Asana-created templates make it fast and easy to add new workflows into Asana. By using these templates, you can also follow our suggested ways of tracking your work in Asana, and further customize the projects to match your team’s needs. With Asana templates, you don’t have to build workflows from scratch. You can set up projects to track your work perfectly from the start.

In the Templates tab, you’ll be able to choose from a set of eight different project templates.
Next, you have the option to rename the template, and choose which team the project should go in. You can share the project with your team, or make it private to yourself. Click Create Project when you’re finished. Initially, you may want to make the project private so you can customize it to best fit your workflow before making it public to the team.
If you have a recurring workflow, you can make your own template and then copy the project each time you need to use it.
