Google Calendar Gets Tasks

Sort of. I read this over on Ajaxian yesterday but didn’t get a chance to check it out until this morning. The folks over at Remember The Milk have taken notice of the fact that a great number of their users are using Google Calendar to keep track of events, while continuing to use Remember The Milk for daily tasks. So, the fine people at Remember The Milk have come out with 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

This exciting for me. I’ve been waiting on Google to add official tasks to Google Calendar, but this will suffice. Actually, I like this because I really enjoy using Remember The Milk, and would like to continue using it. Looks like I’ll be able to keep using it indefinitely now that RTM has support for Google Calendar. Yay!!
