Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing: If you are working in an intermittently offline environment - and then Asana times out your session you lose work.
Steps to reproduce:
Its hard to define exact steps, but i believe the following should work …
- Login to Asana
- Turn off WiFi
- Make a bunch of changes on Asana, add some topics, rearrange some things, edit some text
- Close laptop,
- Come back tomorrow - open laptop, get the unhelpful message.
“To keep your work secure, your Asana session has timed out. To log back in, please refresh your browser, or hit Log In below.If you were in the middle of typing something, please close this message, copy the text, and then refresh. We apologize for interrupting your flow. Thanks for helping us keep Asana secure!”
Spend a while trying to remember all the changes you made, there is no “text” to copy, since what you were doing was all the usual Asana stuff of moving things around etc.
Log back in, give up and hope Asana didn’t unnecessarily lose anything important again.
What it ideally should do … put up a message. “We’ve timed out your session for security, don’t worry we havent lost anything, log back in and we’ll upload your changes”. Request a login, NOT require a screen refresh and then automatically upload all the offline changes.
