I am new to Asana. But from all of the research I have done, I am excited about starting to use it. However the only thing missing for me, is the ability to work offline. (Native Windows App) Is there any plan for this as a possibility, and if so, when will it be available?
Hi @Ramona_Woitas. Our Android and iOS apps already allow you to work offline (https://asana.com/guide/help/ios/basics and https://asana.com/guide/help/android/basics. However, I’m afraid that we don’t offer an application for Windows yet, apologies for the inconvenience!
I’d like to +1 this on the asana product cycle. The use case for offline changes on Windows is growing, as the ecosystem for the Surface-tablets and notebooks (and equivalents) is growing, which is trending into the IOS device sales. Unlike Apple, where the ecosystems are different between their mobile devices and computers, MS has decided to make it one platform. Since Android/Chromebooks aren’t useful for many of us, and IOS devices simply don’t have enough horsepower for many applications, many of us are using Windows portables. Evernote and other companies have studied this for awhile, which is why the client software is a necessity in the coming 5 years.
Agree this should be a top priority. Trello now has an offline desktop app, and though I’m familiar with and would love to use Asana, the fact that our team travels a lot means that I’m leaning toward switching us all to Trello. Could we get an update on whether a desktop app is in the works?
Thanks for the follow-up @Kathleen_Jean-Pierre! Unfortunately, I don’t have any update to share at the moment, and I don’t believe this is in our plans for the near future. With that said, I’ll make sure to update this thread as soon as I hear anything regarding a potential Windows app.
All the best,
