Add To Do List Tasks To Your Calendar

Mar 25, 2014 | Blog, Tips & How Tos

With this feature, just add a numerical date to a task on your to do list, and it will automatically be added to your calendar. For example, if sending in your son’s baseball registration forms is on your list of things to do in early February, just add 2/1 or 2/1/11 to the item on your list, and you’ll see it appear on your calendar on that day. It will be labeled as a TO DO item, and appear above your other appointments, without an assigned time.

To do list items with dates in the upcoming week will have the dates highlighted in yellow. If the due date comes and goes without the task being completed, the date will remain on your to do list, but will no longer be highlighted. To add the task to another date, just adjust the date in your to do list.

To help you identify who is in charge of the task, the color dot assigned to the item on the calendar will be the color of the list’s owner. With this in mind, you could keep separate to do lists for each family member, assign dates to certain items in each list, and have those items appear in the calendar, assigned to the correct person.

A couple of things to note:

  • Since these tasks will be imported to your calendar from your to do list, they can’t be edited directly in your calendar. Any editing of the item or the date will need to be done directly in the to do list.
  • Reminders can’t be added to these tasks, since they’re not appointments. If you need reminders for your tasks, you could consider adding them to your calendar as appointments.
  • If you use the send-to-phone feature for your calendar data, dated to do list items won’t be included.

We hope that you’ll find this dated to do list feature helpful in keeping your important tasks visible in your online calendar. Please let us know how you like it!
