Chances are high, that as a business owner and/or manager, you have a lengthy and difficult-to-keep-track-of to-do list. There is always going to be some task or project that needs your attention, and being pulled in so many directions at once can be tough to manage. If you use Gmail, however, there is a great feature – Google Tasks – and it could help you keep on top of what you need to get done.
Google Tasks is a sub-feature included in all versions of Gmail. As the name suggests, its main function is to allow you to set up tasks directly in Gmail. With this feature you can create itemized lists, set due dates, add notes, and create tasks directly from Gmail messages.
When you use this feature, you will see a chat-like window appear at the bottom-right of the screen. The window looks and functions a lot like a Hangouts chat in that you can minimize it and even pop it out of the Gmail window.
As we noted above, Google Tasks is a feature of Gmail, and can be accessed by:
When you do this, you should notice the Tasks window open at the bottom-right of the screen, beside any open chats or emails you may be composing. Once you have opened this you can add a new task by clicking on the + at the bottom right, or by clicking in any blank area in the window. You should then notice a square box appear with a blinking cursor beside it. You can then enter the task you would like to make note of.
Once a task is finished you can tick the box beside it and it will be struck through, indicating it has been completed. You can then click on it and press the trash can icon at the bottom to delete the task from your list.
