Posted on Friday November 15, 2019Small- to medium-sized business owners or managers deal with many different tasks from day to day. Having to do many things at once can be tough, but Google Tasks can help. This app can make accomplishing everything on your to-do list simple and easy. Here's a quick look at the benefits of Google Tasks.
Google Tasks is a to-do list application that's linked to your Gmail account and Google Calendar. With Google Tasks, you can create to-do lists for the day, week, month, or year. You can also add notes to provide more detail to each task as well as set reminders so you never miss a deadline. All lists you create are stored in the cloud, ensuring that you can access them on any internet-connected device whenever, wherever.
On your PC, you can easily access Google Tasks through your Gmail inbox. When you open Gmail, you'll see a sidebar on the right. Click on the blue icon with a white diagonal dash at the bottom of the sidebar to launch Google Tasks.
To create a new task, simply click Add a task. To edit the details of the task, add a subtask, or set a due date, hover over the task and select Edit (represented by a pencil icon). You can also right-click on the task and select a specific action from the menu.
Once you finish a task, hover over the circular icon next to the task. This will transform the circle into a checkmark, and clicking on this will mark the task complete and remove it from your list. If you accidentally strike a task from your list before it's done, simply click Undo at the bottom of the window.
You can also install the Google Tasks app onto your smartphone or tablet so you can check and edit your lists even while on the go.
