Your Asana account

Asana accounts are free and are tied to individual users. Asana accounts grant access to shared workspaces and organizations to enable collaboration with other Asana users.

With a single Asana account, you can create or join multiple workspaces and organizations to collaborate with various groups of Asana users. The spaces you belong to are their own separate entities, each with their own unique set of people, projects, and tasks.

Since each workspace and organization are their own separate entities, your colleagues cannot see the other spaces you belong to, nor can you see the other spaces your colleagues may belong to. Learn more about privacy between these spaces.

Create an account

You can sign up for Asana yourself, or you can accept an invitation to join. Creating an Asana account is free.

We'll ask for your name and email address when you sign up. You can add other email addresses to your account later. Use your work email if you want to belong to your company's Asana organization. If you sign up with your work email and there is an existing organization set up under this corporate domain, you can then request to join the teams within the organization.

You don't need to maintain multiple accounts. You can join, create, or leave any number of organizations or workspaces from a single account.

From the home page

To create an account for yourself, visit https://asana.com and select Get Started.

Logging in with SAML

Available on Asana Enterprise and Enterprise+ tiers, and legacy tier Legacy Enterprise.

If your organization has SAML enabled, a password isn't required to log into your account. Your account will be authenticated with just your email address.

To log into your account with SAML enabled:

Alternatively, users in SAML-enabled organizations can also log into their accounts using a custom URL. Just add your company's email domain at the end of the URL, https://app.asana.com/a/ to access your custom login portal.

For example, members of the acme.com organization can log into their accounts from https://app.asana.com/a/acme.com

Members of organizations with SAML requirements must log into their account using their SAML related email address, regardless of how many email addresses they have on their account.

Login detection

Users should get an email to notify them that we have noticed a new login to their account. This is a security feature recognising we detect login activity.

This email will go out to users when they:

  • Use a browser + IP address combination for the first time

This applies to logins with username and password, Google SAML-based single sign-on (SSO) authentication.
