We’re excited to share a new role that we are adding to Asana - team admins! Team admins add guardrails in Asana to support adoption, best practices, and standardization of how work gets done throughout their organizations. See our guide article to learn more about the team admin role.
What capabilities do team admins have?
Team admins will be available for all tiers, and specific capabilities are dependent on the plan you have with Asana.
@Ben_Turewicz, I don’t think the new features will change the existing behavior: Adding a user with your org’s domain to a project will result in an additional seat used (though it won’t automatically add them to the project’s team).
The whole point about having team admin controls is the ability to stop people becoming members of a team. Currently people get added to teams and take up seat spaces when shared a project by any project member, if they have the same email domain.
This means Team admin is ignored by this action Therefore, if someone tries to share a project with someone who isnt on a team, will it have to go through an approval and only Team admin can chose if they can have access to the project, team and seat.
@Ben_Turewicz, As it’s written in the OP, you’ll at least, in the Basic Plan, have the ability to control who is notified upon a request to join a team, and in Enterprise to restrict team members from inviting others.
I’m not sure about any controls in the case of a new member to a project causing another seat to be used. Maybe @Marie can comment?
