Creating Calendar Tasks
Tasks in Calendar are to-do lists of objectives, such as reports and assignments. You can assign due dates to tasks, but they do not require definite beginning and end times. Tasks display in the Task section of your Calendar account.
When creating tasks, you must complete the Task field. All other fields are optional.
To Create Tasks
- Log in to your Calendar account.
- Click Add Task.
- Enter a name for your task in the Task field.
- Go to any of the following tabs, complete any fields you want, and then click Save.
Details are additional information about the task you want to track in Calendar.
- Priority — Select the task's priority.
- Percent Complete — Select the percentage of the task that has been completed.
- Start and End — Select when the event begins and ends.
NOTE: You must select Enable Due Date to select an End time.

Sharing a task lets other Calendar users see it in their Tasks section. You can assign one of three permissions:
- Admin — Other users can modify all of a task's settings.
- Read — Other users cannot modify any of a task's settings.

To change users' permissions, select their new permissions, and then click Save.
To remove users' access, click Delete next to their name.
Attachments let you share files with an event's attendees.
