It’s a by product of the fact that Asana doesn’t seem to cache the list of projects. It always gets them remotely. There is a delay, even on fast internet connections.
If I’m too fast and I want to add something to “work priorities” I’ll type wo enter, and then find that the list hasn’t loaded fast enough and its either tagged it to something completely different, or its created a new project called “wo”, that I then have to remove the tag and go in and delete the new project.
It would be best if the project list was cached and no delay, but alternatively I just don’t want to create new projects from that autocomplete dialog.
