For today’s lesson, we’re going to cover how to use Gmail as a task list. Gmail integrates a simple to-do list into your account. Google Tasks allows you to creates lists of items, set due dates and add notes. You can even create tasks directly from Gmail messages.

Lori, I'm also a tech writer. It appears you use SnagIt for screen captures, correct? What other tools do you use?

task list is great, but you also need it on you smart-phone for most efficiency.
For those who use Android devices there are some apps that come in handy - most of them are named "...tasks...". They allow full sync with Google account so you stay up to date with your to-do list.

Really surprised you didn't mention the Google Tasks "canvas view". This is by far the best view IMHO as it opens the tasks list in a full size window. Much better than that small popup that only shows a few tasks at once. To open canvas view, first make sure you are logged into your Google account, then open https://mail.google.com/tasks/canvas in a new tab or window. The default sort order ("My order") isn't very useful to me, so I always click on "Sort by date" as soon as I open it, then it's perfect! It seems to work in any browser (ie. it's not just a Chrome thing).
