Gmail Integration in 2.0
Hi, I just upgraded to Todoist 2.0 and I'm not seeing gmail integration like has been detailed before here. I have the chrome plugin and I can see "add task" and "add website as a task" at the bottom of each projects, but not "add email as a task". Is this feature no longer supported?

I would suggest clearing the cache for Chrome, which will also clear it for the extension. You can do this by heading into the Settings area, Show Advanced Settings --> Content Settings --> All Cookies & Site Data.
Let me know if that resolves it.
Also, let me know which version of Chrome you are running, do you have any other extensions installed?
Still didn't resolve it. I should also confess that I simply reinstalled the browser plugin when I got the email about 2.0, so this wasn't working "before" since there really wasn't any before...
I have a few installed:
Please tell me - are you using the "Preview Pane" GMail Labs extension? If you are, then unfortunately, you won't be able to use the "Add email as task" feature while it's active because this extension hides the URL that contains the unique ID of the message from the browser and our plugin requires it so that it can see that a message has been opened and know which one it is. Without this we have no way of tracking a message on Gmail.
We're sorry for the inconvenience, but it may not be possible for us to fix this. Again, our plugin must see that you have an email opened and its unique ID. It sees this in the URL, but the Preview Pane prevents the URL from getting the email's ID.
You could try to contact the authors of the Preview Pane extension asking them to change it so that the URL will update with the message's ID just as it does without using the pane.
