Clarified Product Navigation: To help you manage your work in Asana, we’ve made some layout and user interface (UI) changes. You can now access My Tasks, Inbox, and Dashboards from the sidebar, and the top bar has been simplified so the project header is easier to navigate. Also, the search bar and Quick Add + button are now in the right side of the top bar next to the Help menu. Learn more

Typeahead style update: When you use search, add tasks to multiple projects or add collaborators, the results are shown in a cleaner, compact style so it’s easier to find the information you need.

Add collaborators from Quick add: You can now add collaborators to a task when you use the Quick Add + button to create a task in Asana.

Indent bulleted and numbered lists in rich text: It’s now easier to format your bulleted and numbered lists with the indent rich text menu option so you can highlight important information and add structure to your task descriptions and comments.

Restrict Guest Invites: Enterprise Admins can now set a policy for who is allowed to invite external guests into their Organization. They can set the policy to only admins, admins and members, or anyone.

Access PDF of last invoice: Admins can now access their more recent invoice in the Billing tab of their settings menu

New icons: You might’ve noticed some new icons in Asana—they’re now more visually consistent across the app.

Updated celebration characters: Our celebration characters are updated! To see them, go complete a task. Learn how to turn on the celebrations.

Task edit on iOS: We’ve updated the task design in the iOS app, making it easier to update tasks—so you can spend less time editing, and more time completing them.

Inline task shortcuts on Android: We’ve updated inline task creation to include assignee, due date, and attachment shortcuts. It’s also now possible to expand the inline task creation view to add a description and subtasks. This is already available on iOS.

Updated comment composer for iOS and Android: It’s now even easier to comment on work when you’re on the go with our updated comment composer on mobile. We’ve added hotkeys to comments so you can quickly tag teammates, take photos, or upload existing images from your mobile device directly into Asana.

Search in the API: Our API team built an endpoint that mirrors the functionality of Advanced Search in the web app. Learn more.

Support for PayPal: You can now pay for Asana Premium and Enterprise with PayPal. Just select this payment option on the billing page.
