Outlook plugin authentication problem

When installing the Asana plugin for Outlook (Office 365 Business version 1907 build 11901.20176 click-to-run), the plugin itself seems to run fine. However, when interacting with it, Asana requires a login which acts like it’s accepting my credentials, but then never actually authenticates. So every time I try, I log in and nothing happens.

Welcome to the Forum @_berto_bertolacci! :wave: I’m sorry to hear that you are running into this issue.

Could you please try to uninstall and reinstall the addin? https://support.office.com/en-us/article/view-manage-and-install-add-ins-in-office-programs-16278816-1948-4028-91e5-76dca5380f8d to see if it solves the issue? We would be really grateful.

Could you also confirm if your are experiencing this with Desktop or Web Outlook app?

Thanks for your patience; I look forward to your reply!

I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin, but it’s still doing the same thing. I’m running the desktop version outlook.

You can also try Sendana found at sendana.net.com. It is a very full featured Outlook Add-in for desktop.

I am also having this issue. Is there a resolution?

Sorry to hear you are running into this issue! Have you already try uninstalling and reinstalling the addin?

I’m not sure if this helps, but we had issues with the plugin as well. It wasn’t until we updated to MS 2019 that the plugin worked properly. If you have the option to upgrade this might be the solution.

Just a thought.


I have uninstalled / reinstalled.

Desktop. MS Office 365 Business. Up to date on updates.

Same issue here. Also desktop, 365

Still having the same issue as well. It will just keep trying to login but doesn’t actually result in anything.

I am also having the same issue.

Hi there, everyone in our company was having the same issue as well for several days, but magically started working again about 2 hours ago. Is it working on your end now?
