Moving Projects Between Workspaces/Organizations


#1

I’m new to Asana and I’ve just realized that the Company Workspace seems to offer more features than my Personal Workspace. I really like how you can drag and drop the projects to reorder them in the Company Workspace.

If I only plan to use Asana for my personal use, is it possible to transfer my projects from my Personal Workspace over to my Company Workspace?


Can you move a project from one workspace to another?
Is it possible to move tasks between workspaces?
Can I copy a project from one company to another company?

yep. On the project, click the down arrow beside the name and click “Move to another team”

He means between workspaces/organizations. The answer, @Hasani_Thomas, is not natively in Asana - at least not when I asked early last year.

However I believe there are third-party programs that can do this, I can’t remember the name off the top of my head though.

For some reason I’m not seeing that “Move to another team” option when I click on that down arrow for my projects in either of my workspaces (Company or Personal) Cindy.

I don’t really understand why.

But I went ahead and manually copied and pasted all of my tasks over.
Thank you for your assistance though.

Thank you Caisha. Yeah I don’t think they’ve made workspace task transfers possible yet.


#6

You’re welcome! I’ll try to dig up the name of the third party tool (it was recommended by Asana support ages ago - they don’t support it, but I never had any problems with it.


#7

Found it referenced randomly in another thread - https://asana.kothar.net/

I used this when we were moving between organizations and had very little problems in the transfer =)


#8

Thank you @Caisha! This might come in handy down the road! :slight_smile:


#9

Thanks! I was looking for this feature as well! I hope that Asana will make this possible in the future.


#10

This workaround works brilliantly! Thanks!


#11

This utility works very well to transfer between organizations/workspaces, but note that it only moves projects. I had all my personal tasks in My Tasks inside the Personal Projects workspace, and I wanted to move them to a new personal workspace. I had to put all the tasks in a project first, and then move the project to the new workspace.


#12

Works Great ! Thanks.


#13

I’ve tried using the link above and works for projects that are in the list format but not for boards. Has anyone else experienced that or found a workaround?


#14

The tool has been created long time before the existence of Boards in Asana, I guess the tool needs to be updated.
Has anyone communicated this to the programmer of the tool?
I have not found another tool so far.

Best,
Sebastian

Thanks for the help, guys!

You can also highlight all tasks in a project, right-click and copy.
Then switch to the new workspace and open a project.
Click into the task field and right-click Paste.
This will copy over all tasks.

If you copy completed tasks, these will become active tasks when you paste.


#17

It would be good to have the option to move projects to another workspace, hope it will become available soon.


#18

@PC1 I encourage you to vote on this request in the product feedback category here: Viewing all assigned tasks across multiple workspaces


#19

The tool has been updated and can now process board-style projects as well. Works perfectly!

That is AWESOME news! Thanks for the update.
