana window. To navigate to your My Tasks, click on the ‘My tasks’ link in the top of your sidebar.
You can no longer default your first view of Asana to be your My Tasks, but if you’re looking to access your My Tasks more quickly, we recommend bookmarking your My tasks in your web browser for easy access.
To favorite a project, search for a project, go to the selected project and click the star icon located directly next to the project’s title. That will make the project show up in your sidebar, as well as on your Homepage.
To unfavorite a project, click on the star icon by the favorited project’s name to unstar it. You can also easily unfavorite a project from your Homepage.
To unfavorite a project from your Homepage:
- Click the three dot icon when hovering over a project
- Select Remove from Favorites
Once you do this, the project will no longer show up in the favorite section of your Homepage or in your sidebar.
You can also drag the projects on your Homepage to reorder your favorite projects. Any change you make to the order of your favorite projects on your Homepage will be reflected in your sidebar as well.
Under your favorite projects you’ll also be able to see the projects you most recently visited. By default, these will show in a list view but you can click the menu icon next to the section titled ‘Recent Projects’ to change to tile view at any time.
You can’t remove any of the projects from your Recent Projects section but as you work in Asana and visit different projects, the list of Recent Projects will update accordingly.
Your Homepage will also show you when action happens in your projects, so you can easily understand what projects may need your attention first.
When viewing your recent projects in tile view, you’ll see a New badge that shows up in the top left corner of a new project that has been shared with you or if you’ve been assigned a task in a project you haven’t visited before.
If you hover over the New badge, it will show you the most recent activity that pertains to you in the project.
We’ve also made updates to our team pages in Asana. Now when you visit a team page in Asana, you’ll get more context about the purpose of the team, who’s in it, and what they’re working on.
You can click into the conversations tab of your Team Page to scroll through recent discussions on different projects within your team and quickly get caught up to speed.
