Just started my day, opened Asana and a card on a board I’m actively using for research. I had linked a google doc file through the built in attachment process and it paused almost 2 full seconds on your servers before finally forwarding to the actual google drive link.
Two (2) seconds doesn’t sound like much unless you are trying to use Asana as part of your work flow and those 2 seconds feels like an eternity.
I don’t understand why Asana is adding an unnecessarily intermediate step to get to my file hosted on another server instead of just directlying linking to the Google Drive file?
(above links are symbolic only and are not using real file ids)
The only reason I can think of, and I hope I’m wrong, is that Asana is using the intermediate page to gather statistics.
I just double checked and in Trello they are linking directly to the file and there is zero delay (unless it’s on google’s side). And using the same connect to google drive mechanism as Asana.
So why is Asana adding a step to get to my Google Doc file and causing this unnecessarily delay?
