Earlier this year we added support for showing tasks on your calendar. It's a handy way to see your tasks alongside your calendar events, but it hasn't been possible to add, edit, complete, and postpone your tasks from within Google Calendar. That is, until now…
Introducing Remember The Milk for Google Calendar
We know that many of you are managing your tasks with Remember The Milk and your events with Google Calendar, and we thought it would be very cool if we could bring the two together. This new feature adds a small task icon to the top of each day in Google Calendar — click on the icon to:
- Review your tasks for the day
- Add new tasks and edit existing ones
- Easily complete and postpone tasks
- Review your overdue tasks
- Optionally show tasks with no due date
- See where your tasks are located on a map
See your tasks in the real world
Thanks to the magic of Google Maps, we've made a mini version of the Locations feature available in Google Calendar. The map shows where your day's tasks are located in the real world, so you can see what's nearby or on your way, and plan the best way to get things done.
As with the gadget we created for Google Personalized Homepage, this feature is available in 18 languages and will use your language setting to automatically display in your language.
Ready to add it?
Click the button below to add Remember The Milk to Google Calendar (you'll be prompted to subscribe to a special calendar which adds the small task icons to the top of each day). There are more details about this feature available in the help section.
