App of the week: TasksBoard, a great addition to Google Tasks

This time, in our App of the Week section, we will not discuss an Android app, but a desktop app called TasksBoard. This app works in conjunction with Google Tasks.

Google Tasks

Google Tasks is an Android app where you can keep track of your tasks. You can find Google Tasks on your laptop in the side menu of Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides and Google Drawings. The TasksBoard desktop app claims to be able to provide a better overview and that’s right. I explain why this is so. Step one is to install the app on your PC, laptop or Chromebook.

  • Go to Tasksboards
  • Give TasksBoard access to your Google Drive files and folders, Google Tasks and your Google account

Full screen view allows you to manage all your lists and tasks in one big Kanban board as seen below. Kanban is a method to provide insight into processes and tasks with the ultimate aim of making the entire process more efficient. This is done by visualizing each task for the stakeholders on a Kanban board. You may know it from Trello or Asana.

Additional features and Tasksboard Premium

Tasksboard also comes with some extra features such as exporting to Google Sheets, sorting the items in the lists, sharing lists and tasks, and adding colors to lists. You can also drag and drop tasks from one list to another and sort them again. Tasksboard regularly releases new features and is active on various social media to answer questions. You do need a premium account for a number of functions, for example labels. Such an account costs $ 5.99 per month or $ 39.99 per year. A business account is also possible.

All in all, Tasksboard is a great addition to Google Tasks in the side menu of the aforementioned Google apps. You immediately see at a glance what you can get started with, which tasks you still have to divide, and which tasks have already been completed.

Google Tasks: Plan your tasks.  Achieve your goals.
