Managing workspaces

Asana accounts are free and are tied to individual users. Asana accounts grant access to shared workspaces and organizations to collaborate 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. These workspaces and organizations you belong to are their own separate entities, each with their own unique set of people, projects, and tasks.

Deactivate a workspace

Since workspaces are shared spaces, leaving a workspace does not delete the projects and tasks in it.

If your workspace is no longer needed, you can deactivate it by:

  • Removing all tasks
  • Removing all projects
  • Removing all other members

Once everything has been deleted, and you're the only remaining member, you can leave the workspace.

A workspace can only be accessed by those invited. If all members have been removed, the workspace will no longer be accessible.

It is not possible to archive workspaces.
