Share and Sync your Google Task List with Others

Google Tasks is one handy tool which I use often to create a quick to-do list. It’s simple, efficient and easy to use. What makes it even more powerful is that they are integrated with other Google services like Gmail, Calendar and iGoogle.

It certainly does help me a lot in keeping things organized and with features like directly adding your Gmail emails to task list for follow ups (Press Shift + T) makes it one indispensable tool. If you had not yet explored this tool,launch it by clicking on Gmail(Top left corner) ->Tasks.

The tool currently supports to share your task list via emails. But in most case it’s not sufficient, wouldn’t it be great if there is a way to allow others to update your Task List so that the list always remains fresh and updated. If you are working in team or if there are more than one person managing the list then it becomes a must have feature.

Consider these situations:
  • Your project manager has created a to-do list in his account and requires the list to be updated by team members as and when they complete the tasks.
  • You are a homemaker and have created a list of things to be bought for this week. Your husband has promised to get some of the things while he is back from office and your maiden has gone out to get few others. So how would you ensure that the list is synced up and is up-to-date?
So, I have come up with an app to address this problem and it will help you in getting this missing feature.

Introducing Shared Google Tasks:

This app will help you share and sync your Google task list with others. You can even share your list with anonymous users who don’t have Google account who can update the tasks and the data will instantly be reflected in your account.


1. The sync up takes place instantly. There is no polling.
2. Any user with or without Google account can update the list.
3. You can add, edit, mark as completed or pending and delete any tasks.
4. Lesser the chance

It works fine for us!
