Overall Satisfaction with Google Tasks

Google Tasks is utilized by all of our employees through our Google Suite of services. it is seamlessly integrated with many Google products, such as: Gmail, Google Calendar, etc. Although employees and I rarely use it as a stand-alone app, the ability to easily create and manage tasks and to-do lists directly within the Google ecosystem makes it widely used even if not widely counted on as the best or complete option.
  • Seamless GSuite integration
  • Simple, easy to use, not too complicated or too much going on
  • Ability to directly utilize within apps where tasks are most likely to be created (email, calendar, etc.)
  • Limited in scope and customization
  • Not really a great stand-alone app for use with ioS so lack of integration with iphone makes it clunky and not very often used when not as desktop
  • Support and helpdesk very limited like many of Google products
  • Seamless integration with Gsuite products makes it an easy application to use for all
  • Built into G suite products, it's free with no hidden costs
  • Simple interface doesn't complicate things too much and allow us to become slaves to building lists rather than executing the tasks on those lists.
  • Increased efficiency
  • Reduced costs
  • Enhanced project management and deliverable-tracking
Google Tasks is not necessarily better than its competitors and certainly not as robust or complex as most to-do applications and platforms available in the market, but because it is automatically integrated into G Suite services--our primary technology interface--this free option has precluded us from needing to explore other tools that are often "better" but not as intuitive when so much time and focus is already spent within the Google ecosystem.

Would you buy Google Tasks again?


Google Tasks is perfect for jotting down quick reminders and deliverables when reading through emails or creating calendar events. Because it can be found directly within those apps in a sidebar, it is easy to directly create to-do lists and items from an actual email or event reminder. This makes it an easy to use application though when it comes to tracking and differentiating longer-term and more complex tasks, it is not capable of being used in a more rigorous, robust, and collaborative manner.
