Can I add a DUE DATE to an email (not a reminder). If there is a reminder, it does not show up in "next 7 days", and I don't want to manage two sets of 2do's. Thanks for your help.
How are you adding emails to Todoist, through one of our extension (which one) or through emailing a project? Adding a date to a task is different depending.
I'm also interested in this thread. I've been trying to set a due date when I am forwarding an email from an email client at work (Outlook) to a project email address, but the due dates aren't captured no matter if I include them in the body or the subject line. Is there a proper approach I am missing?
So you are entering the dates as <date today at 2pm> for example?
I have tried entering the date in the body as '<date May 26>' and just 'May 26', but it doesn't seem to catch?
Please let us know if <date 26 May> or <date 5/26> or <date 26/5> are working. If none of them work, please try <date today> and see if this one also doesn't set a date.
Thanks for the response. <date 26 May> and <date 5/26> worked out. <date 26/5> did something really weird that ended up with the due date set for January 26, 2015 :)
Please make sure that you're using the preferred date and time formats in your account Settings on todoist.com - you can select the MM/DD or DD/MM format there.
