Google Drive power-up is not worling properly on the desktop app

I use the desktop app and the google drive power-up.

I have changed my google login and now I get the following error:

When I try to attach a document to a card, a browser window opens with the file picker (before this promt opened in side the app). I choose a file and then the window closes and nothing more happens.

When I use a browser for trello it work fine.

I have tried loggin in and out and disconneting google drive.

Any suggestions!

Hi @Jonas Napier 

I remember having this problem when I started using the app as well, I don't think I ever worked out what was going on.

I will say that I don't use the desktop app anymore, ever. I don't even think I have it installed on any of my machines, I do it all through Chrome. Because Trello doesn't have an offline mode, there's really no point for me to have the app, also, because I have a large number of Chrome extensions for Trello, that don't work with the app, for me personally, it was pointless to have the app.

Could I ask why you use the desktop app? I'd be genuinely interested to see why you use the desktop app and not through your browser.

All right - makes sense.

I use the app because I like to have the icon in the process line/bar. That makes it easier to locate and it limits the number of tabs that I have open in the browser - and easier to switch back and forth.

I just created a short cut for trello, that opens in a new window - so that is very similar to using the app.
