Sync PTO/Out of office in MS Outlook calendar with Asana for blocking task assignments?

Is there a way to integrate Asana with Outlook PTO calendar info? OR maybe there’s a feature in Asana that could be used like the “out of office” to block assigning tasks due when people have given some sort of notice that they’ll be on vacation.

Hi @Sheryl_Kay,

Asana has an Out of Office feature; see How to Control Your Profile Settings in Asana | Product guide • Asana Product Guide

Will that meet your needs?

(FYI we also have a more comprehensive Holiday/Time-off feature in our Flowsana integration; see Flowsana: workflow automation for your Asana projects - #170 by Phil_Seeman)

@Phil_Seeman, I was wondering about the OP’s question, too. My need has to do with the fact that so many of our Asana users are new to the app and frequently forget to put an OOO message there, but they will almost always put one in Outlook. I don’t necessarily need to block people from assigning tasks (though that would be nice). Sorry this doesn’t help solve the OP’s issue, but maybe this will help Asana better understand this particular need.
