2. Set a due date and time:
Once you’ve created a task or reminder, you can set a due date and time. This will help you stay on track and ensure that you complete your task or remember your reminder. You can do this by clicking on the task or reminder, and then clicking the “edit” button. From here, you can enter a due date and time.

Google Calendar can send you reminders for tasks and events. You can choose to receive reminders via email, popup notification, or SMS message. To set up reminders, click on the task or reminder, and then click the “edit” button. From here, you can choose when you want to receive reminders and how you want to receive them.
5. Mark tasks as complete:
As you complete tasks, you can mark them as complete in Google Calendar. This will help you stay organized and track your progress. To mark a task as complete, click on the task and then click the checkbox next to “completed.”
6. Sync tasks with other apps:
If you use other task management apps, such as Trello, Asana, or Todoist, you can sync your tasks with Google Calendar. This will allow you to see your tasks and reminders all in one place. To set up syncing, check the settings of your task management app.
