We’ve profiled Asana on Lifehack before (it’s my task manager of choice and I have given it the “30 Days With…” treatment), and its versatility and ubiquity is one of its strengths. So was the barrier to entry in terms of price point, because for teams of 30 or less individuals it is free.
Well, today Asana has introduced Asana Premium Workspaces, which allows for larger teams to use Asana to efficiently and effectively manage their tasks — and their teams. Here’s what Asana Premium Workspaces offers its users:
More Workspace Members
By upgrading to a higher tier of members, starting at just $300/month you can add up to 50 teammates. Tiers of larger teams (75, 100, or more members) are also available.
You can share private Projects with a small group within your Workspace, so exactly the right people see the Projects they should see. This is a huge bonus in that you can really get as granular as you want within a Workspace and not overwhelm your team as a whole by subjecting them to Project updates that they don’t really need.
Any questions and issues from customers in Premium Workspaces go to the front of the line for response from Asana’s support team, which is a great resource to have at your disposal since Asana is still relatively new — and not necessarily intuitive for those who haven’t used a task management app before.
For teams that don’t need to go past the threshold of 30, they can also upgrade to a Premium Workspace to enjoy the benefits of Project-level Permissions and Priority Support for just $100/month.
Asana has seen amazing success since its launch almost 6 months ago, with 10 million Tasks created in Asana and 4 million of them seen through to completion. Better still, Asana has experienced a 75% retention rate, meaning that those using Asana haven’t switched to another task manager in the process. They’re sticking with Asana — which is a pretty incredible accomplishment considering the sheer amount of productivity-type applications (both web-based and native) that are available in the marketplace.
We’ve been using Asana here at Lifehack for the past couple of months, and we’re excited to see where it’s going. Adding Premium Workspaces is just one of the many additions we hope to see in the coming months from this team task management app.
