I totally and wholeheartedly agree with this statement on the Asana Help Guide
One of the major “a-ha!” moments in Asana is when customers realize they can connect their work across Asana and see it in different places—without duplicating anything or losing context. This saves time so teammates don’t have to search for what they need, or re-create work that is being tracked elsewhere.
Unfortunately, at least for my team here in North Florida, the delays on these mentions are really long. The minimum for us seems to be around 2 seconds for simple teammate mentions @Mike_ @Brian_ ect… and on the project mentions, like you will see in the embedded video, it can be over 6 seconds before it pulls back the link, allowing you to complete you thought or comment.
These delays are on the top of the list of why we may not switch from another plateform, despite all the benefits we are finding and enjoy on Asana. If they were fixed I think we could live with the few other issues we are having with a possible transition.
[engineerspeak] I’m sure if Asana engineering had more detailed feedback it would expedite a fix either in software via front end caching or on the back end with more servers distributed throughout the USA which would reduce the round trip and any specific server loads.[/engineerspeak]
I think it would really help if you or your team is experiencing the same or similar delays for mentions. If so please Heart this post and leave a reply with your general location and brief description of the delays.
