Might have to do with the left-hand menu redesign Asana is working on. They are currently testing various layouts and usually you can submit your feedback on the bottom left in Asana.
More info here: 🔬 Sign up for early access to our next redesign
Is that what you are referring to as well? Do you see that change in your Asana?
@ZacharyAlso , I think the question was related to the project order on the left hand side and not related to tasks.
Anyways, your hint is a common “mistake” when having issues with sorting tasks manually by drag & drop! So I guess this will help the one or another…
Thanks for your reply, that’s exactly what I’m referring to. I checked the page you linked for the redesign information and filled out the response form. When I finished the form, the redirect page said that it’s possible to deactivate the redesign test layout and revert back to the regular interface in the hacks menu, but my hacks menu doesn’t include that setting.
Does anyone know if it’s still possible to turn off the new menu redesign?
Hm good question so normally when you specifically sign up for some new testing like this one was then you can opt-out, however Asana also sometimes runs A/B tests in general for all users or part of their process so I am not quite sure if you can opt-out. @Marie any idea in Alyssa’s case?
If it helps Marie or anyone else, I don’t believe I opted in. I never filled out the form or anything. It’s just a pretty new workspace and when it was built, it had the new set up. My other older workspaces still have the old one. My guess would be that since I never opted in, it would make some sense if I couldn’t opt out.
I’ve payed new organization. And now my projects shown as a one list, not grouped by teams. Below there are teams, but to view their projects, you should point mouse to team, it’s not convenient.
I cannot change it in settings, how could i change side bar to standard look, where projects grouped by teams, list of project opened by clicking on triangle near team name.
Best regards, Timur Sharapudinov.
Hi folks and sorry for the delay in responding here.
I think we have two situations here:
Folks who have volunteered to opt-in 🔬 Sign up for early access to our next redesign. If that’s your case, you should see a “send feedback” link in the bottom left of your sidebar (see screenshot below) and you should have the option to opt-out in Product.
Folks who were randomly enrolled in one of our A/B test related to our sidebar redesign. If that’s your case, you should not see the “send feedback” link in the bottom left of your sidebar (see screenshot below). In this case, you cannot opt out of the test, but we encourage you to share your feedback here so we can take it onboard as we continue iterating on these updates.
I believe most of you are in the second group and were enrolled in one of the A/B tests we’re currently running. Please continue to share your feedback here, and I will ensure to share it directly with our product team.
I’m afraid we don’t have even this button “share feedback”! What should i do next? Support doesn’t answer my emails. Work in this design is just impossible for our team? Should i disconnect my domain and set up a new organization?
@Timur_Sharapudinov, I’m sorry that this new layout isn’t working for you. The best thing I can do is ask you why specifically it doesn’t work for you so your feedback can be taken onboard. The A/B test will likely run for 6 weeks, after which we will either roll out this update as it is or iterate it before rolling it to all customers - hence why your feedback is important.
6 weeks from what moment? This is common moment for all or from the moment i start my organization? Your announcement for sign up of this Side bar look is at 22th of october, 6 weaks have been passed already.
Specifically, it’s extremely uncomfortable, that project’s are not grouped in teams, and a cannot sort them inside by drag and drop, as in standard look, and thus we have mess when there are much projects.
And could you please once again explain, what exactly happen in 6 weeks? Either you proceed with new design to everybody, or roll back to all users, right?
Hi @Timur_Sharapudinov , I’ve been testing the new layout for a month now. Like all changes, it does take some time getting used to, but I find that it’s actually quite intuitive. The ‘Projects’ section is actually an auto-populating ‘Recent Projects’ list (which I have sent the relevant feedback to have it renamed as such, so it’s clearer) which is very useful.
As for the ‘Teams’, I actually don’t mind not being able to expand each team because I always have them collapsed (to avoid lots of scrolling) but I do miss being able to sort projects within the Navigation bar. However, referring to your issue that you mention above, you can still sort your projects within the Team’s page so you can organize them as you wish.
Just adding my feedback here that I also DO NOT LIKE the new side bar organization in the A/B test. Please give us back the old version!! I want the layout to go back to organizing projects under teams. It’s so much easier for my brain and for managing the work of multiple teams.
I understand that I can view each team’s projects by clicking on the team but I don’t want to have to click one more time or direct other people to click one more time into their team to view their projects. It’s much easier for people to be able to move their own teams to the top of their side bar and therefore have direct access to each project with just one click. Making users click into their team is just one more step and is not as intuitive. It makes my job of on-boarding a new organization into Asana that much harder, especially when the people I’m working with are not super tech-savvy.
The sidebar update is absolutely terrible for me. Did Asana’s innovation team need to show activity and so randomly came up with this “improvement”? I see a lot of similar responses in this thread that are critical of the new sidebar solution. Our team was on the verge of deciding to invest in a paid Workspace. Unfortunately, we will probably have to look for an alternative. Asana will become unusable for us with this update.
