There are lots of ways to create tasks in the mobile app. We go over all of them here so you can figure out what works best for you:
Add a new task
Tap the plus (+) button to add a new task at any time.
If you are in a specific queue, the task will be added to that queue. Otherwise the task will be added to your Inbox.
Confirm your task name and tap Create
Tap the Edit task... button to specify the task details or change the queue.
Add a repeating task
To create a repeating task edit the task and tap the Repetition field.
Choose the repetition pattern desired and tap Set.
Now your task is set to repeat according to the pattern.
Whenever you complete a repeating task a new instance will be generated based on the pattern.
Add a subtask to an existing task
From the task list long-tap the task and choose Add subtask from the popup menu.
Or from the task details you can tap the top menu and choose Add subtask.
Enter the details for the subtask and save it. The number of subtasks will now appear on the task which you can tap to view the list of subtasks.
Make an existing task a subtask
To make an existing task a subtask, position the task underneath the desired parent task, then long-tap the task and choose Make subtask from the popup menu.
Make an existing subtask a standalone task
To make an existing subtask a top-level task, long-tap it and choose Make supertask.
Add tasks using voice input
When adding a new task tap the microphone to speak your task instead of typing.
When finished speaking the text will appear which you can edit if needed.
Quick add syntax can be used to enter task details inline.
Add tasks from Gmail
You can turn emails into tasks from within your Gmail app on your mobile device. While viewing the email you'd like to associate with a task, scroll to the bottom of the email and tap the GQueues icon in the Available Add-ons section.
To view the Add-on in full-screen mode tap the header bar and it will expand.
Set the details for the task as desired.
Tap the Create Task button to create the task.
Please Note: Google hasn't updated the tablet Gmail app to include add-ons. Until they release an update that will allow users to access their add-ons while using their tablet, GQueues users can only access the Google Workspace Add-on on the web and the Android app.
Add tasks from other apps
You can create a task from any app that has the Share menu item.
For instance, if you're using the YouTube app and want to automatically create a task with a link to the video to watch later, choose Share and select GQueues.
A new task will be created with a link to the video so you can return to watch it later.
