Coming soon: Asana redesign to help you find what you need quickly and easily

“Over the years, we’ve heard that Asana can feel cluttered and difficult to navigate, especially as you add more work.”

So we made it even more cluttered and difficult to navigate. The projects widget in the home page was already a useless un-organizable widget, but nobody cared since it was completely optional, but now you have made it impossible to opt out of this view. To make matters worse you are rolling it out on a per person basis instead of per organization, so some people have the update while others do not leading to more chaos.

Starting to think “if its broke, break it more!” is Asana’s motto.

Just checking in on the rollout for Premium customers? I want to be sure I’m prepping my team for this change!


It’s been a few months. Anxiously waiting for the release to prep my team!


Me too! I tagged @Marie yesterday and she said we should hear details soon.

Hi everyone! Just wanted to share a quick update on the launch timeline here. We hope to roll this update out to all customers in July. We will make sure to post an update here if something changes!


Good news! :loudspeaker: The Asana redesign is now available to most customers!

If you haven’t received the updated version yet, don’t worry. It will be available to you shortly. Thank you for your patience!


What about the changes to My Tasks sorting and grouping?
Those don’t appear to be covered anywhere but they’ve changed how Sections are treated.

After the “big new version”, Asana puts projects in the sidebar that it THINKS you want to see, or that you have “touched” or accessed in some way. The old version displayed EVERY project that I was a member of OR that I had a task assigned to, in that list. I can find no way to change this behavior back and it’s driving me crazy. Then I went to MY TASKS, and the task assigned to me for the project i was looking for STILL wasn’t there. Once a co-worker went into the task, and @ mentioned me, the project popped up on the sidebar project list.

I have missed tasks after this new redesign. PLEASE - is there a way to revert my project list back to the old format?


PS… adding a simple “ALL” choice to the “…” menu for the Project List would solve this problem. It only says ALPHABETICAL, TOP, RECENT.

Isn’t “alphabetical” exactly the same as an “all”, except it is sorted?

You can’t revert back, and Asana had plenty of time to listen to complaints (weeks of testing) and still deployed, so don’t expect any rollback :sweat_smile:

We have seen on the forum that the new design broke some people’s workflow, but overall I believe the new design was welcomed, at least that’s the feeling I get from talking with clients and users.

My advice: stop using the sidebar that much. Use My Tasks, favorite some projects, use the search… you’ll be better off (in most cases).
