Custom field permissions

In an Asana StarterAdvancedEnterprise, and Enterprise+ team, division, or organization, anyone with access to a project can add, edit, or remove its custom fields, assuming they have Editor and not Commenter access within the project. This also applied to users with a team, division or organization on legacy tiers Premium, Business, and Legacy Enterprise.

Organization guests (those that do not have a company email address) are unable to create, edit, or delete custom fields. Neither can they search for them using the advanced search tool. They will only be able to input or edit the values of existing custom fields.

Lock custom fields

Customers on Asana StarterAdvancedEnterprise, and Enterprise+tiers, as well as legacy tiers Business and Legacy Enterprise, have the option to lock custom fields either upon creation or when editing an existing field.

When accessing the settings of a custom field, you can choose to make the custom field editable by all members or to restrict edit access to just yourself.

The custom field lock can be overridden by the member who locked the field or an Asana admin at any time. To unlock a custom field as an admin please reach out to our Support Team.
