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 ...
Though that would be awesome - You cannot share a Smart List. You can share a List , or numerous tasks but not a Smart List. Here is how I would do it. Search for your tag tag:grocery And either select all your task you want to Share and just share that way (I think you already know this way) The other way, which I use it , is the List. So move your ...
You might want to take a look at Google Notebook and Google Tasks Help (in Gmail).
The reason is because Google has not created any functionality in their Google Calendar APIs for doing anything with tasks. Without an API for this, applications would have to screen-scrape, which is a pain and is inconvenient. Many developers want such an API, so such functionality will probably be added soon. Until then, there's not much you can do. ...
Most of the solutions I saw here were pretty technical. Here is one that is really easy to do. You could use this Zap to automatically create Trello Cards from Google Docs spreadsheet rows. The idea is that once you make this Zap, you can paste your CSV into the a Google Doc and run it through into Trello. I think there is a limit of about 200 items per ...
I've created and shared a Google Spreadsheet which you can use to import multiple entries. It's geared towards a Scrum product backlog, but you could customise it if you want. Details here: http://www.littlebluemonkey.com/blog/online-scrum-tools-part-3-upload-existing-product-backlog-into-trello/
You could do this with Toodledo. It would use Twitter as an intermediary. You can create a Toodeldo task by sending a DM on Twitter. You can send Tweets (including DMs) via SMS.
My two cents: If you need SMS reminders for tasks, then your task-management system could probably benefit from some additional thought. You should be consulting and rearranging your daily task list multiple times per day. I use Gcal and Gtasks, assigning tasks to the day when I expect to actually do them ("do" dates, not "due" dates). On today's list, I ...
No, this isn't currently possible. (support posting) The quickest way I've found is to create a filter that applies a label to these emails. Then, I am able to open up the label, use keyboard shortcuts to navigate and open an email, and then shift+t will create a task for the opened email. Use a keyboard shortcut to get to the next email, rinse and ...
Under your iDoneThis calendar are three links: Share, Feed, and Invite. Click on Feed and turn on the secret link. You will be given a link, and this is what you feed into Google Calendar. Now just follow http://www.google.com/support/calendar/bin/answer.py?answer=37100 to feed your iDoneThis into them.

A rails offering: Tracks. Host it on your own server (or PC). I've used it in the past and liked it. Tracks is a web-based application to help you implement David Allen’s Getting Things Done™ methodology. It was built using Ruby on Rails, and comes with a built-in webserver (WEBrick), so that you can run it on your own computer if you like. ...
If you want to display Tasks in Calender you have to enable it from the left panel under "My Calenders". Once you click on it, a panel on right with Tasks will appear. Check this screenshot http://i.stack.imgur.com/nYTky.png in case you need more clarification. PS: If you want to Share Tasks you can use my tool http://gmailsharedtasks.com/
I came across some of these web apps which are based on Coveys 7 Habits of Highly Effective People . Haven't tried it myself though. PlanPlus Online Planner FractalPlanner
Recently, I started using Remember the Milk. It's a very simple task manager that has resulted in me becoming much more productive in the last month. Sure, I work alone, but I showed RTM to my dad and he has started using it with his team - they all love it. Try it out and see if you like it!
A project management app you mean? If you want to host your own app, I think Teambox is worth a look. It's a project management app written in Rails. It supports tasks, milestones, discussion threads and time tracking among other things. It has email notifications too.
Project management software? a simple web app that maps tasks, people and time. You can try Redmine which has Gantt charts support.
Great idea, but it doesn't appear that they have any kind of API or iCalendar feed for your calendar. So unfortunately, no -- there isn't a way to do this. Sad panda.
I am now just using FollowUpThen.com, it's the simplest and most reliable solution (and it's free). Just email whatever you want to an address such as firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, archive the email, and you'll get it again at the requested time. Boomerang is also an option, but it was a bit buggy for me so I switched back to FUT.
Install any.do for chrome. Sync any.do with your Google account and double check your Gmail. I just had to disable one add-on at labs (the preview panel) and everything is working perfect! Give it a try! See following article: Any.DO’s Chrome app now lets you create to-do lists directly from Gmail
There is a free, web-based version of OneNote (and Word, Excel, PowerPoint FWIW) at http://office.live.com If you've got a copy of Office (or your school uses Office) you can easily switch between the two. While you don't get quite the full MS Office experience, I've found that its quite capable.
