Hello Christian,

The "Add email as task" is visible in two places:

1. In the Quick Add menu when you click on the + icon in the top-right corner.

2. At the bottom of your task list within a project.

The "Add website as task" link is the one that gets replaced by "Add email as task" when you open a message in GMail. If you do and it doesn't change, then please tell me - are you using a GMail Labs extension called "Preview Pane"? If so, then unfortunately, the "Add email as task" feature will not be available for you because the Preview Pane add-on hides the unique ID of the message from the URL and Todoist needs to see this ID in order for this feature to work.

Best regards,

Ok. I checked the labs extensions and deactivated the preview pane. Now it works.

Thanks for your quick help.

Best regards
