Re: A non-domain Organization member's ability to edit custom fields

It is my understanding that only organizational members can add custom fields. If this is true and organizational members have to have the same domain is there a way to make an email that is not the organizations domain a member for full rights in regards to custom fields.

Hey @James_Carl

You’re correct, only full members are able to apply/edit/remove custom fields of a project.

Guests who have access to the Tasks within a Project, on the other hand, have the ability to apply the custom fields that have already been selected by a full member to appear on the Task within that project.

If you wished to give a Guest the rights of a full member, they must be given an email address registered at the domain tied to the Organization, which then needs to be added to their Asana account by following the instructions available here.

Hope this clarifies things a bit!

Has this changed at all since this post in 2017 or do I still need to provision an email address from my subscription domain to allow/pay for a guest to manage their own Custom Fields, etc?

Hey @Ralph_Carlone
you need to be at least premium user to be able to edit custom field settings.
So if you need somebody to edit the fields and add new ones they would need a company domain email address.

Once the fields are added guest users can use them though (enter data, select option from the drop down etc)

Got it, thank you! I’ll figure out how to provision an internal email address for my user.
