You can now set tasks that run regularly using the Tasks app next to Google Calendar
You can create, manage, and view tasks on the go on any device. Tasks created from your desktop in Gmail and Google Calendar can be managed on your mobile phone or tablet. And to make it easier for you to complete a task, you can break each task down into subtasks so you can take smaller bites of the project so you can complete it faster. And as your work progresses on a task, you can edit it. Tasks can be created from an email in the Gmail app and traced back to the source gmail it came from.
You can now set tasks to run on a recurring basis right from the Google Tasks app
Putting a due date on each task can help you finish a project quickly, Google says. However, with such pressure placed on you to complete a task by the due date, you might find yourself drenched in sweat as the pressure builds. You can also organize your tasks by date and receive reminders as if you didn’t pressure yourself enough.
Google continues to work on an app to improve it
After choosing the settings, click Done. Yes, that may seem like a lot of work, but there’s a new shortcut that you can use right from the Google Task app. Open the app and you should see your tasks under the “My Tasks” heading. Tap the date next to the calendar icon. That brings up a little pop-up box with a calendar. At the bottom of the box is an icon of a clock and below that there is a two arrow icon next to a box that says “Repeat.”
When you tap Repeat, you’ll get a mini-custom replay page that lets you choose how often you want this task to repeat, the date and time you want the task to start, and the date and time you want it to stop. You can even add subtasks from this menu.
