Integrating Asana with Google Calendar Using Zapier for Enhanced Project Tracking

Published on Feb 28th, 2024

For professionals and teams reliant on Asana for project management, coupling it with Google Calendar via Zapier is a game-changer for staying organized and on track with deadlines. Zapier, the popular automation tool, serves as a bridge between these two platforms, syncing your tasks and deadlines effortlessly.

Here's a simple guide to connect Asana with Google Calendar using Zapier:

  1. Create a Zapier Account: Start by registering for a Zapier account if you haven’t already. Visit and sign up.

  2. Zap Set-Up: Once logged in, click on ‘Make a Zap!’ button to set up your automation.

  3. Choose Asana as the Trigger App: Search for Asana in the trigger app search bar, select it, and then choose the trigger event which suits your needs - for instance, ‘New Task’ if you want each new task to be added to your calendar.

  1. Connect Your Asana Account: You'll be prompted to connect your Asana account by signing in and giving Zapier the necessary permissions.

  2. Set up Trigger: Customize the trigger by selecting the specific Asana project whose tasks you want to sync with your Google Calendar.

  3. Choose Google Calendar as the Action App: After setting up the trigger, select Google Calendar as the action app where the Asana tasks will be reflected.

  1. Connect Your Google Calendar Account: Just like with Asana, sign in to your Google account and grant Zapier permission to access your calendar.

  2. Customize the Google Calendar Event: Map out details from Asana tasks (like due dates, descriptions, etc.) to your Google Calendar's event fields to ensure accurate data syncing.

  3. Test Your Zap: Before going live, test the Zap to ensure it’s working correctly. If it’s successful, you’ll see a test task from Asana in your Google Calendar.

  1. Activate Your Zap: If everything looks good, turn on the Zap. You should now start seeing your Asana tasks show up in your Google Calendar as events.

Remember, Zapier offers different plans, and depending on your needs, the free plan might suffice. However, if your project requires more complex integrations or a higher volume of tasks, consider exploring their premium plans.

Linking Asana with Google Calendar can dramatically improve your workflow, offering a clear view of your deadlines and enabling better time management without the hassle of manual entries.
