I just converted our workspace into an organization in hopes of using some team features and making integrations more seamless. I had no idea certain things would happen without warning and now I’m stuck in support purgatory waiting for help.
So this post is a warning about converting and also a request for help from anyone that has a similar situation. Hopefully it helps if you’re considering the switch.
When I converted my premium workspace I assumed it would be converted into a premium organization. However, it converted to the free plan (I just paid my premium bill 2 days ago). As soon as I went to customize the org settings, I was prompted to upgrade in order to do anything (literally, every setting requires a premium plan).
I went to upgrade to a premium plan in hopes that my account would just be credited but Asana recognizes 9 emails connected to my domain so it wants to force me to upgrade to 10 seats when I only need 4. Like most businesses, we have several email addresses that are not actual people in our company.
I start searching articles and threads and even reach out to sales support via chat. I discovered that you can upgrade only a team to premium so I tried that. I pay the upgrade fee and despite the upgrade, I still have no access to organization settings.
I’m extremely hesitant to upgrade the whole org in hopes of a refund after reading other threads. I carved out an evening and stayed at the office instead of going home to my family to accomplish this mission and now I’m handcuffed until I hear from support.
I’ve emailed Asana Support. There is no auto reply to let you know they’ve received your request or anything. The icing on the cake is Asana prioritizes support for premium accounts which I used to have and now don’t.
I’m really bummed at the experience but hope to stick with it and hope the service team is able to transition my account and process a refund without a fight.
