HI @lpb and thanks for reporting this issue. I can’t seem to be able to reproduce the issue you’re describing; are you able to reproduce with a private window and another browser?

Looking forward to your reply :slight_smile:

Hi @Marie, I just sent a PM with a screencast. That’s showing Firefox reproducing the problem, and I forgot to report the same thing happens in a Chrome Incognito window (as well as Chrome regular and Firefox). I might not have explained it well so I hope the screencast helps.

Please advice.

Welcome to the Forum @Caspar and thank you so much for taking time to report this!

I just tried to reproduce this on my end and I had the same result as you so I’ve gone ahead and filed a task with our Development Team. I’ll make sure to keep you posted as soon as I have an update on this topic!

Have a great Friday!

Thank you Natalia.
Asana is doing outstanding work and has a fantastic service as well as community management.
Looking forward,

@Caspar and @Natalia,

I reported this a few months ago but it didn’t get followed up, it seems. However, note in my post that you can Ctrl-Click that link to open in a new window and that does go to the Progress tab:


Thank you very much @lpb for stepping in letting us know! I have missed the bug filed by Marie :see_no_evil:.

I’ve gone ahead and merge both threads so I can update here as soon as I have more information regarding this.

In the meantime @Caspar, as Larry reported, you can Ctrl-Click the link to open in a new window and it will redirect you to the Progress tab.

Have you two a great Friday!
