I have tried a variety of notebooks, apps, and software over the years to keep track of my to-do lists. So far, I've had the most success with the Reminders app on my Macbook. But this year I decided to revisit Google Tasks. Tasks is part of our Google Apps accounts, and I tried Tasks for a while when we first went to Google. I didn't like the fact that I only saw my Tasks list when I viewed my Google Calendar.
However, now that we're using Gmail, I can keep my Tasks in view on that screen, and it's working out much better for me. I'm in and out of my Gmail constantly!
To launch Google Tasks:
1. Open Gmail in your browser and click the little arrow to the right of Mail in the upper left. Click Tasks.
