Features: Attachments


Ditto will download your attachments and re-upload them as new attachments on copied tasks.

This means there is a limit on attachment size of 100MB, so files larger than this attached from DropBox will fail to copy, and will instead be inserted as a comment with a link to the file in its original location.

Note Files attached from Google Drive are currently not supported, and will always be attached as a link.

Hi Ben,

Sorry this has taken so long to fix - attachments should now be correctly copied. This also fixes the bug reported from November where only the first attachment was copied 😳

Apologies to anyone affected by this, it should now behave in the same way as the original tool and copy all attachments correctly.

First, this project has been spectacular, thank you.

Regarding attachments. I am not sure if this is the expected behavior or not, so want to verify.

I am seeing a link to the attachments in the update log, so the files are accessible, but they are not “attached” in the traditional way where the files are viewable as a preview, or in the “files” section of a project.

It would be amazing if they also appeared in this area, but currently they show up as a link within the task and previews or associated metadata (filenames, etc.) are not associated.

I see something along the lines of: {Name} attached https://app.asana.com/app/asana/-/get_asset?asset_id={assetid} on 05 May 20 18:28 UTC

Thanks for the bug reports, I’ll check more thoroughly what might have been happening with the attachments.

Doesn’t seems to work with multiple attachments, only the first one is transferred, and is in the comments, not attach to the actual task

For some reason, I have an attachment that’s lost in the transfer. There is a link to it in the message transfer log, but the file is not listed as an attachment to the task itself.

It is a PNG file, which is probably the most used extension for attachments…

This wasn’t a problem when using the old tool (https://asana.kothar.net/) for which the attachments worked correctly.
