There is a "More Actions" button above each email with an option to "Add to tasks". This then adds the email to your list of tasks which appears in the bottom right of your screen. Clicking on the small arrow to the right of the task allows you to edit the options and attributes assigned to the task, for example to set a reminder or additional notes about ...

Google Tasks does not provide email alerts. As mentioned by @Antoops, you can set alerts for Google Calendar events which may provide the functionality you are looking for. It would be nice to see Google add the ability to set alerts for tasks, but I think they have left it out on purpose (since a task list is something you should check regularly by design ...

Click on the location switcher above the left navigation (if you are in your inbox, it will say "Gmail ▼") and select "Tasks."

Actually, marking a task as complete doesn't delete it, even after you choose "clear completed tasks". You can always view completed tasks. In the console view ( https://mail.google.com/tasks/a/yourdomain.com/canvas ) just choose the "Completed tasks" view. In Gmail or Gcal, you can choose "Actions/View Completed Tasks".

If you hold the shift key down when you click "Compose" the editor opens in a new window. You can resize that to whatever you need.

Install the android app Gtasks before uninstalling Astrid. This app will ask if you want to import astrid tasks. Answer Yes and you are done ! GTasks syncs with Google tasks and your calendar. Took only 5 minutes to setup.

If you have keyboard shortcuts turned on, just use Shift-T. (You can then use Shift-Enter to get to the task options.)

As of this moment, no. It seems they are working on it, since it ranked among the top five in a "top requests" survey.

There's no way to export tasks. At best, you can email the task list to your Google Apps account and copy+paste, but again they become one big task instead of several, individual tasks.

When you expand "My Calendars" in the left-side bar, you should see "Tasks". Click on it to enable that calendar. Also, go to Settings -> Calendar and see if Tasks is enabled.

Holding down the delete button for 10 minutes solved the issue

I use a particular task list for packing for trips. It's gotten quite extensive over the years. The only way I've found that keeps me from unchecking every task in my list is that I've created a handful of primary tasks, each of those contain many sub-tasks. So when I check the primary task it'll mark all of the sub-tasks as complete. Conversely when you ...

I did not find any answer on the web so I felt free to explore. I saw that putting tasks as uncompleted and then marking them as completed UNCLEARS them. I know it would be hard with a lot of tasks but didn't find another way. Best luck!

We are a Google Apps Reseller. The two most successful tools we have seen our customers using are: shared Google Spreadsheets and Trello. The spreadsheet might seem crude but it is very flexible in how you set it up, it can be sorted and comments can be inserted. This would be the quickest for you to start using right away. Depending on the complexity and ...

Perhaps you could create a google account that you could share and create the Tasks under that?

For GTD, have you looked at ActiveInbox yet? I used to use it when it was called GTDInbox or some such. It is not bad, though if you have large volume of emails, your mind just keep getting pulled aside by that magic Inbox (6) sign. Gmail tasks I do not think are particularly useful for GTD, though you could always have them as Next Actions. I use Calendar ...

https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/106237?hl=en The short of it is go to Actions under Tasks then select Clear Completed Tasks. Unfortunately as Google states in the link up above this just hides them, but unless you select to view them again, they're out of sight. There is no bulk delete or delete upon completion setting. Only deleting 1 task at a ...

I did not do anything, yet today (8 months after I asked this question) I noticed that Tasks reappeared in my list of calendars. I cannot explain it.

I found in the support forum for the service supplied by Alex another service which appears to be active in development at https://tasks-backup.appspot.com. Sadly it still gave errors for me but may work for others.

You need to use a third-party service called Google Tasks Porter. I never used it, so I don't know how it works, but Cnet has a nice article that describes the procedure. Point your browser to Google Tasks Porter. The first time you use it, you need to give it permission to access your Google account, which takes several clicks. (If you use multiple ...

You could try CompanionLink, which is supposed to sync Outlook to Google, and vice versa.

I believe you could do this using Google Apps Script to update the Google Calendar when the change happens on the Google Site. This is probably more complex than what you were looking for but I don't believe there is any way to do this without writing a custom script. Some information on the Calendar and Sites services API: Calendar Services Sites ...

Based on this question on Stack Overflow there isn't currently an API for GTasks.

I don't know any web app that is doing that, but there are a lot of iPhone/iPad/Android apps that can be use to manage GTask offline, like: GeeTasks gTasks Hope this helps.

You could just move them to their own list.

I think it is not possible to just hide tasks. Your options are either strike through or delete.
