Create events from Google Docs tasks
Easily create events from Google Docs checklist tasks.
Note: You must first authorize TaskClone to access each Google Doc you want us to process.
Creating events from Google Docs checklist tasks
3 Easy steps (see example image below)
- Add events as tasks beginning with "sch: " (Case-insensitive, English only). Write the events in natural language (e.g. Meeting at 1000 State St. on Tue 2/16 at 1pm). Use "sch+: " to send to task app and calendar.
- Add hashtag + trigger tag to initiate process (e.g. #taskclone). Add anywhere on its own line. We initially configure "taskclone" as your trigger tag. You can always change your trigger tag from the Dashboard.
- Sync/Save Changes. Google Docs will sync automatically in the background, usually in less than 10 seconds.
When Google Docs Syncs > TaskClone is notified of the events, extracts them and immediately sends them Google Calendar. Google Calendar converts the natural language into an event. Typically, the event shows in 0-5 minutes.
When TaskClone is finished > it removes the trigger tag and adds Skip Codes to each task to prevent them from being cloned again.
Important! Do not edit the note again until you see the trigger tag is removed and Skip Codes added next to each task. Also, TaskClone will only process the same doc once every 2 minutes.
Note: Cloning doc titles takes priority over individual tasks which means TaskClone will not process individual tasks from a doc if the page title is being processed instead.
