We have 5 users on PAID Premium and we too have this obnoxious Upgrade button distracting us all day everyday. The button does not go away and has been there for months now.
We have contacted support and usual response in that it can’t be turned off and our feedback will be passed on… (to where actually I wonder…). I used to recommend Asana to others and I know we’ve been responsible for multiple teams signing up over the past couple of years.
This is not how you treat paying customers - ie. “thanks for the money, but now we’re going to continually bug you for more as the product we sold you isn’t good enough…”.
This really irks me - unfortunately enough to start considering switching elsewhere.
Please listen to your users and paying customers on this.
