Add Gmail email as task


I cannot add a Gmail email as a task since I am using the new preview feature of Gmail.

The problem is that the address field does not show the unique address for that particular email: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox

When I add the email to Google's own task list, a unique URL is generated. This should also be done by the Todoist plugin.

Hello Volker,

That's correct and unfortunately, there's nothing we can do about it. Our plugin must see the unique ID of the message in the URL to be able to identify it, but the "Preview Pane" hides this URL making it impossible for us to track the message.

Please try to contact the author of the "Preview Pane" Gmail Labs extension and ask to reveal/update the URL when viewing a message.

Best regards,
