Queues give you an extra organizational level to manage your tasks. Here’s how to get the most out of them.

Get the most out of queues

Category or queue?

Knowing when to create a new queue versus a new category is key to keeping an organized workspace in GQueues. Categories should be broad while queues are more specialized. All your tasks live within queues, so think about how you need to group your tasks when creating a new queue.

If you have a side hustle as a fitness instructor, create a category with a queue for your part-time work at the local gym and another for your burgeoning YouTube channel.

The key is to separate your tasks in a way that you’ll easily be able to know where to put an action item and find the information you need to act on it later.

Set a default queue

If you have a queue you look at on a regular basis, set it as default. Then it will be the first queue you see whenever you open GQueues.

To set a queue as default, select Set as default from the queue dropdown menu in the left-hand panel.

👉 Pro Tip: You can also create a browser bookmark when viewing any queue. So if you have more than one you want to be able to jump to right when you open GQueues, you can create different bookmarks for each of those queues.

Use bookmarks so your most-used queues have another place for easy access

Add notes to a queue

You can add notes to the queue as a whole, in addition to its tasks.

Use the Queue Info Panel to add an overarching goal for the queue, information that will be relevant to all tasks within it, or give colleagues new to a project some background information.
