But I can’t seem to figure out how on earth I can do this in my own boards. I’ve tried adding an img link in the card title and description: it just showed the url and not the image itself. Also tried dragging an image to a card, but it didn’t work either. I’ve been googling this (and searching here) for about a week and haven’t found anything about how to do this.
So, my question is: how can I accomplish this in my boards?
And ofcourse I just managed to add a picture as a featured image on a card haha
In case someone stumbles upon this topic because they didn’t manage to accomplish this: I opened the task and dragged an image from a Finder folder to the task. You get a big ‘upload file’ field. Drop the file and it starts saving the image.
At first it didn’t seem to work, so I removed the file again. Then tried to drop it into the ‘title’ field, got the same upload box, dropped it again, it started saving. I could see in the background the cards height were changed (movement), so I closed the task and saw that it now did have the chosen image as featured on the card.
We recently moved from Trello to Asana and I’m loving A LOT about Asana. But I have to agree with @pkoutsod on this one. I’m really missing my clean looking Trello board which allowed me to upload as many images to a card as I wanted, and indicate that I didn’t want a featured image to show on the board view. @Alexis Any update on moving to this type of behavior?
So basically you, when in the boards view(not inside a task) click on the “…” (three dots) that show up when you hover over the card you want to remove or reselect featured image and choose what suits you.
Awesome I appreciate that. I’d call that functional BUT that is not great user interface. First it assumes that the user will look for that outside of the of the task. And then it relies on the user naming images correctly - of course I’d advice that but sometime we have 100 images in a task.
Would having three dots next to the image you want to set reallllllllly be so bad. It just seems like Asana is not doing it because there is some design boss on the inside who thinks its a bad idea for some reason. It’s not a bad idea. It’s an awesome idea and that design person calling the shots is wrong… said with love
