I tried the sync, but it didn’t work. To be fair, instead of inputting the Workspace and Project Name, I input the Workspace and Assigned to (I wanted all my tasks, not just one project’s tasks to integrate).

zzbots is sending me this error on both bots: (on the Google “New Detailed Event”)

  • You need to have writer access to this calendar.

I’m not sure where where I went wrong because I’m using my own Google account of course.

Any advice?

This most likely does not have to do with how you set up the bots. Even if the bots are set up correctly, it will require that you have writer access, or the ability to edit the Google Calendar you are syncing with. This will be a setting in Google Calendar.

You may want to double check your Google Calendar settings to make sure that you have full access to the calendar that you are syncing with.

I hope this helpful in answering your question. If you have any more questions, or need help setting anything up, feel free to chat us on our website or email us at support@zzbots.com.

Hi folks,

We have just released an update to our integration that allows you to control the duration of tasks in the calendar. This allows you to utilize our integration if you are using the time blocking strategy. You can then have tasks from Asana flow into your calendar, setup the duration and even move items around and it will update Asana.

We also have a time blocking setup available where the due dates in Asana will not be updated as long as there is no conflict. So if you have a task due on Friday morning, but you’re planning on being out of the office, you can place it on your calendar for Thursday morning instead. Asana will still show that the task is due on Friday, but your calendar will show that you are working on it on Thursday. If you have custom fields available, we can expose that information back into Asana as well in a custom field to show when the work is planned vs. due.

Below is a quick animation to show the integration in action. You can find out more here: https://www.projectprocs.com/post/time-blocking-with-asana

Maggie, unfortunately the Product Procs sync updates in December to add the time blocking have broken the traditional sync that was working pretty well previously. Now tasks are shifted so they end at the ‘due time’ rather than that being the start time - which was great for slotting tasks for when they should be done during the day. Now the calendar and Asana appear out of sync.

Also, I’m now seeing recurring tasks that had a due time and default duration of an hour suddenly become 24 hour long tasks that end at the due time.

I appreciate you adding new features but they broke the only usable calendar sync option available for Asana. I really hope you can fix things or roll back the changes asap.
