Making templates available to all teams


#1

Hi Team,

Is it possible to make templates available to all team in Asana without the template actually being part of a specific team?

Regards, David.

Hi David

Templates are really just normal projects that happen to have been assigned as templates, so they have to sit in a specific team.

It’s possible to make templates available to all members of an organisation, but you’d need to have a Premium subscription for the whole organisation, as opposed to individual teams. If you did, you could then create a team titled ‘Templates’, and store them in there.

For now, we keep all of our templates at the bottom of the sidebar, with an empty project titled ‘Templates - DO NOT ALTER’ serving as a header. However, I do agree that template projects should really exist behind the scenes, rather than as visible projects in the sidebar.

Mark

Hi Mark,

Thank you for your reply.

This is how we currently have our templates set up as well. However, DO NOT ALTER can sometimes mean “Edit as you see fit” :joy:

It would be nice to have the ability to lock them if not have them hidden.

I feel your pain. I keep private back-up copies of all of our templates just in case someone doesn’t follow the simple, step-by-step instructions I’ve sent round about 5 times!

Read-only would be a great feature.

A copy seems a good idea, and make sure to be a follower of the original project so you get notified of any change in it to rollback!
