Using Apple Mail with todoist


Is it possible to add email as tasks when I use Apple's mail client?

In other todo products I have been able to do this by just dragging the email over the application adn was hoping this was possible with Todoist as well.

Hello Phil,

There are two ways to add emails as tasks to Todoist:
1. Using our browser or email client plugins and linking the message to Todoist - this won't be possible due to the lack of an Apple Mail plugin.
2. Forwarding a message to a Todoist project which will add it as a task.

Please refer to our blog post for a full explanation of the advantages of both options: http://todoist.com/blog/2013/01/zero-inbox-policy-with-todoist/

We may consider creating an Apple Mail plugin in the future and you're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/788/

Best regards,

This is a very valuable feature - much preferred over forwarding the email to Todoist.

Are there plans to add this? It will be necessary to get my boss on board to sign up.

This is one of the things preventing me from really trying out Todoist. I'd even be satisfied with some AppleScript support, so I could create my own implementation. I'll stick with OmniFocus for now.

Hopefully this will change in the future, as there are aspects of Todoist that I really like.
