Google Tasks Provide Integrated “To Do” Management

Back in mid-July, Google promoted “Tasks” from a Google Labs experiment to a full feature within Google Apps (all editions, learn more here …)

For me, the best part is the level of integration not usually found between email, tasks, and calendars. For example, you can:

  • Turn an email into a task using one click on the More Actions menu
  • Manage tasks with due dates as calendar entries (listed as events by due date)

Reminders for tasks are the same as reminders for calendar events: 1 screen; 1 notice; 1 user experience.

Google has included a mobile view for tasks as well as many supported languages.

Give Tasks a try and let me know what YOU think!
