Disabling file attachments

The ability to disable file attachments is an Enterprise feature.

Overview

The disabling file attachments feature allows Admins to ensure that Asana implementations across their organization meet all security and consistency requirements related to blocking any file attachments that are restricted as per their company’s security policies and preferred file integrations.

This feature gives better controls at a domain level, in order to ensure strict upload policies in accordance with their organizational requirements.

IT Admins will also have a quick way to enable or disable one or more or all of “Computer”, “Dropbox”, “Google Drive”, “Box” and “Onedrive / Sharepoint” upload sources as per their company’s IT security policies and have it applied across all Asana product surface areas where attachments can be added.

How to access your file attachment options

Admins can access their file attachments options settings through the Security tab of their Admin Console.

When you’ve opened the Security tab, scroll down to Additional settings and then click File attachment options.

The only way to disable on mobile is by disabling allow attachments from all devices.
