Im having an Issue when I try to attach a Google Doc to a task in asana.

 This is my task, In a step before I created this doc from a template

 

But the result is an attachment with a .txt, not a reference to the google drive doc 

 

Can some one Help me please?

Hi! My name is Justin and I write for the Zapier blog. Let’s see if we can figure this out together.

The problem is that Asana is looking for a file to attach. Google Docs are not files, per se. It’s a little confusing, but basically there’s nothing for Asana to download—you’ve just sent along a link to the Google Doc. It would be different if you were linking to, say, an image file (.jpg, .png) or a downloadable document (.docx)

 

You could move the Google Doc link to the Task section, so people can click through. Does that makes sense?
