How to remove Asana's Sync with Outlook?

I synced Asana to my Outlook account, but no longer require it. I have tried to follow the online help instruction to right-click the project and remove, but I am not given that option when I right-click. I’m sure I’m doing something wrong, but I really need help!

If you go to your avatar -> Profile Settings -> Apps you can Deauthorize Outlook and the sync won’t happen anymore.

Unfortunately Outlook doesn’t show in ‘apps’ in my avatar :frowning:

Any other thoughs?

Thanks again.

Sorry no idea :frowning: maybe @Julien_RENAUD knows? (he is my go-to guys these days :p)

Thank anyway for your help.

Thanks again. Really sorry, but I am very new to this - will they automatically receive your post, or do I have to contact them? If so, how do I do that?

Thanks for the mention. Fortunately Marie answered, I am only using Gmail ; -)

My pleasure. Thanks for coming back to me.

@Tony_Rapacioli make sure to post the solution here!

Unfortunately, whilst the Asana tasks are no longer being copied to my Outlook account, they are now copying an iCal account that I don’t use. Not that it’s a major issue, but iCal does does keep notifying me every time I add tasks in Asana, so it would be preferable to find a fix.

Hi @Tony_Rapacioli. Have you tried to follow these steps to remove the synced projects from your Apple calendar? https://asana.com/guide/help/api/calendar-sync#gl-ical. Let me know if that helps!

Please post the answer. I’m looking to remove Asana’s outlook plugin from my MacOS outlook client.

Ha! less than meets the eye. You can follow Microsoft’s instructions for removing add-ins from Outlook 2016 MacOS. They are here.

So… I’m on Outlook for Mac - How do I remove the calendar sync?

Thanks!

Hi @Grace_Gardner and welcome to the Forum!

This article from the Microsoft help center might help :slight_smile: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/add-or-remove-a-calendar-in-outlook-for-mac-5f6723c1-01f3-4a63-bb5c-f9a8f93059c5

Hi Marie, when I synced the calendar to my iCal, I synced it to an existing calendar so it doesn’t appear as it’s own calendar that I can “unsubscribe” to… How can I remove it?

Hi @Cristi_Jayo,

have you tried this steps? (Refer to the " To remove a synced project from Outlook Calendar:" Section) https://asana.com/guide/help/api/calendar-sync#gl-outlook

My calendar is iCal, not Outlook. I don’t see any of those options. My calendar isn’t appearing as it’s own item, but rather it exists within an existing calendar.

I just went in and deleted every item by hand… I’m going to submit some feature requests for this, thanks.
