Google Tasks is a lesser-known feature of Gmail that can prove to be an incredibly useful to-do list.
With Tasks you can just click and type to add new tasks, set due dates or add notes
, and then tick each task off as you complete it. Your task list stays up to date no matter how you access it (which you can do via other Google services such as Calendar and through
your mobile device’s Gmail app), and it’s always with you wherever you go. When used through your desktop computer via Gmail, Tasks will be displayed in an ever-present window in the corner of your inbox, so you can easily add emails as tasks – for instance, if there is an email you need to respond to and you want to be reminded later on.
