Is it possible to attach a Google Drive folder?

Sometimes, we need to attach dozens of files for a task (for things like product certification or tasks that need to fill out a bunch of forms). The problem is, people need to be able to 1) download them all at once and 2) open individual files. Right now, the assignee uploads a zip file that contains all the documents; when we need to read an individual file, we need to download, unzip, and open the file.

Being able to attach a folder would be an ideal solution that covers both problems.

We just put the URL to the folder in the task description field.

Aaaah, that makes sense… /facepalm

Asana needs to integrate google drive better so that You can share a google drive folder. Not limit it to just sharing Documents. It would be a better approach than finding creating a link, sharing the link, and posting it to asana.

Please add my vote for the ability to share by folder instead of or in addition to sharing individual files.

Don’t know when the feature was added, but I can attach folders now.

When adding an attachment using the “Attach a File” > “Google Drive” menu, you can double-click on a folder to dive deeper, or select the folder and click “Select” on the lower left corner to attach the whole folder.
