I echo everyone above: The need to auto-expand comments — for the entire thread and for long comments — is so necessary. Finding a colleague’s remarks about a task becomes a herculean effort when there are more than a few comments on a thread. Team Asana: You’ve got to work on this; it’s such an easy fix.
In the meantime, have any users tried the Auto Clicker extension for Chrome?
I installed the extension, and while it looks like it can work for our mutual need to auto-expand comments, it’s a little too technical for me to understand. But if I’m understanding correctly, the extension can be used to auto-click on any element on a page.
In a long thread with lots of comments, the “25 more comments” is inside the element
<a class="TaskStoryFeed-expandLink">25 more comments</a>. With the Auto Clicker extension, you could define that class to be auto-clicked.
For a single comment that’s too long for Asana to display, and thus creates a “See More” link, the “See More” text is inside this element:
<a class="TruncatedRichText-expand">See More</a>
If anyone how more technical prowess than I and knows how to create the settings for the extension, please chime in here because we could all benefit!
The settings of the Chrome extension look like this:
