Asana is built to support any team, from early-stage startups to the largest enterprises. To do this, we offer a flexible approach to our pricing plans. In this article, we’ll break down the basics of an Asana subscription so you can be sure to find the plan that suits your needs best.
A subscription is made of two component parts; the plan tier you need, and the number of seats you require, e.g. a 50-seat Asana Advanced plan, or a 250-seat Asana Enterprise subscription.
You can visit our pricing page to find the right plan for your team.
The first factor which determines pricing is the tier chosen for the subscription. Asana offers a choice of 5 tiers to suit different requirements.
Choose from Starter, Advanced, Enterprise, or Enterprise+ tiers to avail of a variety of features based on your company’s needs. Asana Personal is a free tier available for up to 10 people, ideal for individuals and small teams looking to manage their tasks.
For more information on Asana's tiers, see our pricing page.
The second factor which determines pricing is the size of the subscription. This is sometimes referred to as the number of seats, or the number of licenses covered by the plan.
When it comes to the size of your subscription, Asana grows with your team. The smallest subscription available is a 2-seat plan. Next, Asana offers 3-, 4- and 5-seat plans. Subscription size then increases in increments of 5, up to 30 seats. For example, a 15-, 20-, or 25-seat subscription is possible, but a 29-seat plan is not. Above 30 seats, subscription size increases in increments of 10, up to 100 seats, and 25 thereafter.
Built with collaboration in mind, Asana does not offer a 1-seat plan. Apart from the 2-, 3-, and 4-seat plans listed above, it is not possible to add a single seat to a subscription.
Who counts towards my Asana plan?
Asana offers you the flexibility of choosing where your subscription sits, thereby controlling which people are covered by your paid plan. You can choose to provide Enterprise feature access to the hundreds of people in your Asana organization, or select a specific 15-person team who need access to Starter features.
Who you pay for is decided by where the subscription sits –meaning which Asana space– and which people are part of that space. Members of that space will count towards your bill.
Note that guests do not count towards your bill, and do not take up a space on your subscription’s seat limit. Guests are available in teams, divisions, and organizations. For example, for a team of 12 people made up of 10 organization members and 2 guests, a 10-seat subscription on their specific Asana team will suffice.
Workspaces do not have guests, and every workspace member counts towards the subscription’s seat limit.
Asana spaces: organizations, teams, divisions, and workspaces
As mentioned earlier in this article, a paid Asana plan can cover different spaces, and it's important for the billing owner or admins to know where the subscription sits.
Organizations connect all the people at your company using Asana in a single space based on your company’s shared email domain. A subscription can sit at the organization level and cover every organization member.
- Members: An organization member is a person using Asana who shares your organization’s email domain. If their email is firstname.lastname@example.org, they’ll be a member of the acme.com organization. When a subscription sits at the organization level, it covers every member of the organization, meaning every organization member is considered in each billing cycle.
- Guests: Guests are users who do not share the same email domain as your organization. Guests are often external users such as vendors, clients, freelancers, or consultants. Guests are free, and do not take up a space on your subscription’s seat limit.
Teams are spaces inside of organizations. When the subscription only covers one team, only the members of that team are considered in the billing cycle. Guests who have been invited into the team do not cost anything.
Divisions are also part of organizations. With a division plan, where a single subscription covers multiple teams, every member of those teams counts towards the seat limit. Someone who is part of many teams in a single division is only counted against the subscription’s seat limit once. Guests again are not considered in the billing cycle.
Workspaces are different to organizations, and function as a fully separate space. A workspace is a collection of people that collaborate on projects and tasks. Workspaces can be used by any group of people and do not require a common company email domain. Unlike organizations, anyone collaborating in a workspace counts towards the paid plan, whether full members or limited access members. There are also no guests in workspaces.
