Tasks showing tag colour instead of project colour in team calendar

Am definitely jumping on the bandwagon on this one. Project default colour in calendar view would be super helpful. Thanks in advance.

Are there any updates on this issue? Like many in the thread, I’d like to prioritize my project colour in my calendar view. Unfortunately, he colour-coding becomes a useless feature if it’s not consistent. Any insight from your team would be greatly appreciated. :slight_smile:

Today I found out some solution:

  1. Remove color from project
    (set color to the white/grey default color in all involved projects)

  2. Mark the Tasks with one colored Tag (tab+t) - and… :tada:

I have multiple tags per task, but I’d still like the task to show up on my task calendar as the Project Color.

I’d still love the ability to choose colors in the calendar view more easily!

I did the color study again and found some interesting conclusions. Would love to have someone else do the same thing to confirm (or not) my findings 🎨 If Van Gogh used Asana: a study about colors on Asana

Is there a fix for this yet? I can’t really keep track of my tasks without this feature fixed.

I would not be so sure this is a bug, why are you? :thinking:

whether it’s a bug or not, having more control over what color your project is will only further our ability to have asana serve our workflows. being pinned down to the tag colors limits our ability to customize asana to function the way we need it to for our specific workflows.


Like many others have done on this post, I’d like to know what is the latest that Asana is doing (has done?) to address this issue of color-coding by project? I’ve seen a lot of people on here asking, but am not seeing any active responses from Asana here to keep their paying customers informed. Is someone from Asana moderating this thread, and can they please give an update? If I missed the answer somewhere, please kindly point me in the right direction. Thanks!

The way Asana manages the forum is by monitoring the requests and escalate them to the Product team. They do not say if they are working on it or not though.

Thanks. I sort of knew this. It just doesn’t seem like the best way to keep people informed, you know, letting their customers know that they hear us and providing help to resolve challenges we are facing. From as best as I can tell this issue was brought up at least 3 years ago (Nov 2017 according to some posts I have read), yet I haven’t found any solid answers/solutions from Asana, just testing and speculation from its users.
