Organizes All Your Tasks In the Palm of Your Hand
Google Tasks is a virtual version of a written to-do list. You can create tasks with subtasks in a specific list category. The first automatically generated list category is named “My Tasks”. You can split up the categories of your task lists by naming new lists something like:
- The room in which you have to clean up such as the living room, kitchen, or bedroom.
Now that you have generated categories, now it’s time to add the tasks to each category. For each task, you give it a name and the time and date you want to complete the task. Save it to your task list. You can go back to edit it and add subtasks to be even more organized so you do not forget the steps you have to take to finish the task.
For example, if you want to have spaghetti for lunchtime around noon, then the name of your task could be “Lunch Time” while your subtasks may be:
- Cook the pasta.
- Cut the tomatoes.
- Prepare the pasta sauce.
- Grate parmesan cheese.
Integrates Into Your Google Calendar
Once you create a task, it will automatically integrate into your Google Calendar as long as the proper settings are calibrated to make this happen. Simply open your Google Calendar app and go to the left panel menu. Find the “My calendars” option and click on it. Check mark the tasks box if it is not already highlighted. Then, your tasks will pop up on your Google Calendar to give you reminders to complete them.
The App Reminds You Of Overdue Tasks
When you open up the Google Tasks app, any overdue tasks will be highlighted for you to show that they should take priority over whatever else you have to do. This will be only if you set a date and time to have the task done. However, the task will not be highlighted as a priority if you do not add a specific time to it.
Tips for Keeping On Top of Your To-Do List
Keeping on top of your to-do list can seem daunting, especially if it is a long and tedious one for the day. The night before, list all the tasks that you have to do so that it integrates into your Google Calendar. This way, you will be ready to start tackling the list after you get ready in the morning.
If you set a specific task for a certain time during the day, adhere to completing it during that time frame so you can move on to the next one. Of course, you may feel like you want to finish your tasks quickly and all at once, but that is not humanly possible. Take everything step-by-step and the to-do list will be finished in no time!
