What is the best task management app integrated with calendar apps or with its own calendar?

I'm considering to use Things3, but it seems that the calendar feature is rather weak. Any Mac app to recommend?

    I highly recommend Todoist and their recent Google Calendar Integration. You can see your tasks in Todoist but also in Google Calendar(There is also a iCal link feature) It synchronizes on both sides. I am using it and I am really happy with the product ๐Ÿ™

    Todoist has recently introduced sync feature with Google Calendar. It is a two way sync which is unique and isn't found in most of the apps.

    Finally. To-do lists are an absolute waste of time, creating little but anxiety. Scheduling tasks is the way to get them done. The question remains of course, why use Todoist in the first place, when scheduling can be done within the calendar environment.

    It has a calendar view for every project/collection you create. A 'global calendar' has also just been released - you can connect multiple collections to it so you can see tasks and events from multiple projects in one place. A direct integration with other calendar apps like Google Calendar is on the way too!

    For an overall view of your projects, Zenkit gets it done. It seamlessly adds a calendar to other popular workflows: Lists, calendars, mind maps, tables, etc.
    • Using Zenkit for a few months now and can't see myself going back to my old tool. The team has done a phenominal job of building an application that addresses the need of power users, light users, and everything in between.

      I searched for that so long. Try it out, it's easy and free. I tried so many other apps and they didnt have these functions or didnt do it good. This is a better google calendar generally.

    • This is exactly how a tasks/calendar should work. I have been searching for almost a year to find the right task software. Plan nailed it, I hope they continue to grow and take over the market.

    Things 3.0

    I find the combination of Things and Fantastical 2 to be so far better than any single app solution.
    I like Things3 a lot, itยดs my current task manager. But: While you can display calendar events in the app, you cannot edit them and can not change the app that opens when you click the event.

      I've been a Things user since 2007. Within the last couple of years Things 2.0 started to feel stale, and I found myself exploring other alternatives. Yet I could never end up replacing it.

      Thankfully, Things 3.0 comes out of nowhere with a completely redesigned experience that is fast, beautiful and it allows you to do everything with speed โ€” the perfect recipe for a todo app.

      This app feels like it belongs on iOS 11 even though it was launched weeks before the iOS 11 beta was announced. It's that good!

      You still can't share tasks with others, but the great experience easily out weights that need.

      I've used Things since 2010. It's the app I couldn't live without. To use it well, familiarize yourself with David Allen's "Getting Things Done" methodology.

    Goals in Google Calendar

    A calendar that finds time for your daily goals

    If you're using Google Calendar, it already has a task management system integrated inside the web app. They're now called goals, as they are more flexible, and placed intelligently in your calendar at a time you're likely to be able to complete the task.
    • Francis Wade
      Francis WadeFramework Consulting

      This feature of Google Calendar (an app I use everyday) is a mistaken attempt to solve a real problem. Users want to be able to put more tasks in their calendar but the current problem is one of basic task optimization, not learning over time. In other words, the challenge is how to manage a lot of tasks via their attributes, which this feature does a poor job doing. Instead, it takes a simplified version of what a task is so that it can compare them over time. Instead, tasks are already complex from their moment of inception, so making them simplified so a program can "understand" them is a step in the wrong direction.

      What users want to do is retain the complexity, and get help in optimizing their placement in their calendar. This includes even the way the task is expressed in writing.

      Perhaps one day, machine learning may help, but it will only come long after the more basic question of optimization has been answered by the right combination of calendar app and human habits.

      All in all, this is a great app for basic habit tracking & management. There's definitely a few kinks to work out though & I really wish that Google had a more robust system for tasks.

    This one is not just a task manager, it's a personal assistant in your pocket. It reminds you of things you have to do with a daily "any.do-moment" and it fits great into the "Get things Done"-concept.

    My favorite so far is 2Do. The calendar portion could be better visually, but it does integrate with your own calendars. The task/ project portion is the best I've found for me personally. Very customizable, and can be as simple or as complex as you need.
    If work on Apple devices, and have set up 2Do configured to use reminders (instead of Dropbox) for sync, your tasks are displayed (and editable) in your calendar app. Best integration i have seen so far.

    Real-time team messenger tool

    Flock is a free chat app available on Mac and all other platforms as well. It has an inbuilt meeting scheduler app which gathers convenient time slot from all attendees, You can also book meeting rooms using the app. Schedule your day and leave it up to Flock to remind you about it. Cancel or reschedule meetings from Flock's UI. Pretty cool that way.

      I love that flock is stable, easy to use and has a good base of application integrations. I typically miss flowdock, but the overall collaborative experience is better than slack. Been using a little over 6 mos.- couldn't pick that though

  14. Asana is hands-down the best (read: most intuitive, flexible, and reliable) task management app. I use it for everything from large, complex customer implementation roadmaps to managing my packing list for a backpacking trip over the weekend. It has it's own calendar functionality and can also tie into Google Calendar. The mobile app is great and everything syncs seamlessly.

    It's one of the few apps which goes into your calendar and dynamically figures out the next task you should be working on, while reconfiguring and optimizing all the entries. A huge time-saver.
