Go to the “Tasks” tab at the bottom of the screen and tap on the “+” symbol in the top right-hand corner. Alternatively, you can also click the “+” icon in a course section in the daily and weekly views.
Create a meaningful title for the task, and choose a representative icon from the drop-down menu to the right of the title.
Add any notes on the task (e.g. where/how to submit it, amount of time it should take to complete, etc.)
Click the button next to “important” if this is a graded/prioritized task.
You can attach documents and images from Google Drive, your desktop, and/or website links. Consider adding any rubrics or assignment descriptions the teacher has posted online, or notes related to the assignment. If you are meeting with teammates or with your teacher, you can include the video-conferencing link as well.
Add the due date by tapping the Due icon. You can also adjust the date you plan to begin working on the task by clicking the icon under “planned”.
TO ADD STEPS: Click the + button to add a “step” to the task.
Title the step (for example, if the task is to read a book, step one could be read Chapters 1-4.)
a) OPTIONAL: Click the calendar icon next to the step to add a “due date” for the task.
b) Continue adding tasks using the + icon as needed.
Once finished, you will see the task in your task view screen with its associated steps. The due date will appear in your daily, weekly, and monthly views.
In the task view screen, there is the added functionality of seeing when each “step” of a task has been completed, and what other tasks have been assigned for the day.
