Jira via Google Apps: Google's black navbar is now gone. Is there another quick way to launch Jira?

I know this isn't really a jira issue, but with Google's recent change removing their black navigation bar, there is no longer an easy, quick way to launch Jira ondemand. It doesn't sound like much but I now have to login to google drive, then click the 'app button' which launches the menu, then click 'more', and finally 'Atlassian Jira'. (I also recently switched from self hosted to ondemand, which is slow to load anyway, but we wanted g-apps integration).

A simple bookmark isn't going to do it: If I launch directly into Jira it won't log me in, I have to go into Google Apps then back into Jira.

Ideally there would be a Jira Chrome App which I could launch from the new tab page, but I can't one if it exists.

Any Ideas?

Hi Shane,

Can you try using the following constructed link when signed into your Google Drive account:

Hi Paul,

Great - that one works. I was previously bookmarking https://<ourcompany>.atlassian.net/secure/Dashboard.jspa

...and that wasn't working.

Thank you,
