Google calendar

Using a calendar like Google Calendar to view tasks and their due dates for your projects is a great way to view tasks which need your attention on any given day.

It is a great get way to get organized and prioritize your project work and not miss deadlines. Google Calendar is one of the most popular and versatile calendars in the market today.

It is trusted and used by millions of people all over the world.

A great benefit of Google calendar is that lets you get email and SMS notification before a task is due. You can set the exact time you would like to get notifications.  

That is why we have integrated our project management application with Google Calendar.

Even though we will have our own calendar soon,  we will always have google integration in our project management application and other application we will do in the future.

You can choose to sync your task management page in Binfire with Google calendar.

To do so, click on the three-dot (…) icon on top of the task list and choose sync with Google Calendar.

You are taken to Google pages to give permission for syncing your tasks with Google calendar. After you give permissions all you task’s dues dates show on your Google Calendar.

Please note you need a google account to be able to do this.   

When tasks have been synced with calendar all tasks and their due dates are shown on the calendar as horizontal bars.

As a side benefit, Google enables you to get reminders/notifications from the calendar when tasks are due soon. This works on all devices that you have Google applications running (PC, smartphones, and tablets). You can set the app calendar to send you notification any time prior the task’s due date. This is a great feature which makes tracking your tasks easier and eliminates forgetting your tasks or missing deadlines.
