"Direct embedding" in tasks, the complete list

Hi all :wave:

I’m on a mission to catalog every format that can be seamlessly embedded into Asana tasks (and project brief) without the need for integration. I mean, drop a link, and like magic, Asana instantly displays the file right inside the task. Since I couldn’t find a comprehensive source, I’ve decided to build one. :wink:

Hi @Marie :wave:
I’m never sure where to put such articles. Forum leaders only? Or other categories?
Thanks :wink:

@Arthur_BEGOU great initiative!

Your post is currently hidden in a private category, the Forum Leader Tips for me is the right category.


Thanks for creating this tip, @Arthur_BEGOU! As Bastien said, the Forum Leaders tips category is the right place to publish all your tips! :slight_smile:

How about Canva? Anyone else use that?

For me, it does create a direct embed but it never “works”, it always shows a Forbidden (403) Canva page as the embed.

Hi @Dyani and thanks for pointing that out; and indeed, I have the same issue, even with public links

Wow, this is clear! Thank you for putting this know-how together @Arthur_BEGOU :clap:

Ok so it’s not just something weird on my end then! That’s exactly what happens for me no matter what permissions I put on the link.
