Tasks in Calendar don't inherit the color of the project

Hi! I’m managing several projects at the same time, so when in Calendar view several tasks from different projects will appear on same days. They all appear in white (no color) and it’s very diffcult to know which one belongs to which project. From some tutorial I’ve seen there is a way to make each task inherit the color of its project. The color is set to “asana default”.

Thanks in advance for your help! :slightly_smiling_face:


Hi there! Are you sure you are not looking within a specific project rather than “My Tasks”? I believe that by default all tasks in “My Tasks” calendar view will automatically be the color of the project they are apart of. As long as you give the project a color (not white) then the tasks should show up as colored in your My Tasks calendar. If you are in a specific project, the tasks will turn the color of whatever custom field/tag is applied to the task (if you have Asana Default selected for the color).

I’m having the same issue as @AleZio. I have colors set for all my projects but the colors are only showing on the My Tasks Calendar view for some of them, not all. Do you know how to make this happen with all projects?

Indeed, I was actually looking within a specific project and not under “My Tasks”… :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Thanks so much @Ashley_DeVore :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Happy to help @AleZio! It happens :blush:
