How can I integrate Asana tasks to Google Calendar and adjust the tasks in the calendar?

In the past I used Todoist for task management. When I would integrate google calendar to it the tasks were able to be moved around.

Whereas, with syncing my Asana tasks with Google calendar I can’t edit anything.

Is there a way to workout around this? Such as using zapier to do it?

I would like to time block without having to enter everything twice

@Hi @Ethan_Schneider :wave: thank you for reaching out!

As it stands, the calendar sync is one-way: updates to your calendar will not be reflected in Asana. You can learn more about it in this handy article: https://asana.com/guide/help/api/calendar-sync

There is an existing thread in the Forum regarding this topic: Real time, two ways Calendar integration. If you haven’t yet, I would encourage to upvote it.

With that said, I would also recommend you to have a look at these 3 third-party integrations:

Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any follow-up questions!

Soo… Reading the article it seems like it will be a while before this gets fixed? Considered a few years have passed by and it hasn’t been a priority.

  • I checked out project-buddy. Doesn’t work as smooth as todoist.
  • Skedpad is another application to manage. Too tedious to switch back and forth.

Not sure I’m interested in spending more each month for 3rd party integrations when I Just spent around $400 for Asana and I was expecting the integration to be equal to todoist if not better based on the drastic price difference…

Tested zzbot & spent a ton of time trying to get it setup. Not very smooth. Requires a 2 minute wait to update.

I’ve spent the past 4-5 hours trying to find a way around this.
