Hi anything new or changed on the “Freshdesk + Asana integration”? I’ve been using it since last year. Works well (except if you initiate a new ticket from Freshdesk to Asana, it will create 2 tickets in Asana).

@Mike_Castoro, I’ll have an update in #news:product-updates later this week, stay tuned!

I had my project list organized a specific way, and now it seems the drag/drop option to move the list around doesn’t work and the only way to organize the project list is via the ‘top projects’ and ‘recent projects’…which completely rearranged the way I work.
Am I missing something or is there a way to re-organize the list of projects how it used to be instead of this forced organizing method?

Hi @Marc_Verbenkov , welcome to the forum :wave:

The Projects section in the sidebar is actually new. I think what you are referring to was your Favorites section (now renamed to Starred) in which you can rearrange your projects list as you did.

You can read more about the changes to the sidebar in this post:
