The "Add tasks via Email" feature is not visible enough


I've subscribed to Todoist Premium to use the "Add tasks via Email" feature. However, I really searched a long time to use this feature. There is no link or any definition how to add a task via email.

I've looked at the help page and there is not a single definition or link to this feature. After a time, I've found that clicking on a tiny "email icon" shows a page with a e-mail to this feature.

I've would be happy if you could make this feature more observable or add more help text to new users. It's really confusing this way.

I agree with the comment. I've just spent 20 minutes looking for help on this subject and still haven't found an answer/link yet...

Hello Scott,

in order to add tasks via email, enter a particular project and then click the envelope icon at the top of the list.

It's on the right end of the project name, next to the "Task Actions" gear icon.

+1 on this. I just spent 20 minutes doing the same - couldn't figure out how to email to a project!

Hello Manoj,

the email you've sent to the displayed address will be added as a Todoist task with the subject line becoming the task name and the mail body - the task comment. You can also add due dates, labels and reminders this way.

For detailed instructions, please refer to the information written in the window shown when clicking on the envelope icon.

Best regards,
