Asana links opening in browser not Desktop App (Mac)

Continuing the discussion from Task Links Opening in browser not Desktop App:

FYI for anyone having an issue with asana links not opening in the desktop app when clicked from slack or email - mine has been broken for AGES, like, almost a year.

Finally after many many attempts to change a multitude of settings in slack/asana/chrome/mac, forum deep dives and two chat help sessions, this worked: *

“Would you kindly log out of the Asana desktop application and re-login? It should forward you to log in through the browser, then Chrome should have a pop up for you to check a box to allow chrome to open links in the app. Once you have been logged in, would click on an email link to see if it will prompt you to open it within the Asana desktop ?”

** NOTE I also logged out of my browser too, to ensure it would prompt the login properly & I’m on a mac, using chrome.

This fixed my issue for links clicked from slack or email, both were opening in browser.


Thank you so much. So easy once you know! Loggin out and in again in the mac desktop app totally did the trick for me.
