Hi @Nick_Morrill and thanks for reaching out.

I’m running the same version of Chrome than you and can’t seem to be able to reproduce the issue. this is usually an issue directly related to the browser, so I’ve recommended following the steps in this guide to troubleshoot the issue: Supported browsers and troubleshooting steps | Product guide • Asana

Hope this helps, but let me know if you have any follow-up questions!

Anyone else running into this?
We have a handful of users reporting mostly when browser is full screen 1920x1080

Hi @Michael_B and thanks for the report. Have you tried these troubleshooting steps? Supported browsers and troubleshooting steps | Product guide • Asana

We received another report in the Forum, so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with this existing thread in the Forum. If you continue running into trouble please let me know!

Yes. My guess is that you have some sort of loop in the code not friendly with Chrome 67. We have the same issue Nick reports above. Type is slow to enter. Maybe something to to with how you save what we type live back to the database. It’s more apparent when the browser is full screen eating more memory. My guess is easier to replicate on machines with lower RAM. If you have tons of RAM you may not notice the issue as obviously. Nonetheless, something isn’t optimized here.

Thanks for sharing additional details @Michael_B; I’ve gone ahead and escalated a task for our team to investigate. I’ll keep you posted as soon as I have an update!

@Michael_B, @Nick_Morrill, quick question from our Dev Team: could you confirm wether you’re using Windows or MacOS?

Our users are seeing the issue on Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Thanks for the additional info @Michael_B and @Nick_Morrill, really appreciate it.

One more question for you: Is this happening with large projects specifically? If yes, how large is roughly the project (and could you potentially share the Project URL so we can take a closer look into this).

Thanks again for your patience and cooperation. Have a great day!

It was happening to me on a brand new project with only a few tasks.

Mail](‎Microsoft Outlook on the App Store) for Windows 10

I don’t think I’ve noticed a difference in this typing problem on whether the project was big or small.
Interesting note, google pushed us a new Chrome update today from 76.0.3809.132 (where the problem was evident) to 77.0.3865.75. It’ll be interesting to see how the problem persists on v77. I wonder.

I can confirm the issue is not resolved in Chrome 77 and yes it appears to be worse in larger projects. I will send you a DM with the project I’m working in now causing the issue @Marie

Hi @Curtis_Spear,

The issue you’re describing sounds very similar to this other bug: Task name entry is throttled Can you read through this other thread and let me know if it reflects what you’re experiencing? If so, I can add your report to the bug I filed, our team is currently investigating!

Looking forward to your reply!

This is spot on what I am facing.

Thank you!

Thanks for the quick reply. I’ve let our team know and I’ve merged this thread with the other one listed above so you can be notified as soon as we have an update. Thanks again!

I have been experiencing this for the last week or two. I thought it was a slow connection but all other inputs on other sites are fine, including this one where I am typing right now. And now I am on a fast connection and still experiencing the lag (in Chrome), it is quite frustrating. To add to the information provided by others, it is happening even when the browser is not full screen.
