Add email (from gmail) body as a task note when creating task from Extension


When creating a new task from an email using Todoist Chrome extension, have body of email populate a note for the new task. When saving an email as a task using the extension and then attempting to view the task on a mobile device, the inability to open the email and the lack of a note with the email's body makes the task meaningless on the mobile device. Would be nice to be able to reference the email content in the task notes when viewing on a mobile device.

Hello Zeb,

This solution is already implemented in the "Email tasks to projects" feature. Instead of linking to a task using the Chrome extension, you can quickly forward the message directly to your Todoist project. The subject of the email will become the task name and the whole content of it - a task note.

To find more information about this feature as well as the unique email address for each of your projects, please enter a project, click on the gear icon at the top of the list and choose "Email tasks to this project" from this menu.

Best regards,
