Drag and Drop attachments from Outlook E-Mails directly into new task

MA

Dear Support Team,

May I congratulate you for the most complete to-do application I've ever seen!
However, I am missing one essential feature for my workflow.
When I am in outlook and I drag an attachment from the outlook mail directly into the note section of the to-do item, your software does recognize that I am dragging and attachment but when I finally drop it into the note windows the attachment does not appear. It only allows me to drag attachments from real folders or the desktop.

This means that I would have to save the attachment from the email onto a folder to be able to add it to your software. I would really appreciate the option to be able to drag it directly into your software instead of going through that extra step.

Please let me know if you can make this possible.

Thanks

Hi,

It's of course possible, but I don't know when we would add this. Feel free to add this as a suggestion (though there may already be one suggested) in our Votebox and we will consider adding this feature in future updates. http://todoist.com/Vote/

Regards,
Brendon.

To make this a little faster I created a toolbar on my task-bar in windows to a temp folder and drag content to that folder then into the outlook add in to upload files into a task. This way I don't have to minimize outlook or go through the save process. I also created a script that will clear out the folder when I choose to run it. This may help any windows users out there.
