Organizations

If you're signing up for an Asana account under a corporate email domain, you will be either prompted to create a team in your new organization, or if there is already an organization set up, you can request to join existing teams within this organization.

Create a team in a new organization:

Once you've signed up to Asana under a corporate domain and have created an organization, you will be prompted to create a new team. Enter the team’s name and tap Next on the top right of the screen.

Joining an existing organization:

Once you've signed up to Asana under a corporate domain with an organization associated with it, you can request to join existing teams within this organization. Select the teams you want to join and tap Next at the top of the screen.

An email domain can only be associated with one organization at a time, although it is possible to have multiple domains associated with one organization.

Using Asana offline

You can use Asana for iOS offline to check your notifications, comment on tasks, change due dates or assignees, and complete tasks on the go. When you create a task or comment offline, you’ll see a banner at the bottom of your app letting you know “Asana is offline.”

For larger actions such as creating or editing tasks, subtasks, projects, or comments, a light grey cloud icon will appear next to those which have not been synced. This means that they are currently only visible to you. When you are online, these changes will sync and your entire team will be able to see the updated tasks, projects, and conversations.

A tally at the bottom of the app counts the actions you’ve performed offline. When you're online again, the pending number will count down until all your updates are live in Asana and the gray cloud icons will disappear.

Tasks and conversations within a project that have never been opened on your app will not be visible offline, but you can add tasks to these projects offline.

Push notifications

If you have notifications for your iOS device turned on, you will receive push notifications for the following stories:

  • A task has been assigned to you
  • A task you've been assigned and/or collaborating on has a comment posted
  • A task you've been collaborating on is marked as complete
  • A task you've been assigned is due (sent around 7-8am on the day of the task's due date)
  • A message or status update is posted in a team or workspace that you belong to
  • An attachment has been added to the work you're collaborating on

When you select the Asana icon from the top of your phone to see your notifications, you will find them batched. Pinch and expand to see more info, or tap through your Asana Inbox.

By default, push notifications are turned on.

Managing your push notifications

To access your push notification controls, tap on the Push icon from your account tab. From the next screen, you can toggle on and off the selected push notifications.
