G Suite Tip – how to create a list for your tasks

Keep track of your to-do list digitally through Google Tasks, a simple application located within the right-hand panel of all G Suite Applications for easy viewing and editing. This means the same tasks will appear in both Gmail and Calendar.

Tasks can be used to remind you of emails to send, appointments that need to be made, or documents that need to be written. (I have created a Google Task to complete this GRCC Today article within Google Docs!) Tasks can be used as a simple way to track how you are meeting your daily goals, and are there for your individual use.

If your objective is to create reminders that are shared with others, you can learn more about the other application found in the right-hand panel through the Google Keep instructions online.

You can create lists to keep track of your different tasks.

Create a list:

  1. On your computer, go to Gmail and login to your pilot account.
  2. On the right, click Tasks.
  3. At the top, click the Down arrow.
  4. Click Create a new list.
  5. Enter a name.
  6. Click OK.

Switch between lists:

  1. On the right, click Tasks.
  2. At the top, click the Down arrow.
  3. Click the list you want.

Move a task to a different list:

  1. On the right, click Tasks.
  2. Click the task you want to move. Then, click Edit.
  3. Click the list name.
  4. Choose a list.

When you complete a task, it will only appear at the bottom of the list it was on under Completed. This means that creating a list for your tasks is a great way to view and track progress for different projects within your work day.
