Google Tasks is a fairly straightforward way to organize a collection of tasks to help you keep up with everything you must get done.
You might be accustomed to apps that give you more options than Google Tasks has to offer. And on the surface, you might think Google Tasks is too simplified a feature to really be all that valuable.
Don’t be so certain. Google Tasks does have a trick up its sleeve that elevates its simplicity.
Said trick is lists. With lists you can organize your tasks into categories, so for example, you might make lists called:
- House Projects
Under each list, you would then add all the relevant tasks (and star them if you like, and even add sub-tasks). The nice thing about this is that you can select a list to only view the associated tasks. In other words, lists keep your tasks far more organized and easier to use. The result is more efficient task management.
With that said, let’s see how to add a new list to Google Tasks.
The only thing you’ll need is a Google account. Since Tasks is already a part of the Google Workspace suite, there’s nothing to install.
How to create a new List in Google Tasks
And that is all there is to using the list feature found in Google Tasks. If you’re serious about task management, and you don’t want to have to migrate to yet another tool, using lists in Google Tasks is a great way to ramp up this fairly basic tool. Give using lists a try and see if it doesn’t make Google Tasks a more complete application to meet your needs.
