Can Asana integrate with Google Calendar?
Until recently, there wasn’t an easy way to move your tasks from Asana to your Google Calendar. But Asana recently announced their new integration with Google Calendar via Clockwise.
This integration makes it faster and easier than ever to time block your calendar. Just estimate how long the task will take and choose when you want to complete it, and Clockwise will automatically add the task to your calendar.
Why you should sync your calendar with your task manager
This integration automates a popular time management technique called “time blocking.” Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Cal Newport all use time blocking to get more done faster. With time blocking, you choose when you’re going to work on a task in advance and schedule that time on your calendar.
Research shows time blocking helps workers:
- Prioritize your highest-leverage tasks
- Spend the right amount time on your tasks
- Estimate your work capacity more easily and accurately
If you struggle with neglecting your highest priority tasks, spending too much time on less-important tasks, and wondering what to work on next, time blocking can help. And if you want the fastest, easiest way to time block your Google Calendar, read on for step-by-step instructions. It’s super easy.
How to sync Asana with Google Calendar
Here’s how to quickly and easily time block your Google Calendar with your Asana tasks in three steps:
- Start by signing up for Clockwise, if you haven’t already.
- Then add the Clockwise app to Asana.
- In Asana, add Clockwise to your project by clicking “Customize → Add App → Clockwise.”
To start time blocking, open a task in Asana and click the “Schedule with Clockwise” button.
Tasks you’ve already scheduled will show the details right on the task. This way, everyone knows what everyone is working on, and when.
The Clockwise advantage
With Clockwise + Asana, you can schedule these tasks during your Focus Time so they don’t conflict with your meetings or other events.
You can also choose to make your Asana tasks flexible, so Clockwise can schedule them to preserve as much Focus Time as possible. Clockwise will also automatically fix any scheduling conflicts that arise. If a colleague needs to schedule something over your task, Clockwise can move it to the next-best spot, based on your preferences.
