Inputting Tasks via Email
I often times bcc my task management app on an email. When I have done that in Todoist, the text of the email appears as a note but there is no link to the original email. Am I correct in assuming I would have to go to the sent email item and manually add it from within the gmail web client?
That's correct. Sending tasks via email will convert the entire email to a task with a note. Using our browser or Gmail plugins will allow you to actually link to the message, but it won't be converted to a note.
