Great addon (can now be used simultaneously on many Thunderbird instances) Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This addon is very useful.
I use 2 computers (one at home and one at work), and the Google tasks can be synchronized easily.
(multi-computer environment wasn't supported in version 0.5.2)
**Edit: each time I launch Thunderbird, Google Task Sync cannot sync.
In the error console :
Error: Google Task Sync: Not Found
I can fix it if I clear the authentication token at next startup, but the sync issue reappears every day... Waiting for full Thunderbird 45 support!!!
Sort by title Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I manage some number of task lists and control the listing order by their title. Like below;
* inbox, 10.Projects, 11.pj/Foo, 12.pj/Bar, ...
This trick works well in Gmail, but Google Tasks Sync addon doesn't care. So, I tried a little remodeling based on 0.5.2. Thank you.
This remodeling has been patched on 0.5.3. Thank you :-)
Super, but... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I could not read completely all other statements - hope not to produce doubles.
But it would be great great having the opportunity to create more than only one task account. As is the case with Android apps such as Gtasks or ACalendar.
Should be a 2nd drop down to switch between the accounts, herein then between the lists.
Purpose: My wife and I use 3 Google accounts for mail/contacts/calendar/tasks - her own, my own, and a mutual one. Actually we use lists in the mutual account (her, mine, ours). With switchable accounts however we have the additional option to make notes and tasks in a "really own" list that must not be accessible to the other one.
5 star anyway, but perhaps?
Very good little add-on Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Performs very well his office. Unfortunately limited by the limited function of Google Task. I have a dream: Ligthning tasks with its many features, one can share and free!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.2).
Love this- but am stuck! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I love this app, but when I switched what Google account I was using with it, the app didn't switch, and I'm not sure how to tell it that I switched the account!
I'd love a contact address for this kind of trouble shooting, because I'm sure it's something stupid that I've just forgotten!
Give me a break. You could have found the solution by just scrolling down the first page of reviews or looking around in Thunderbird for a bit.
To switch accounts, go to the add-on's options under Tools -> Add-ons and clear local data and authentication tokens.
Great add-on, only need some modification Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's the best add-on available to sync tasks with Google.
1) Add sort by name
2) Adding the task with Enter key in the "New Task" window
3) Canceling the task with Escape key in the "New Task" window
4) Add "Sync Interval", E.g. sync with Google every 5 minutes or every 3 minutes
Good so far Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I've only just installed it but at least it works straight away with a minimum of set up.
I'm using it with TB 38.5.1 and integrated Lightning 188.8.131.52
It would be nice to be able to change the default task list which is not the one I mainly use.
Other than that it works nicely and simply. Integrates in layout and syncs.
Two things need changing Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I am not yet ready to do a full review, as I just started using the add-on. It does seem to be working well, but two things prevent me from going further.
First, the link to documentation still points to a Google Code site. I believe Google has discontinued this service, or perhaps restricts access. Either way, I cannot read the documentation and suggest moving it to a more public place.
Second, I have two Google calendars with names that start with "Personal." "Personal - Long Term" has birthdays, anniversaries, dates for memorials for dead friends &amp;amp; relatives, etc. "Personal - Short Term" has doctor appointments, scheduled car services, meetings with friends, parties, etc. But the drop-down menu in the add-on only shows one choice, "Personal." Since the calendar names are legal for Google Calendar, this seems to be a bug that should be fixed.
I'd also like to be able to specify a time for a task. (E.g., to make a phone call at 11 AM.)
P.S. I would have written to the developer directly, but I cannot find an email address.
P.P.S. Regarding XtremeVision's comment about auto-sync and Tomasz's reply, I suggest always syncing when a new task is added and graying out the sync icon until the user changes a task's content. (E.g., the way LibreOffice grays out the save button after a file has been saved.) Since this is a two-way sync, there might also be an option to activate the icon/button at specific intervals.
The Google Code site never hosted any documentation, just the source code (which is available right here on the Mozilla add-ons site) and an issue tracker, which mostly fell into disuse long before Google Code was shut down, as I stopped actively maintaining the add-on. For the record, I am unaware of any forks, and no-one ever expressed interest in taking over the original project either, so any updates or bug fixes are unlikely.
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Very good so far. Could prove exactly what I need since I have a home pc, laptop and office pc and all of them I have thunderbird, so I need my tasks synced across all devices.
The only thing I don't see is an auto-sync feature. I created a few tasks on the laptop, but they were not synced on my office pc, until I manually pressed the sync button. Would be nice to have auto-sync every couple of seconds.
Auto-sync at intervals was removed a long time ago and isn't coming back because it consumed copious amounts of API quota.
Awesome Addon! ("Backup viewer" not working) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great add-on, I use it a lot - Thank you very much for this helpful tool!
Still there might be a little bug with the backups: I like the idea that it is backing up my task list to prevent the accidental deleting of tasks. But at the moment for me the backup viewer is not working. I can find the backups manually under “AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\XXX.default\google_tasks_sync\backup” but then in the “Backup viewer” I can only see the “Snapshots” but there is nothing to select under “Tasklist or Task”. I experience this problem on two different laptops with different configurations. Maybe this issue could be fixed in the next release?
Thanks again for this great add-on!
Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
One of my most used and beloved add-ons for Thunderbird. .
Convenient to have at hand for shoppinglists, adding a quick note/post of "must-not-forget-that-item" etc. That way my grocery- and shoppinglists fills up pretty quickly and always stay in sync with my mobile unit (I use "Things To Do" from MoaiApps for Android). Syncs back and forth, lists always updated and handy everywhere, even in Thunderbird thanks to "Google Task Sync".
The developer has done a great job, works flawlessly! Thanks very much, couldn't live without it. I never forget anything at the grocery store nowadays.
Very good, but have minor bugs Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Very good extension. Works as should. The only bug that I have seen is associated with date - it is not loaded from the task entry, but it displays previously set date.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.2).
Google Code got shut down, but the source is still available right here on AMO. Scroll down to version information to browse it online, or just download the installation package, which itself contains all of the code, as none of it is compiled, minified or otherwise obfuscated.

Hi. Great Plug-In. I was able to easily install it and start using it right away. The only thing I am not understanding is how can you show mutliple taks from multiple accounts. For example, if I have 2 gmail accounts and have tasks in both of them then how do I add the second gmail account tasks?
Nice AddOn with sometimes a little bug Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is a very nice AddOn for TB but I have a problem with the synconisation. When I logged into my google tasks account for the first time, the AddOn works fine. But when I restart TB there is a problem with the syncronisation and the interface shows the following message: "Initializing...". So the AddOn isn´t useful for me at the moment.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.2).
Feature Request ? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The addon works just fine. It is perfect !
The only request is when you have multiple lists, it could be a great idea to have a generic "all" list in order to be able to see all the tasks of all lists (usefull to see which tasks have to be completed thrue the day).
Seems to work fine Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I installed this and it appears to work fine with the latest version of Thunderbird.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1).
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Would be a 5-star add-on if it allowed users to create folders, too.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1).
It stopped working Rated 3 out of 5 stars
When I updated Thunderbird to 31.2.0, it stopped working.

This is a great addon and I use it a lot - or I did. When Thunderbird updated to 31.2.0 it promptly stopped working and it keeps giving errors.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1).
Problem if double sync Rated 3 out of 5 stars
nice app, but a major problem during my tests :
if I am offline on thunderbird and I add a task, and if during that time, I add another task directly from thunderbird, he make a merge of the two, and not two separate tasks. ==> we cannot work with two device at the same time if they are not syncing directly...
