Put projects in folders


Is it possible to “folderize” the projects section, or/and the favorites section?


Nope. The structure above projects is Teams, so maybe you can use Teams as a “folder”…

Hey Rashad Issa,
Please see answer in your e-mail



An idea to “folderize” a bit the projects into a team could be to create “false” projects with names like "---- Type A of projects —, “----Type B of projects—” …
I use that, it is not ideal but it works. Those “false” projects do not have any tasks, they just create some kind of sections in the left pane. With signs like ----- or ***** or >>>>> you can make them more visible.


How to create categories!

Is there a way to see a sum of all projects for a team?


I use this exact method that Julien describes and it works very well. If there are no tasks in your false projects (as there shouldn’t be), they will not clutter up any searches or sorts. Also, remember you can reorder projects in the left pane by dragging, even though the UI doesn’t really indicate that. So once you’ve created your section headers, you can arrange everything how you want it.


Hello Brian,

The left pane is a bit cumbersome to see all the projects, is there no nice summary page of all the projects (listed or otherwise, like the nice way tasks are seen)?


Hi @Dan_peled,
please se the post, and vote, i think it is somewhat, what you are looking for.



You were very clear and precise.
I do not understand how the ASANA team are working without this management feature-
It seems quite trivial to do in the basics of the design of the interface.

Actually this feature is what makes my company think twice if we will upgrade the account…

As I understand they did not pick up the glove… Any news you know on updates?



Hi @Dan_peled, we are in the exact same situation as you.

It bothers us because we had no choice but to use the Projects level as a way to group our projects which are created in Tasks. And because of that, we can’t use the “custom project” feature that we were hoping to use heavily because it only works on Projet, not Tasks.

@Dan_peled since october 2017, what did your company decide?
