Switching organizations... help?

Good morning, a friend of mine who loves Asana set me up under her organization and I got started there before I knew how to use Asana. Now that I have invested this time and effort… I don’t want to be part of her organization and want to switch to my own. Strange question I’m sure… but does anyone know how to make this happen? I can’t get a response from the Support Center.

You were a guest with his organization? Do you have a website on your own? (like gabriel@horn.com)? If you do you can signup for Asana and you’ll have a brand new org. Then you can use https://asana.kothar.net/ to migrate things over.

Hi @Gabriel_Horn and welcome to the Forum! :grinning:

@Bastien_Siebman gave you a great suggestion.

If you have a company or work email address you can create your own Organization following these steps: https://asana.com/guide/help/organizations/create

After creating the Organization, you can migrate things from your friend’s Organization to yours, using https://asana.kothar.net/. Please, see below what this tool will carry over and what will not.

What carries over:

  • Project name
  • Tasks
  • Subtasks
  • Sections
  • Due Dates
  • Assignees (if they are also Members of the destination space)
  • Tags
  • Task activity & Comments
  • Task attachments
  • Boards layout
  • Custom Fields

What does NOT carry over:

  • Project privacy settings
  • Project status
  • Conversations
  • Conversation attachments
  • Assignees (if they are not Members of the destination space)

PS: After migrating things over, you will need to delete them from your friend’s organization as they will still remain there.

I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, let me know. I will be more than happy to help you!
