I’m Arthur from the Forum Leader team, and I’m excited to share that bundles will begin rolling out to Enterprise customers starting today
We know that keeping processes consistent and scalable across many different teams can be challenging. This is where bundles can certainly benefit your operations!
Bundles will enable you to quickly apply a combination of rules, fields, and task templates across your projects - in only a few clicks. This will allow you to drive consistency in processes, outcomes, as well as reporting. With bundles, you’ll also be able to push out updates to multiple projects that are in-flight, at once. Being consistent and flexible in processes is now fast, easy, and delightful.
We’re also a little confused about recent features (universal workload) being Enterprise only. The rest of the Enterprise feature set is very clearly aimed at very large organizations: special security, data control, additional layers of management, special IT backend tools for customization.
Bundles and Universal Workload are both solutions to longstanding issues with Asana. For our very small team of 10, we set up a project per client (about 200 per year). If we come up with a new task process or rule, we have to go in and manually update all 200 projects. Bundles finally solves that problem.
It’d seem to me that most of your users would benefit from things like Bundles, or the ability to see their team’s real workload with Universal Workload. Does Asana think only very large Enterprises would benefit from those features?
We make use of Asana heavily and we’re a small team, but we happily pay for the platform and while larger teams require enterprise support, these features should be core and at least available to premium plans.
We’ve more exciting updates coming very soon, including Forumlas for Business users (if you don’t want to miss them, make sure to follow our news category). And while we plan to continue developing Enterprise-exclusive features to respond to specific needs and expectations from Enterprise customers, we also plan to continue to support other Asana users!
Thanks, Marie! We so appreciate all the big changes and improvements that Asana has created over just the last year. Asana is really growing into a very powerful tool. I’m not sure how many others feel this way, but we’d quite happily pay more for a “Business Premium” plan or similar. No doubt all that dev time for Bundles and Universal Workload needs to be paid for.
Previously Enterprise was clearly targeted at Enterprises. Big security and ID and customization features that large companies need. Last week we reached out to Asana Sales to see we could do an Enterprise plan for a tiny team of 10, but we haven’t heard back – we’re probably too small for Enterprise. But if there are major features like Bundles and Workload that would really benefit the team, happy to pay for them…
I so agree with you Tanner and lilrkt - and Bastien, please reread the arguments, they really make sense.
If you want to provide value to Enterprise tiers you shouldn’t do this with features that should be an integral part of your product. Just like Tanner I had to update manually over 100 projects, in my case to add the Asana Actual Time feature (wow released in 2023 - that was fast!) . It’s baffling really. Perhaps Asana doesn’t know their customers that well? I don’t need a custom enterprise solution. I need task management that saves time for my organisation and frankly updating 100+ projects with a new feature isn’t very satisfying.
