The kind folk at Google thought about it and they decided it’s not enough that we spend our lives into our emails and they added a Task list. This feature is most welcomed, at least for guys like me that forget things or, that have a hard time schedule things all around. Now, you can just add things to do into your Tasks feature or convert emails into tasks easily and just wait for the ‘event’ to pop-up into your face.
To enable this feature, go to the Settings menu and under the Labs section, you will find the Tasks feature. Just enable it, apply and you will notice it below your Contacts, on the left sidebar. You can also add tasks using keyboard shortcuts easily or just hit the plus button.
