Ability to add event to team calendar without assigning to project

I love that you can add a single event to your personal calendar without assigning it to a project. However, there isn’t a way to do this on the team calendar. This would be so helpful for our company’s monthly and weekly events that don’t necessarily belong to a project.

Hi @Stephanie9 and welcome to the Asana Community Forum! Apologies for the delay in replying to you!

Let me start with a little bit of context. In order to appear in your Team calendar, the task you’re creating must belong to the Team and therefore to a Project; in fact your My Task calendar operated this way too! In the backend, your My Task is essentially a project containing all the tasks assigned to you; with a calendar just like in a project!

Implementing this feature would require a lot of work; we probably won’t be able to implement it anytime soon, but we will definitely keep it in mind :slight_smile: Thanks again for taking the time to share your feedback with us; have a great day and a wonderful 2019 :slight_smile:

Hi! I’d like to see if there’s any way to track events without necessarily assigning them to a project or task. Our team would love to centralize our workflow in Asana, particularly with regard to track events with the date, time, location, and brief descriptions of the events. This is to track events that our team plans as well as external events that we are either a part of or that we attend as an organization. Is there an existing feature that allows us to do this, and if not, how can we help make it happen?

Asana only deals with tasks and projects. Why not have a project with external events as tasks?

That’s how we’ve been doing it so far, but we’d rather these events show up on Asana’s calendar like they do on Google Calendar, iCalendar, etc. so we can consolidate all of our team’s work on this platform with minimal confusion.

Doesn’t it work if events are tasks with a due date?
