Tech Tip Thursday - Start Times and Reminders in Tasks

Google has updated Tasks to be the one destination to track what you need to do in G Suite. These features will help make sure all of your to-dos are in Tasks, and ensure that you can keep track of the deadlines associated with them.
You can now:
  • Set a date and time for your tasks and receive notifications -  When you create or edit a task, you’ll now see a new “Add date/time” field.
  • Create repeating tasks  - After clicking on Add date/time, you can enter the date, time, and recurrence of this task.

  • Import reminders into Tasks: 
    • When you open Tasks on the web or your mobile app, you’ll see a prompt to copy your existing reminders over to Tasks. You can also trigger this manually by opening the overflow menu in the top right.
    • You’ll be able to select which list in Tasks you’d like to add them to, or create a new list.
    • You can also indicate whether or not you’d like these reminders to be deleted once they are copied.
