  • (2019-04-07) Kim McClive-Reed: This doesn't work at all. I tried adding and removing the extension twice. I checked the permissions in Chrome settings and they were not blocked. It doesn't do anything if you click hide Application Bar, and there's no arrow for widening the task pane.
  • (2019-04-05) Rr Bb: Thank you for this wonderful extension, Can you please allow a wider task column? Currently it is only a bit wider at max, I would like to be able to make it wider as much of half the screen or even more. Many thanks.
  • (2019-04-02) Jason Deppen: Resize is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
  • (2018-11-28) Ken Aitchison: Google's lawyers apparently think that by holding an extension hostage until users approve an undisclosed new permission that isn't mentioned anywhere in the Chrome store or the extension's own page means that users who clicked Accept actually gave their consent to the permission. Yeah, good luck with that one. So what is this new permission you must blindly accept if you don't want to go back to Google's default UI? • It can read and change your data in gmail and tasks What does Google mean by that, exactly? Can the extension now inadvertently delete all my emails? Maybe not, but it sure does come across like that. None of this reflects on RightTasks itself, but I am giving it 3 stars for the moment until they at least address the permission (since I know Google definitely won't).
  • (2018-04-26) S LT: Google took this great feature off Labs, so I'm very grateful this extension exists - thank you ghinda.net!
  • (2018-04-05) Catherine Liaw: Please create a Google G Suite Add-On for this as well, so it can be used in Gmail desktop applications, not just the Chrome browser! :)
  • (2018-03-06) Corey Keller: This app is super simple and I LOVE IT!!! I'm constantly in and out of my email throughout the day and it's nice to have my to do list right there, instead of pulling up another app/window/find a piece of paper.
  • (2018-02-26) Bob White: Works as expected. Nice to have this capability.
  • (2018-01-12) Alexander Franken privé: I have the idea that it slows down gmail. When I want to change account in the upper right corner the taskbar stays in front so I can't see the accounts.
  • (2017-12-29) Michelle Foster: Good: Easy to use, and I actually like that it doesn't automatically delete the tasks once I mark them complete. Bad: Gives me a "Oops, the Tasks service is temporarily unavailable. Try again." error at least once a week though, and I have to refresh. Great tool in general. Thanks!
  • (2017-11-20) Athanasios Mouchasiris: The only one which places my Google Tasks list inside my Gmail, in the same window, visible all the time if you want it to be. Of course it replaces the small tasks window in the corner of Gmail.
  • (2017-10-21) Crowtower: A simple extension that has made the tasks window actually useful! Thanks!
  • (2017-10-17) Just what I was looking for
  • (2017-08-09) David Sangurima: simple, functional, toggle off/on task list on right side of Gmail
  • (2017-07-14) Kamala Kalpathy: I created multiple lists in my Tasks: when i move my gmail to Task: Task doesnt give me an option to select the list i want to move it to. in Gmail: there is no option to drag & drop into Tasks, or right click and select "move to"
  • (2017-05-11) Llamedo Ll.: It works great. Although I'd prefer to have some options like adjusting the width of the panel.
  • (2017-04-25) Marek Samec: Very useful, looking forward to the new features!
  • (2017-01-17) Sheri Whitten: One of the main issues I have with Google Tasks is that I would keep closing the list and never reopening, so this is very useful for keeping tasks at the forefront. I just wish it had the pop-out/pop-in options or a "maximize list" option for entering multiple tasks easily, in a large/dedicated window view.
  • (2016-11-25) It works great, but I wish they had this extension for google Inbox.
  • (2016-11-18) Paulette Risher: Love this tool. It definitely makes Tasks more useful. I am now using Tasks exclusively on my desktops and laptops. Very nice!
  • (2016-11-02) Peter Keller: works as desired.
  • (2016-10-27) Vaidyanathan: just what I needed.
  • (2016-07-06) Jeff Nailen • Wellness Coach & Trainer: This is a great little tool that works very well. It's making my life easier. Thanks for contributing this and keeping it up to date.
  • (2016-06-19) Simple and useful. LOVE that you can show or hide on demand. This really keeps my custom set-up looking clean!

    Any chance there will be a way to have a dark mode for this in the future?
  • (2019-07-22, v:3.1.0) Dave Dalebroux: Stops Scrolling
    Hi Love Righttasks, but this week it has refused to scroll. I disable Righttasks extension, then reenable it, and it works fine until I move tasks around with my shortcuts. It then loses the scrolling functionality. Worked fine for alomst a year, this issue just appeared in the past 2 weeks. I'm on a Macbook running Gmail in Chrome.
  • (2019-07-12, v:3.1.0) Rr Bb: scrolling the list of tasks does not work anymore
    Hi, A few days ago the scrolling the list of tasks stopped working - making it impossible to work with this extension. Had to disable it and use the narrow original tasks panel. I Tried to re-enable the extension several time since, but always the same problem - no scrolling available (no scrolling ruler on the right side of the screen). Can you please fix it so I can use this extension again? Many thanks.
  • (2019-04-13, v:3.1.0) sarah dorff: Suggestions
    Please make "today" the default when adding a new task in the right bar. Please let me put the tasks in one day in the order I want by moving them up and down. Please make tasks searchable.
  • (2019-04-05, v:3.1.0) Rr Bb: Wider tasks column
    Thank you for this wonderful extension, Can you please allow a wider task column? Currently it is only a bit wider at max, I would like to be able to make it wider as much of half the screen or even more. Many thanks.
