The gods heard our prayers! Finally tasks are here! ...

You can add a mail as a task, so when you read the list you have a link called "related email" that opens the related message.
So great. I love it!

No way this can/will replace the Remember the Milk sidebar. With RTM I can sync my tasks to my Windows Mobile phone which then syncs with Outlook hence RTM and Outlook are always in sync. I don't need yet another isolated and detached task manager...we have plenty of those all over the web already.

All exchange like feature coming slowly to Gmail.
When are they starting syncing all (task/contact/etc) to outlook/blackberry?

Adding a plugin for every sync will be a pain...

A better place to add this would be Google Calendar... When will we get tasks in our calendars?

They really should just buy rememberthemilk. After all this time this isn't exactly a very impressive implementation.

I still prefer sticky notes on an iGoogle tab. I have tried a few different options / widgets but simple text notes in a dozen or so set categories continues to work well for me.

Yeah good but I need to keep it under my eyes without having to click on the link... where is the gadget so I can add it to gmail and keep it visible? Give me the url!

I wonder how long until until this is integrated into the new (I think) calDav support so that I can sync tasks to/from mozilla lightning

Good to have tasks in GMail.

But I would personally prefer it to have in Calendar.

Andrea, when you open it, it will stay open next time you load Gmail, at least that happened during tests here...

I guess you want an URL like this one for Google/Gmail Contacts: ...

II find those stand-alone apps very useful, and I would love to get an equivalent for the tasks manager.

Any idea of URL?

Google should just buy RTM already. It's the perfect app that integrates with Gmail, Google Calendar and can sync Outlook as well...

aaargh. Great, but it is stupid it is standalone app only, why the hell they do not produce a gadget, which i could put under calendars on the left/right side and keep it always opened?

i would also like to show task under calendar, definitely when they have some due date

this is great – now can Google add Themes to Apps for Domain? we've been waiting....cripes.

[put at-character here]phillip & Jerome: no I want it to "dock" on the left column like the calendar gadget released recently. Then it would look nice. Since you can (in principle) specify any gadget with a url, it should be feasible if there was a url for that little window that pops up

Would work much better for me if this was part of the Calendar rather than Gmail ...
