Todoist.Outlook vs. Todoist.Chrome

I use Todoist.Outlook plug-in mostly for adding mails as tasks. And I use Todoist.Chrome plug-in for all other actions. When I want to open a mail-task from Todoist.Chrome, nothing happens. I have to go to Todoist.Outlook and open the task from there. Is there a way to open saved Todoist.Outlook mails directly from Todoist.Chrome?

Hello Alexander,

Thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately, it's not possible to open Outlook mails through the Chrome plugins. The links to these mails are using a special format that only Outlook can understand as they point to an element within Outlook and the browser can't understand this format.

If you would prefer to see the entire message within a task and don't really need to have the related email linked, instead of adding emails as tasks, you can send/forward the to Todoist. This will convert the entire message to a task note (but won't link to it). Please refer to this post on our blog for an explanation of both options: https://todoist.com/blog/2013/01/zero-inbox-policy-with-todoist/

Best regards,
