Can I view tasks from different workspaces and organizations in the same place?

I don’t want to be in this organization, how do I leave it?

Organizations are tied to a specific email domain and use this domain to determine membership. This means that if an organization is tied to for example, any user with an email address will automatically be an organization member. When you leave an organization, your .edu email address will be removed from your Asana account, so if you’d like to leave the organization you’ll first need to ensure that you have added another verified email address in Asana.
