Hi @Emily_Roman,
Thanks for the update, I’ve literally been waiting for this Asana smart chips to roll out since the announcement last year. Question though… the help article reads

Using Google smart chips, teams can @-mention Asana tasks directly into a Google Doc to surface relevant data from Asana and maintain visibility on workflow progress.

However, I’m only able to surface the chip when i paste a link from asana into a Google Doc. I was hoping that by enabling asana from within my Google workspace i could in fact @-mention and get a prompt to select an asana task to attach. Is that functionality pending or no? Is it possible this a user-error issue I’m facing?

I had the release pushed to my app this morning and it’s messed up the layout badly putting the background picture on top so I can’t really see the text. The browser version works fine. Has anyone else experienced anything similar? Taking away the background doesn’t help as it gets stuck saying it’s syncing.
