gMail Even More‎ > ‎


With Tasks, you can create lists of items, set due dates and notes, and even add Gmail messages directly to Tasks.

Select the Mail dropdown> in the top left choose Tasks.

To enter tasks, click in the Tasks window and start typing. Once you've typed in a task, press Enter to create another task, or use the + button at the bottom of your list.

Here are some of the options available in Google Tasks:

  • Create a task about a Gmail message using the keyboard shortcut Shift + T, or by choosing Add to Tasks from the More options menu in your Gmail conversation.
  • Switch between existing lists or create new ones using the List icon in the bottom right corner.
  • Create "subtasks" by using Tab to indent them, and Shift + Tab to move them back.
  • Move tasks by grabbing them to the left of the check mark and dragging them up and down.
  • Add new tasks to the middle of a list by clicking at the beginning or end of an existing task and pressing Enter.
  • Check off Tasks when you're done, and use Actions > Clear completed to hide them. Don't worry, you can still view them later!
  • Print your tasks by clicking Actions and selecting Print task list.
