In removing the 'Tags' tab last week, we've made room to give Insightly tasks a tab all of their own. We're going to make some improvements to the task interface in the coming weeks, but this was the first step.
We also added the ability to subscribe to your Insightly Tasks from within Google Calendar, by exposing your task list as an iCalendar feed. Google makes it easy to subscribe to iCalendar feeds, and it refreshes the data every few hours. Other software such as Apple iCal, Microsoft Outlook, and Mozilla Calendar also support subscriptions from an iCalendar feed.
You can find instructions on how to add your Insightly Tasks to Google Calendar from within Insightly at http://googleapps.insight.ly/Tasks/iCal
Google Calendar has very good notification options for task items, as you can receive notification by email message, popup window, or even by SMS message on your mobile phone. We're looking to turn off Insightly's own email reminder notifications for tasks in the coming weeks so as not to double up with Google's more flexible notification service.
