Team permissions

Access to a team in Asana is contextual, and there are a few permission settings that affect who can access a team, its public projects, and team messages.

If somebody belongs to a team, then they have access to all team messages and public projects within that team.

Organization guests must belong to a team to access its public projects and team messages. If they do not belong to a team, they cannot access that team, nor can they request to join it, regardless of the team's permission settings.

Private team

The only way to gain access to a private team is by being invited by a member of that team.

Users cannot discover private teams they don't have access to, and therefore cannot request to join or even see a private team in their sidebar.

All organization members can see public teams in their sidebar and join them without needing approval.

To join a public team:

  1. Scroll to the bottom of the sidebar and select Browse More Teams
