Calendars & Asana

The Sync to Calendar option helps you meet deadlines by syncing your tasks to Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Outlook, or any calendar that allows you to subscribe by URL.

You can sync any project, tag, or My tasks list to an external calendar.

Once synced, you will see tasks with due dates from those projects as all day events. You can click each event to visit the task in Asana.

A few things to note:

  • Only tasks with due dates will sync
  • Calendar sync is one-way: updates to your calendar will not be reflected in Asana
  • Completed tasks will not sync
  • Subtasks also sync to external calendars
  • Team calendar cannot be synced
  • It's not possible to sync calendars by URL to Outlook for Mac 2011
  • The initial sync to your calendar should be instant, but subsequent syncs may take up to a day
  • The maximum number of synced tasks is 5000
