I’m excited to announce that we’ve opened up Early Access to Asana for Desktop! Asana’s native desktop app helps you remove distractions so you can focus on the most important work at hand. The app has the same functionality as Asana on the web but pulls Asana out of the sea of browser tabs and onto your desktop.
The desktop version of Asana is available on both Mac and Windows (not supported on Linux) and almost everything about the app is identical between desktop and web. However, there are a few changes to note:
- Native OS notifications: Desktop leverages native OS notifications, which mirror Browser Notifications in functionality.
- In-browser authentication: In order to log in, you’ll need to type in your email address. Then you’ll be redirected to the browser to complete the login process, and then guided back to the desktop app.
- App Links: Desktop users are prompted to open accessed links in the desktop app. You’ll have the ability to open links in Asana once or always, or to cancel and open the link in your browser.
Ready to give Asana for Desktop a try? Head to asana.com/download to download an Early Access version of the app.
We look forward to hearing your feedback in the comments below. Questions are also welcome!
