So, does Google Calendar not support Category for Tasks?

Everything else seems to be working fine, except that I want to Categorize my Tasks. And then sort by Category in the Task List.

The only way I have been able to successfully Categorize a Task is if I add a local calendar just for Tasks.

But, I would prefer to use Google Tasks, just wish I could categorize them.

Any work around or solution to this? Or alternative? Would another Network based Calendar support Categories for Tasks?

The problem is that Google is too limited with regards to tasks. There is only a target (ending) date but no time, a name and a description. No starting time, no category, no attached people or document, etc. So if you add these details in Thunderbird, they are stripped as soon as Lightning connects to Google.

If you sync on another system that uses tasks, you will be able to get more.
