Learn about Asana Premium features
Tracking your work in Asana gives you more clarity and accountability so you can get great results. And to get the best results, you need the power of Asana Premium (we know we couldn’t run Asana without it!)
Asana Premium features*
With Asana Premium you’ll get all of the following features in addition to what’s already included in Asana Basic.
Project management made easy
- CSV importer—Move your project plans from spreadsheets into Asana. You’ll see your rows and columns become trackable, actionable tasks with assignees and due dates in a project. Premium users can also map start dates and custom fields.
- Forms—Capture the right details every time for any project brief or request. Forms are directly connected to projects, so once submitted, you can track them all in one place.
- Custom fields—Create drop-down, number, or text custom fields in projects and Portfolios to capture information uniformly, track the status, and to sort and filter information (like spreadsheet columns.) You can also get notifications when custom fields are changed.
- Task dependencies—Mark a task as waiting on another to help keep complex projects on track and ensure the right work is getting done at the right time.
- Start dates—Start dates show when you should begin your work to hit your deadlines without the last-minute scramble.
- Rules—Add rules to automate manual processes like assigning tasks, updating Asana fields, and more.
- Timeline—A Gantt-style view of how each piece of your project fits together that helps you start projects on the right foot and hit your deadlines.
- Asana-created templates—Use our pre-made templates to quickly add new workflows to Asana, based on our best practices. You can further customize the templates to match your workflow as needed.
- Custom templates—Standardize common workflows by creating custom project templates that anyone can use.
Reporting and progress insights
- Milestones—Make project goals clear and keep your team motivated by setting task milestones as key markers of progress.
- Reporting—With Advanced Search, you can find information in Asana based on specific criteria, and save reports to your sidebar for easy access.
Balance privacy and transparency
- Privacy settings—Have the option to make projects and teams private or public, to protect sensitive work, or make it public to your entire organization.
- Admin controls—Designate an administrator to manage users and teams and configure Google SSO for their organization.†
- Comment-only projects—Prevent accidental changes to your projects or templates and allow certain project members to make only task comments, while still giving them access to information in the project.
Get the most out of Asana
- More members—Purchase a plan for your whole team, department, or company. You can also invite guests so vendors, contractors, and other contributors can work with you too.
- Priority support—When you have a question for our team, or need troubleshooting tips, you can skip the line and get the help you need.
- Customer Success resources—Get onboarding resources, recorded trainings, access to our customer community, and learning materials from our Customer Success team to make sure your team is successful using Asana.†
*All Asana Premium features are also included for Asana Business and Enterprise Organizations.
†Available only to Premium Organizations (not Premium teams).
