Link to Tasks and Focus Your Attention with the New Task Overview

Today we're excited to launch another highly-requested feature in GQueues - viewing and linking to individual tasks with the new Task Overview.

The Task Overview lets you view and manage an individual task and its subtasks without the other tasks in the queue. It's accessible from regular queues, Smart Queues and search results, so you can focus on a specific task no matter where you are coming from. Change task properties, re-order subtasks and even show archived subtasks inline with this new view. You can also easily navigate up a level in your task hierarchy with the Up button, or jump to the containing queue by clicking the queue name.

The new Task Overview also means that every task has its own individual web address - so you can now easily link to a specific task if you want to reference it from another task.

Likewise, Google Calendar events on the web now also have a clickable link so you can quickly get to the associated task in GQueues.
Thanks to everyone who suggested these improvements on the forum, and we hope the new Task Overview makes organizing your work even easier!

  1. GREAT additions! I never even thought about the calendar link-back but that will actually be super helpful!

    1. Sorry, not yet. We'll look to add this in a future update to the Android app.

  3. Instead of the link can we get the Task title (that is linked) while pasting?

    1. You can use the Up Arrow button (as pictured here: https://goo.gl/Htiskc ) to go to the parent task when in the Task Overview. And your browser's back button will take you back to your previous location (task overview, or otherwise). I hope this helps!
