Up until recently, Tasks has been a personal app where you can add your own tasks, give them due dates/times and tick them off as you go. If you don’t already use this app, you’ll see it on the right-hand side panel in most of the Google Workspace apps.
Anyway, you can now have a team task list in a Room. Here’s how it works…
Go to a ‘Room’ you are a member of
Select the ‘Tasks’ tab
In there you can
Add a task
Give it a due date and time
Assign it to someone else
Tick off tasks that have been completed
Any tasks that have been assigned to you will also appear in your own Task list. Any due dates and times will appear in your Tasks calendar (in the Google Calendar app)
Tip: If you get the Tasks mobile app, you will get a notification when a due date and time arrives.
