Advanced division management

A division plan allows you to upgrade multiple teams under one subscription. Each division member will only count towards a single seat, even if they are members of multiple teams within that division. This article covers division FAQs relating to privacy and permissions, reporting and multiple division plans within one Asana organization.

Permissions

How do divisions affect team and project visibility and permissions?

Division's do not impact team and project visibility directly. It might be useful to think of a division as a container which holds a number of teams. The division holds a paid subscription. That subscription then provides those teams with access to paid features. For example; a Starter division’s subscription provides Starter features to the teams included in that division.

The individual project and team permissions will remain unchanged. The division has no impact on visibility or permissions itself.

Reporting

How do divisions impact reporting and analytics in Asana?

Divisions have no impact on reporting. You cannot report on a division itself but can report on teams that are part of the division.

Subscriptions

Can I have multiple divisions with different subscription tiers?

Yes, you can have multiple divisions within your organization. Users often create divisions with different tiers in order to provide specific departments or teams with access to the features they need. For example; you can create an Advanced division for the Revenue department including the Sales and Marketing teams. You can then create a separate Starter division for the Operations department including the IT and Support teams. Each division would have separate subscriptions and invoices and can have different billing owners.

Just because you've upgraded multiple teams to a certain tier by using a division, doesn't mean that you can't upgrade a separate single team to any tier you like. If one team is part of a different cost center for example, it may be appropriate in certain cases to upgrade that team with its own separate subscription rather than adding it to an existing division.

You cannot create a separate division or team plan if your organization already has an organization-wide subscription. In this case, all organization members already have access to paid features.

Can a division exist inside an organization that already has an organization-wide paid subscription?

No, you cannot create a separate division or team plan if your organization already has an organization-wide subscription. With an organization-wide plan, all organization members already have access to paid features.

If you wish to give certain members access to Starter features and give a team or group of teams access to Advanced, Enterprise or Enterprise+ features, we would advise creating two separate divisions within your organization. The organization itself would be on a free plan in this case.
