Weekly, daily - calendar views please :-)

(Hi @Ben_Essells, FYI I moved this to the Product Feedback section as the Developers & API section is for 3rd party developers, not Asana’s own developers.)

Thank you, Phil

Hi @Ben_Essells and welcome to the Asana Community Forum!

Apologies for the trouble there; you’re completely right, as it stands, it is not possible to get a weekly view in your calendar. We actually already have a #productfeedback thread on this topic, so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with this existing thread to gather all feedback on this topic in one place; hope that’s ok!

In the meantime, you could potentially use the Timeline to visualize your work for the following week; here is more info on Timeline and how to zoom in/out to adjust your view: https://asana.com/guide/help/premium/timeline

Just to summarize calendar reality for any newcomers: Calendar views (for a team or a project or My Tasks) are inflexible, can be displayed on a monthly basis only, with no filtering, even for closed tasks. For my huge monitor at comfortable resolution, I can see at most 4 tasks per day (Asana chooses which), and the rest are collapsed. It’s barely useable even for 1 person and breaks down for a project or team of any size.

What you said @Stephanie_Oberg, is unfortunately true. What can we do, that’s Asana team decision, maybe they will release better calendar, but I doubt that it will be available on free plan (which I’m using). Asana is a misterious tool, is excells in some parts, so flexible and usable… and totaly rigid in some other parts. Well, you can’t make everybody happy, I guess… There is no perfect tool… unless you are developer and you make one for yourself :slight_smile:

Please do something Asana! Seems like a barrier to many and for me, its my primary view but also incredibly frustrating.

There is a way… I am using reddiapps to two way sync my asana tasks with my Outlook Calendar. This allows you to move your tasks around in your day and asana will be updated. An added bonus is that you can then use all of the options that are available to you in Outlook to display your asana tasks (which appear on their own calendar on Outlook but can be toggled on and off to be overlayed with your main calendar). This means you can fine tune the calendar to show not just day / week / month but zoom in with 10 minute increments, show as a list, select an irregular pattern of days… lots of flexibility. I am not affiliated with reddiapp but finding it to be a reliable sync solution with added benefits. @Maggie_Reddi

I am sure the same could be achieved with google calendar.

Another killer benefit - it shows tasks from all your workspaces! Awesome.

yes for sure this is a workaround, but I do now want to switch between two apps that is cluttering my workflow. I want to do that in ASANA. I did not understand why after all the years of developing that really good software there is no further development at the calendar view. This are basic taskmanagement features.

I’ve already given up on Asana because of the lack of this feature. I am looking for something that lets me choose the view that is most useful to me - daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly etc. Hopefully I’ll find something.

Yes, a weekly / daily / hourly calendar view would make the world of difference. When I add tasks, I’m just guessing and hoping for the best when the day comes up that I can get it all done. It’s likely we’ll be moving on to another project management app if this isn’t resolved in the short term as it’s not a viable long term solution for us.

A weekly view seems like a no-brainer. Not sure why this isn’t implemented but it definitely prevents me from being able to plan my tasks with any sort of (useable) visual interface. Pretty please?

It seems like this has been an ongoing request for a long time now. I really wish this at least had a weekly view, I have so many tasks each day, it would be so much easier if I could see them all at a glance. Please make this happen for us!

Could we have daily & weekly view on list view too ? Filter by specific day - Flick through dates with scroll arrows

+1 for weekly and daily views! Pretty please?

I have proposition to add weekly and daily views to Asana calender. It’s difficult to manage tasks in monthly view when you have a lot of small tasks per day! It’s possible to export tasks to Outlook and Google calender but it will be good to use Asana for this.
Screenshots of daily and weekly views are in attachments

In calendar view, I would also like to see daily and weekly views

Thanks for sharing your feedback with us, @Glenneth! We already have a thread about this topic. I’ve gone ahead and merged your request with Weekly, daily - calendar views please slight_smile to consolidate votes.
