The more you use GQueues, you may notice patterns in how you like to create your tasks, or that you’ve developed a new habit of adding tasks in the opposite position in the queue than you used to. Here are 5 ways to adjust your settings to make creating and completing tasks as quick and easy as possible for how you work.
Set a default reminder
Save time when creating new tasks by setting a default reminder that will be automatically applied to all new tasks. You can always override this by explicitly setting a different one when you create the task.
All new tasks with a date or time will get this reminder, whether created in GQueues, via email, or from the Chrome extension.
Set default task duration
To set the default length of all tasks with dates or times, go to the Calendar tab in GQueues Settings. Under Default durations choose the default length for tasks with dates only, and for tasks with dates and times.
All new tasks with a date or time will get this duration unless otherwise specified.
Add tasks at the top of the queue
When you click the Add task button in a queue, it will create the new task at the end of the queue.
If you prefer to have tasks inserted at the beginning of a queue by default, you can change this in the Queues tab of Settings. Under Insert location choose if you want to have new tasks inserted at the top or bottom of the queue.
Set checkmark action for completing tasks
By default, only top-level tasks are completed and archived simultaneously. Subtasks are completed but left on the active list crossed out.
👉 Pro Tip: You can send tasks right to the archive by holding the Shift key while marking them complete, regardless of the settings you choose here.
Add new lines in task notes
When writing notes in your tasks in GQueues, you can add new lines by holding the Shift key down and pressing the Enter key.
