Google Reminders Moving to Tasks


Starting on May 22, 2023,  Reminders will be moving to Google Tasks.  Currently, Reminders are created and managed within the Calendar application. After May 22nd, all Reminders in your Google Calendar will be automatically moved to Tasks. This product change by Google will allow all users to have their reminders and other "to-dos" in one place. 

What is Happening?

For Nazareth Google users: Starting on May 22, 2023, any Calendar Reminders will begin to automatically migrate to Tasks for users that have not already migrated.

If you want to migrate your Reminders prior to May 22nd, you will see a prompt in Calendar to move reminders to Tasks beginning on April 12, 2023.

Why is it Important?

Once the migration is complete, you’ll be able to view and manage all of your to-do items and reminders in one place: Tasks. You’ll be able to leverage features in Tasks such as organizing to-dos with multiple lists and adding descriptions for extra organization. Tasks can be accessed on the web within Google Workspace apps like Gmail, Calendar, and Docs, making it easy to create tasks without the need to switch tabs or apps.

How Do I Access Google Tasks?

  1. Go to Gmail, Calendar, Drive, or a file in Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides.
  2. Find the Tasks app located in the side panel on the right side of the screen
  3. Important: If you can't see Tasks app, click the arrow in the bottom right of the screen to expand the side panel.
  4. Click the Tasks icon


Additional Details

Reminders created in Keep will not be migrated to Tasks — they will still be available in Keep, but they will no longer be displayed in Google Calendar once the migration is complete.
