Email links with gmail plug in


I use the todoist gmail plugin on my Mac, but the email links created do not open on my ipad, even thought I have mobile gmail.

Is this a bug, or badly designed feature? Something I am doing wrong?

Hello Martin,

Unfortuantely this is an issue we're looking into, but can't work around it yet because the way iOS devices handle such links are different from otehr devices. Safari tries to forward you to Gmail rather than maintain the URL pointing directly to the message or tries to use the Gmail app to open the link which also attempts to just open your inbox instead of maintaining the URL.

We're looking into it, but so far we unfortunately couldn't find a solution to this issue :(

Best regads,
