I have recently discovered Gmail Tasks and think that it is fabulous application! This video below goes for a minute and is a perfect introduction to the usefulness of this application. After the video I will then take you through a step by step tutorial on how to add your emails to your task list and your calendar at the same time.
1. Gmail Tasks Location
Tasks works in with your email beautifully. If action a task in an email needs to be added to you task list, you can easily add that email to your task list. Open the email, then click on Tasks. The Tasks tab can be found on the left hand side underneath your labels, as highlighted by the red arrow below.
2. Add Email To Task List
To add the email to your task list, click on more actions as highlighted by the arrow. Choose “Add to Tasks”.
3. Task List
The email will now be added to your task list and the task list will automatically appear on screen in the bottom right hand corner. Click on the arrow at the end of the email title to open up the task.

5. Tasks Added To Your Calendar
6. Tasks On Your Calendar
If you look at my Calendar below, you can see that my task has now been added to Tue 19th. You don’t have to add dates to your tasks, but I find this an effective way to keep track of tasks that have due date.
7. Mulitple Lists
Gmail Tasks is a great way to manage your to do lists!
