Turn Tasks on or off for users

As a G Suite administrator, you can control who in your organization uses Google Tasks from their account. Just turn Tasks on or off for those people in the Google Admin console. People who have Tasks turned on can use it to begin setting up tasks from any device as part of Gmail, Calendar, and using mobile apps on Android or iOS devices. 

To control who uses Tasks in your organization

Before you begin: To turn the service on or off for certain users: Put their accounts in an organizational unit (to control access by department) or put them in an access group (to control access for users across or within departments).

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. Go to Apps and then G Suite and then Tasks.
  3. Click Service status.
  4. To turn on or off a service for everyone in your organization, click On for everyone or Off for everyone, and then click Save.

  5. To turn on or off a service only for users in an organizational unit:

    1. At the left, select the organizational unit.
    2. Select On or Off.
    3. To keep the service turned on or off even when the service is turned on or off for the parent organizational unit, click Override.
    4. If the organization's status is already Overridden, choose an option:
      • Inherit—Reverts to the same setting as its parent.
      • Save—Saves your new setting (even if the parent setting changes).

  6. To turn on a service for a set of users across or within organizational units, select an access group. For details, go to turn on a service for a group.
Changes typically take effect in minutes, but can take up to 24 hours. For details, see How changes propagate to Google services.
