How to Get Started With Asana Home | Product Guide


The revamped Home page in Asana is your customizable launchpad to start your work day and collaborate with your team. Now, you can combine key actions in a single view: assign tasks, view recent projects, take quick notes, or collaborate with your teammates without leaving Home.

By designing and personalizing your own space, you can tailor Home to whichever way you feel enables you to best focus and fuel your overall productivity.

Header/Achievements Module

The Achievements module allows you to see how much you have accomplished in a given week or month at a glance.

It outlines tasks you’ve completed as well as tasks you’ve collaborated with others on. Completed tasks can be filtered by week or month by simply clicking on the My Week drop down.

Customize Menu

Customize the look and feel of your Home page so it feels like home.

You can tailor your Homepage to your liking by incorporating widgets and choosing your desired background color. Add, edit or order your widgets to whichever way works best for you. Drag and drop widgets into Home where you will be able to resize and reorder it depending on your visual preference. If you no longer want widgets as part of your Home, click on remove widget and the widget will return to the customize menu.
