Google’s latest update to its Calendar app offers deeper integration with tasks. It is now much easier to view and manage overdue tasks via a new “Pending” section, which has been made available across its web and mobile versions.
This new feature comes shortly after the application received an update back in December 2021 that added an option that allows users to repeat tasks with customizable rules and conditions. It was a move that would potentially offer better productivity tracking and management.
Google Calendar has come a long way since its first inception. It has constantly been receiving updates through the years. These incremental additions all aim to help users boost the efficiency and quality of their work and productivity—some of which might have gone unnoticed to this day.
The new Pending section will appear as a drop-down menu that will highlight the number of overdue tasks that you might have missed or overlooked over a 30-day period. It details the date it was created and when it was originally due. From there, you can take immediate action from within the app, including editing the task condition or marking it as complete.
This update comes as a small but thoughtful one that adds more utility to the already quite robust Google Calendar. Considering millions of people use this particular app on a daily basis for work and general productivity, it’s a win-win scenario for everyone. It’s already available via the web app, while Android and iOS users can expect it on February 17 and March 1, respectively.
