Divisions

Previously most Asana users had three choices when deciding to upgrade to our premium version. It was only possible to pay for either a Workspace, individual teams within an Organization or a full Organization. This offering works well for small and medium sized companies. However, for larger companies, it’s not always possible to fully commit to a full Organizational plan and team plans conversely don’t quite fit their needs either. With Divisional plans, it’s now possible to pay for a subset of your company. You therefore have visibility and control over which individuals you’re paying for and what data that includes. If you’re interested in setting up a Division within your Organization, please contact sales.

SAML for Enterprise Divisions

SAML is a standard that allows Asana to be integrated with company-owned single sign-on systems such as Okta, OneLogin or Microsoft Active Directory. Previously, SAML was only available to our Enterprise Organizations. However if you purchase an Enterprise Division plan, SAML can now be enabled, or required for a Division within an Organization. If you do have an Enterprise Division plan and would like SAML enabled, please fill out the survey here.

Always know what to do next with My Tasks.

It makes managing your work simple.

Click on your My Tasks list and start typing to add tasks.

Like a text document, add a new line for each new task or paste in any list.

Forward to x@mail.asana.com to turn your emails into tasks.

Asana will translate your email into a task, including your attachments.

New tasks will appear at the top of your list in Recently Assigned.

Tasks you add to My Tasks are private to you.

Click Make Public to share them with your team.

Prioritize tasks as Today, Upcoming, or Later.

Click on the blue dot next to the task, to quickly sort it.

Mark the tasks you’ll have time for Today.

Teammates can view your My Tasks list to see what you’re up to.

They’ll only see tasks you’ve made public or shared in a project (more on projects later).

Mark tasks due within a week as Upcoming so you can see what will be due soon.

On its due date, your task will move from Upcoming to Today.

Just like magic.

Mark tasks due in more than a week for Later.

They’ll be out of your way until their due date approaches.

Your tasks will move from Later to Upcoming a week before they’re due.

Keep My Tasks prioritized to always know what to work on and what’s coming next.

Now you know how to track and plan your work!

Next, learn how to work with your team in Asana.

Work together on groups of tasks with projects.

Projects help you track and organize the steps in a process or initiative.

Like an event plan, product launch, or editorial calendar.

Most communication with your team can be more easily managed from Inbox. Just remember to check it often.

Congratulations! Now you’re ready to have a great work day with Asana.
