Hi! Congrats on the latest additions on attachments. I was hoping this time around I would find it, but maybe nobody suggested it yet!
So I’ll suggest: when I upload an attachment I would love to be able to change its name.
Most often happens to me with images, that I upload with auto-generated meaningless names like “Screenshot xxxx.png” but when editing the task description or comment I would love to inline the image (I know this can be more complicated) or maybe have the option to name the picture like “This is how to reproduce the error” or “I would like something like this” would help a lot the narrative. I often end up downloading the image, renaming it and uploading it again, or saying something like “the first image”, “the second image”, way less effective,
For our R&D and design projects, all our tasks contain images, pasted mostly from the clipboard.
Infortunately, all images in a project have the same name: image.png. This makes it very hard to refer or to find images, and I cannot find an option to rename these.
How to rename pasted images please. If this option does not exist, can it be added. That would be such a great option. Thanks, Gerard
In a Japanese thread 添付データ名称の文字数制限を緩和してほしい (Request to allow longer attachment names), I learned that the attachment name limit is 260 characters (or less when we use Japanese full-width characters).
If the attachment exceeds the limit, we can still upload it, but we can’t view or download the file.
Of course, the ideal scenario would be that attachments with longer names can be used in the future, but I found this feature request and upvoted it because it can be a quicker workaround for non-viewable and non-downloadable attachmets.
Update Dec 1, 2022: I heard that the “not downloadable” issue was an error and was fixed. It’d be still helpful to have the ability to rename attachments though.
Asana has been a great tool for me to organize files and attachments, but I have noticed that once they are uploaded there is not an option to rename them. I have to manually download the attachment, rename it on my desktop, and re-upload it to Asana. I would like to see a rename button added as a feature in the future.
