Introducing new access level in projects - “Editor”

Hi everyone, thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us. I wanted to clarify some details about this update and how project permissions were migrated:

  • If you were a member with edit access to the project, you should now have Project Admin rights and should be able to edit the project as usual.

  • If you were a Project member but didn’t have full access to the team the project was part of, after this rollout you were made Project Editor and have limited access now.

As @Richard_Sather mentioned in the comment above, to gain the level of access you had before, Project Admins can update the default access level of the project to “Project Admin”. This will give anyone the ability to take admin-level actions on the project.

  • If there aren’t any project admins on a project, there’s an in-product flow that lets any editor become the first project admin. That new admin can designate other users as admins as well.

  • Alternatively, you can reach out to our support team to be upgraded to Project Admin.

  • We are planning to implement the capability to make this update via the Asana API in the near future as well.

I hope this clarifies some of the confusion around how permissions were set after this roll out. We will continue monitoring feedback and sending your suggestions to our Product Team for consideration in the future!
