Emailing to todoist
Hello, how do send an email to a todoist project?
If you click on the "gear" icon beside a Project name, and choose "Email tasks to this project" it will give you the email address to which you can email new tasks to.
Make sure the email you are going to use is in the list of accepted addresses at the bottom of the same pop-up.
Sorry, I cannot found the "Email tasks to this project" button under "gear", what happen?
When you click on a project, and have your list of tasks, at the top right corner beside the project name is the gear icon. This will give you the "Email tasks to this project" See image.
Please let me know if this is not possible for you. If you aren't able to do this, which one of our plugins/apps are you using, or are you accessing the website?
Sorry, I just can see the first 3 item, "sort by date","sort by priority" and "sort by name" after click the gear.
I use the application fro Mac.Version 2.5 (115)
BTW, from the Website, i can see the same as http://i.imgur.com/kxFrCCj.jpg.
Please click on the "Show projects" link at the top and then right-click on the name of a project. You will find the "Email tasks to this project" link in this menu. If you don't see it, try to log out and back into the app.
Thanks David and Brendon. Next question: What if I want to add a reminder to the email I'm sending. So I'll Bcc to the project when I send the email and I want to set a follow up reminder for say 3 days. How would I do that?
Love the new upgrade by the way.
You can add <remind today at 2pm> for example within the subject line of the email.
Two questions following your response.
1. I wouldn't want clients to see the subject line saying remind XX so can I put that in the Bcc field?
2. Can I set a reminder to recur for eg every 3 hours. I couldn't see the syntax for that and I tried every 3 hours and it prompted for a date requirement.
When you add <remind today at 2pm> it will not show up within the task name, it will get removed but add that reminder to the task.
And there are no reminders that are like that, you can set a reminder for a one time event. Though, you can add many to one task.
Hi Brendon, I may not have been clear on my first question.
Let's pretend I'm send you some sales information and I want to follow it up tomorrow and set a reminder. If I put <tom at 3pm> next to the subject in the email, won't the customer see that?
or would I put <tom at 3pm> in the Bcc field after the todoist project email address.
I'm sending an email from outlook to be clear.
Sending this email to the Project address, would create a task, are you saying you are emailing another person's Todoist Project email address?
If you are trying to email someone, but also bcc the Todoist project, I do not believe this would work at all. If it does, I don't believe they would see it (if entered in the bcc area).
Yes, its often more efficient to create a task as your emailing something to a customer. I've tested the Bcc field and it indeed works (nice). I'll do some more testing on the reminder within the bcc field.
You mentioned a fix was on the way for the situation when emails are added as a task but then unable to be called up once the email is moved to another subfolder, preventing it from being openend from TODOIST. Any update?
We are still working on it, had more troubles then we thought. It shouldn't be much longer now.
Is it possible to send a task to the main inbox (instead to a project)?
Yes, there's a way to do that. Just refer to this link for more details https://todoist.com/Help/viewEmailTasks?from_premium=1
Thanks for your help.
I've checked the link and it explains how to send an email to a project, but not to the main inbox that appear at the top of the left menu
Could you help me please?
Sure. :-) Just follow the steps below or refer to the link that I have included for you.
1. Go to the inbox
2. Click the icon on the upper right corner (the one that looks like a wrench crossed with a pencil)
3. Select "Email tasks to this project"
That's it. Please let me know if you have further questions.
I was looking for the adress on the left menu (like in projects clicking in the "..." link.
Now I got it.
