Use this link by Google to open Tasks standalone: https://tasks.google.com/embed/?origin=https://calendar.google.com&fullWidth=1 If you have multiple Google accounts logged in at the same time, you can add the target account to the link url like so: https://tasks.google.com/embed/?origin=https://calendar.google.com&fullWidth=1&authuser=example@...

I recently set up the following Stylish script as a very hackish workaround for this: @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml); @-moz-document url-prefix("https://www.google.com/calendar") { .calListChip[title='Tasks'] { display: none; } #calcontent.eui-t .calListRow { height: unset; line-height: unset; max-height: 19px; } ....

Unfortunately, like the "Birthdays" calendar, you can't unsubscribe or otherwise remove the "Tasks" calendar. The best you can hope to achieve is to not have any entries appear in your calendar (by de-selecting it). The Tasks widget on the right is at least hide-able/removable. (Click the close button on the widget or minimize the whole panel.)

Click on the drop down arrow next to Reminders in your calendar list. There should be an option to switch back to Google Tasks.

You could use Full Screen for Google Tasks

Here is what I do: reduce my remaining uncompleted task list as much as I can. create a new task list with a very similar name move the remaining uncompleted tasks to the new list DELETE the old list. Google will warn you that the old list will be permanently deleted. Say yes. Done.

(See also: my accepted answer) The closest answer that I have is renaming an existing list. Edit: Adding example If you have: List A List C List B List D And want A B C D, then rename List A List B -> C List C -> B List D This requires emptying out or moving tasks between lists to make sense, but it allows the list order to be as desired.

At this time the Google Apps (Calendar, Gmail, Keep, Now ) don't have either a user interfaces' command or API's class for the new reminders to convert a Google task to a Google reminder. An alternative could be the use of a user script1 that use the Google Tasks API or Google Apps Script. Notes: 1 A user script is a code snippet that changes the look ...

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 ...

To mark all completed tasks as uncomplete, I wrote this little snippet in some spare time today, which you can run in the browser console (F12) of a modern browser, when the "completed tasks" list is open in Gmail. If it doesn't work, let me know, but it worked for me. var checkboxes = document.getElementById('tasksiframe').contentWindow.document ....

In September 2020, I noticed that the web client has added grippers to re-order task lists under the list selection dropdown once the mouse hovers over the list name. (The mobile version does not have this yet.)

Figured this one out - hit the Cog when viewing your calendar and switch your view (temporarily) from "Compact" to "Cozy". An arrow will appear on the divider between your calendar and task list. Click that! Then you can switch back to "Compact".

Here's a short script I wrote that copies tasks with due dates to the calendar (which you can set to have reminders for) http://msftb.blogspot.com/2015/09/why-cant-you-get-calendar-alerts-from.html

The latest version of Google Calendar Android app shows all your reminders from Google Now and Keep as well. (Google Support) For your second question, you could create a checklist/tasklist on Keep and share it with your friends or family. (Google Support)

I'm also an old Google Tasks Canvas user, and I built a complete replacement web app for it (with upgrades) called GTaskD that you can use for free: https://tasks.gtaskd.com/ Warning: 2019-08-30 is the date that Google will get rid of multiple levels of subtasks in the API itself (as opposed to just their interfaces), so third party apps won't be able to ...

I used simplegamer solution with tasks.google.com/embed link but for javascript I prefer greasemonkey, so you save 1 click every time. This is the script I use in greasemonkey: // ==UserScript== // @name google tasks // @version 1 // @grant none // ==/UserScript== // @match https://tasks.google.com/embed/list/~default?fullWidth=1 // @match https://...

If you own all your Calendars, you can drive Tasks and Reminders to the bottom of the list by changing the names all of your calendars to be alphanumerically above R. I use numbers to make them appear in order of importance. For example Events 01 Routine 02 Paid Work 03 Family Tasks Reminders

Almost, but not quite. (At least, with Gmail and Google Calendar alone.) While you're reading your message, open the "More" menu and choose "Add to Tasks". This will add a task to your Google Tasks with the subject of your message as the text of the task and a link to the email message. Click the arrow to go to the "more" menu for that item. Then choose ...

Google replaced the Tasks calendar with Reminders. You can switch back by clicking the reminders drop down arrow and select "Switch to Tasks".

This doesn't seem possible. Further, Google Tasks has been mostly deprecated in favor of Reminders, so I doubt there will be any further development by Google to improve Tasks.

Well, I wrote a "simple script" which implements recurrent tasks in Google Tasks. Published in the Chrome Store: Recurrent Tasks for GTasks After installing it you can create a recurrent task by adding recurrence pattern to task notes. In your case: *E 1 W 35 Which means "every one week on 3rd and 5th day". Simple!

Have checked what Morad replied and it is correct. You can use [r:HH:MM] in the notes section of the tasks to set a reminder. You will see a reminder only when you are using an app like Astrid or Gtasks that provides a reminder facility while syncing to Google Tasks.
