Add new tasks within Google Calendar
Activate Calendar syncing to use the Workspace Add-on
Before you can get started using the GQueues for Google Workspace Add-on in Google Calendar, make sure to activate Calendar syncing from GQueues to get full functionality within Google Calendar.
Create tasks with the Workspace Add-on
The Google Workspace Add-on makes working with complex tasks from your Calendar that much easier. You can view assignments, comments, tags, subtasks, and recurrences right from the Calendar. That means you can get it all done from one place.
Just click the blue Q icon from the sidebar on the right side of your screen to open the Workspace sidebar.
The first time you use the Add-on, you’ll be asked to sign in.
Click Create New Task to begin creating your task.
Your default queue is the Inbox. With the Workspace Add-on, you can change this by opening the dropdown menu and choosing which queue you want to create the task in.
After choosing the queue, create your task directly from the sidebar. Once the task is created, give it a few seconds to sync before it appears on your calendar.
View and edit tasks with the Workspace Add-on
With the Workspace Add-on, you can view full task details by first opening the Add-on by clicking the blue Q from the sidebar, and then clicking on the calendar event of that task. You will see the event display in the calendar as well as on the sidebar on the right-hand side of your screen.
If you do want to view the task in GQueues, you can simply follow the link from the Add-on.
Two-way syncing means you can make changes to tasks from your calendar OR from GQueues and they will stay up-to-date in real-time, saving you precious clicks.
Speaking of saving clicks, you can make edits to your task directly from the Add-on sidebar.
Add comments, view subtasks, assign to your team members, write notes, add tags, change the date, time, reminders, and task duration.
Complete tasks from Google Calendar with the Workspace Add-on
Once the Workspace Add-on is enabled you can also mark tasks complete from Google Calendar!
Your tasks still conveniently appear as events in your Calendar, and now they display from the Add-on with a checkbox so that you can easily mark things complete as you go through your day.
Simply check the box from the Workspace Add-on to complete your task.
The GQueues for Google Workspace Add-on is an essential tool for minimizing the steps you need to take to create and manage your projects, saving you valuable time. When you use the Workspace Add-on with Google Calendar, keeping up with your life becomes much simpler, and that’s what really matters.
