Welcome to the Forum @Karen_Dauncey and thank you for sharing your feedback with us!
Currently our pricing plans works in bundles; we’ve opted for this structure to allow teams using Asana to grow while not constantly run into their plans limit. With that said, we often re-evaluate our pricing plan and may be able to accommodate more teams structure in the future, so I would recommend to keep an eye out.
Thank you again for your feedback. Have a great Friday!
Yes, I’m with ya. I only need 1 seat, but would be forced to pay for a 2nd in order to get the features that come with the upgrade. I’m a one-woman show, and don’t even have a VA, and as a solopreneur I cannot afford to pay for an extra seat I literally CANNOT use. I’d be happy to pay for an upgrade IF it allowed me to choose the exact number of seats I needed, and not be forced into groups which pays for seats I won’t use.
Asana please allow us to pay for a single user on Premium. I work alone and have no plans for adding a team member anytime soon. I’d love to pay for the premium features for myself but paying for a seat that doesn’t get used makes no sense.
I migrated to ClickUp 2.0 and it has WAY more features than Asana and allows single seat licenses for premium and it’s way cheaper. The ONLY thing keeping me from it is the UI. Sooo many clicks to constantly open things up that are default to stay compressed every time you navigate away from and back to them. You can’t keep them open. And the Gantt view is horrible to use. The views are terrible and inflexible. Hoping they fix some of the UI issues because when they do I am leaving Asana, which is sad because I have been a heavy user since they started. I even consulted with fortune 100 companies teaching how to work differently in tools like this. Super sad they don’t care about the sole proprietors who would want to pay them $.
Or maybe not - maybe they should be given a raise. You’re not considering the possibility that they’re doing an excellent job of executing on a strategic business plan to focus on larger organizational customers.
I’m not saying this is definitely the case; I don’t work for Asana and don’t have any inside info. My point is that many people here think the Asana team is comprised of idiots for ignoring solo entrepreneurs and don’t stop to consider that may be part of an intentional, strategic plan, which IMO they have every right to do if they choose to. And it’s definitely not unethical IMO. Is it unethical for Lexus to charge $60K for a car? No, because they’ve made a strategic decision as to what target market segment they are focusing on.
First of all, thank you to everyone involved here for taking the time to share your feedback with us. Most importantly, thanks for your patience, as I know this has been a long-standing request among our Community and customers.
I think this will answer a lot of requests I’ve seen on this thread but I’m conscious that some of you were requesting a single user pricing and I wanted to provide you with an update on this question too. As you know, Asana was built to help humanity thrive by enabling the world’s teams to work together effortlessly. Our features and pricing structure have been designed with that in mind. As a result, our new plans will start at 2 seats, and at the moment, we are not exploring options to launch a plan for 1 user. I’m closing this thread out for now, but if the situation evolves over time, I will make sure to re-open and keep you posted here!
I just wanted to draw attention to the fact that there seem to be many users (at least according to what I’ve found in the Community Forum) that would love to be able to get Premium for single users. Myself included.
Since all the topics related to this idea have been closed, I apologize for having to post about this again. (I’d vote otherwise).
Asana - please consider making a single-user Premium subscription available!
Yes it does not exist indeed. There is an existing topic Please make a Premium Solo Plan with a lot of votes. It was closed because Asana knows there is a huge demand, they just decided not to do anything yet.
Before this gets merged with another similar topic and closed because single users are probably not in Asana’s best interest, I’d just like to say I love asana, but I can’t achieve what I am looking for from the app without having to pay for 2 seats.
The decision may look good on paper, but just know that its a really bad experience for the little guys.
