attaching an email thread/msg to a task as a 'note'


I don't see any easy way to drag-and-drop an email msg to the note field of a task. For instance,
* I initiate a new task from an Outlook email
* I want to suck in the body of the email (with links to documents or attachments) into the notes field for review/action

I have to drop the email note on the desktop, then import it into ToDoist using the import feature. Too many steps.

is there something I'm missing?

Hi Rick,

This page should help explain the options and how to accomplish it. https://todoist.com/blog/2013/01/zero-inbox-policy-with-todoist/

Basically, you can't add attachments, they won't follow. You can either email a project to create a task, which adds information to the notes section, or through an extension which creates a link to the email.
