thank you for the Desktop app, it’s great. But it does not remember the size and place on the desktop. It’s really annoying. Is there any way how to fix it?
Hi @Tomáš_Jelínek, welcome to the Asana Community Forum
Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback We will relay this to our Product team - hopefully they can make some changes in the future I’ll let you know if I have any updates!
+1: Yes, this is mildly annoying. I’ve used Asana as a ‘desktop app’ in several ways now via various ‘website as an app’ methods. All of those have at least allowed for desktop window size and position to be saved. I saw a post that indicated that Asana Dev had intentionally developed the app to not remember size and position on the desktop? If that is true, who does that? What kind of user benefit is that? I ‘hope’ this is not like Asana Dev’s choice to screw up all of the colors for everyone in the name of accessibility that was completely unnecessary? We’re still living with that…
I was very excited when Asana released its macOS app – I love having it separate from my browser. But every time I launch it, it takes up my entire screen, which is irritating.
With no option to turn off this “feature,” it is another example of Asana’s arrogant approach to user experience design: Our app deserves all of your screen’s real estate. And if you’re not using it the way we want you to use it, you’re doing it wrong.
Another example of the company’s attitude: There’s still no way to have Asana automatically assign all new tasks to yourself.
Getting the app to your preferred size is an unnecessarily confusing, multi-step process. When you launch the app, it looks like it opens in full-screen. But it is not, which makes this non-optional “feature” even more exasperating.
If the app were in full-screen mode, you could hit the tiny green dot in the upper left corner and it would exit full-screen mode. That should return the app to your preferred size.
But since the app is not actually in full-screen mode, pushing the green button puts the app in true full-screen mode. To finally get it to your preferred size, you have to go back to the original screen mode and manually drag the app to the size you want on your screen.
I’ve been with Asana for years, but the company’s persistent lack of respect for its users – its attitude that you must use the product exactly the way you want them to use it – has led me to create my next task in Asana: Find a new productivity app.
Hi @helloandyhihi, while this feature isn’t available at this time, hopefully it’s something our Product team can implement in the future
We do have an existing thread for this feature request in the #productfeedback category so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with the existing one to consolidate feedback.
I’ll keep you posted and let you know if I have any updates
