Add Email as Task from inside an email


Is it possible to add an email as a task from within an open email?

I have the outlook plugin and from the main inbox windows I can select either the button within the outlook ribbon (add todoist) or use the docked panel on the right and select Add email as task..


If I open that email. The ribbon doesn't display the icon nor does the option of Add email as task?

Is this correct?

Hello Matthew,

Unfortunately, that's not possible. There is unfortunately an issue with the current Outlook app and the Todoist plugin shouldn't show within the window of a mail at all.

However, with Todoist Premium, in addition to the "Add email as task" feature, you could also send/forward messages to your Todoist project (even without using the plugin). Please refer to the second part of this post on our blog for more information: http://todoist.com/blog/2013/01/zero-inbox-policy-with-todoist/

Best regards,
