Hi, just want to go on the record here and acknowledge that I will probably give up on using Asana soon without a significant improvement to the google calendar integration. In its current state it is useless to me. Updating just twice a day does not help me keep track of a busy and dynamic schedule, nor does it help me integrate the power of google calendar to support calendar invites to meetings, switching a meeting task to a google hangout, etc. etc. Real time, two way google calendar integration is available through less expensive collaborative project and task management tools such as gqueues, high task, drop task, etc. I currently end up having to manage two different task list platforms and I just can’t afford the time to do that anymore.
I am puzzled why the google calendar implementation is so klunky with Asana. My inquiries on this subject during the past year have indicated that there are no plans to improve the situation either. I have been holding out for the integration to be transferred from the now extinct Sunrise Calendar to the Outlook App but I am losing my patience there too. I suppose there must be a good reason this is not simply built into the core of Asana but it is probably coming at the cost of this user.
I would love to hear otherwise of course.

Thank you so much for all your feedback on this topic and for your patience. We’re aware this feature request is very popular among Forum Members and we’re regularly reconsidering it when planning our Roadmap. As explained in How we’re listening to your product feedback, we balance each of our decision on several criteria (resources, product development and Voice of Customer to name a few); as a result, some popular forum requests are not always prioritized as quickly as users would like to. Our Platform team is currently building exciting integrations that we believe will help you streamline your workflow (I’m hoping to have some great news to share soon!); unfortunately, this also means we were not able to prioritize a V2 of our Calendar integration allowing you to sync events both ways.
With that said, Asana is built on an open platform so when there is additional functionality that will help improve your workflow, developers can build apps to do just that. Here are some apps to check out that might help solve the issues you are facing:
Again, thank you so much for using this Forum as I primary feedback channel, while I don’t comment every day on this thread, rest ensured that I’m reading and reporting on every new post published here.
