The Calendar allows you to dismiss tasks after completion.
XDA developers tried out a manual integration on version 2019.4.7.2-284533606 release of the Google Calendar and it resulted out that the app has a new task button.
According to the developers, the tasks allows to quickly add task the same way you add a goal.
