Attach Files to Projects without going through Task



Current state for uploading/attaching documents is to use a task. I would like the ability to simply upload a file directly to the “files” section of the project. By forcing that the file is uploaded to a task I have to create a placeholder task simply named the name of the file. This is reporting on my Instagantt chart incorrectly and is creating bloat in my Asana project. Thanks for you consideration.


I have exactly the same question. People in my studio showed me how they do it with Notion… I understand that attachments must be related to a task, and that Asana is not a container of information, but this feature will be very helpful as there are files that are best related to a whole project. The best I have found so far is to put files in a google drive folder and then paste the link into the project description…but this is still not integrated enough.


I was just trying to figure out how to do the same thing, but am now realizing it can’t be done in Asana. Drat.


I’m also looking for the same solution. would be great to be able to create a folder of files for each project so everyone can view it. Google drive can also work


I don’t think Asana will ever do this, but maybe I’m wrong. The thought is that projects are a collection of tasks, which is why you have to attach a document to a specific task rather than have a files section for a project. The way we have started to do this is to create a section called Project Information and a task with [PROJECT DESCRIPTION] or [PLEASE READ FIRST]. Then we include any information we need to share as project owners to the team as well as attaching any files. I hope that helps.
