Hi @Arthur_Campanha, thanks for reaching out! You must zoom into the Hour view to view Start time on Timeline. Have you done this? :slight_smile:

Hello @Rebecca_McGrath, thank you for clarifying that. I hadn’t done that. I thought it would be shown regardless of the zoom option.
Thank you

Hi @Ben_Morton, we don’t have any updates on this right now but be sure to upvote this request so our Product team can get an understanding of how popular this would be: Video messaging in Desktop app

I have a question about the vimeo video feature. I already made a few tests and created a vimeo account and linked that in the Asana interface. But I wonder where I can delete a video? In my vimeo account these videos are not listed.
I am also quite worried that the link works for everyone on the internet, even without vimeo account and outside of our workspace. This is not really secure.

Hello @Martin_Brandenburg,
you should definitely be able to see the videos in your account. Have a look here to see if that helps: Storage of recorded video on Vimeo - #5 by Andrea_Mayer

In terms of vimeo video privacy settings take a look here: Video privacy, explained (and how to tweak settings in Vimeo) - Vimeo blog

I shared this with my team, we’re all so very excited for the Video messaging feature and have already tested it out! We were surprised it wasn’t available on the desktop app though, will that be updated soon?
