Overall Satisfaction with Google Tasks

On the daily Tasks is used to stay organized on daily to-dos that pertain to all kinds of workloads. We lean on the service to plan our day and prioritize the work that needs to get done. By using Tasks we are able to structure our day-to-day and ensure we're being productive with our time and energy. Without Tasks, we'd be more prone to wasting valuable time.
  • Time management: Being automatically reminded of recurring tasks means we are less likely to forget.
  • Ensuring project dependencies are noted and addressed.
  • Task nesting: We can build a task tree easily and view it from within most of Google's apps.
  • Reminders: Right now one must manually check their tasks pane to see what needs to be done. When things get busy we may forget to check this.
  • Linking to docs inside Drive would be much appreciated as we often have to perform updates inside project-related files.
  • Task sharing is nonexistent. It would be good if we can collaborate with others on larger tasks and see what still needs to be done in the context of larger projects.
  • Fast access
  • Simple interface, improve efficiency.
  • Easy to find and use.
  • We now spend less time looking for things to do and instead spend more time knocking out tasks.
  • We have become more organized and intentional with our time.
  • It's a simple solution to staying on track with project deadlines.
Tasks is an extremely slimmed-down version of something like Teamwork. The similarities stop at having checkboxes and deadlines. The benefit of tasks is it's included in your normal Google subscription at no additional cost. With that comes way less functionality, but that's expected since Teamwork is designed as a full project and task management solution. Overall for tracking simple things day to day, Tasks works just fine.

Tasks are great if you're needing a tool to keep track of what you need to get done and when. Being able to create task lists and create sub-tasks gives enough flexibility to organize your day. The ability to access the tasks pane from almost any Google app is very handy since it means one doesn't have to leave what they are doing just to add an item or check off a completed task.
