Stop non-team members' names from popping up in comments and messages

We are a smallish unit within a much larger organization. Many of our projects are highly confidential. Unfortunately, when we try to @mention a team member, Asana begins to offer us the choice of any non-team member who has the same first few letters in their @mention identifier. This poses a real security risk. How can we stop it?


You currently can’t that’s the way the tool always has been, it aligns with Asana’s vision of open collaboration…

One would think that there would also be a confidentiality function… Why not an open collaboration default and an option for confidentiality configurations? Or, at a minimum, a pop-up inquiry (ie “This person is not on your team. Do you still want to @ them?”)

Hi @Pamela_Metzger
This matter is very important.
(I can’t find it right away, but it’s an issue that has been discussed on the forums for quite some time.)
I also strongly hope for a response, so I will vote for it.

P.S. Is this it?

Because I believe it could conflict with the “no silos” philosophy Asana has and annoy you with popup often? Just trying to guess

Recently, I have found myself desiring to avoid this once more.

Primarily, perhaps it would be advantageous to have the option to choose “do not display.”
