Does gmail work with the gmail app for smart phones or only in Chrome

G

I purchased the premium service and installed it on my tablet, smart phone and desktop. It seems like it is not working with the gmail app for smart devices as with Chrome.

Hello Gerrit,

Indeed, our Gmail plugin is for the desktop versions of Chrome and Firefox. On mobile, you can send emails as tasks. For more information about this option, please right-click on a a project and go to "Email tasks to this project".


Best regards,
David

So when I am using the gmail app on my smart phone I cannot add an email as a task can I. I noticed also that when opening the Todist app and going to my task and clicking on the email it does not retrieve this email. So my question is should this work inside the gmail app or does it operate separately on the smart devices

Gerrit,

You won't be able to add an email as a task on mobile, unless you forward the message to your project.

If you tap on a link to an existing task/email, then if you would let the browser open it, it should point to the correct message on Android, but the Gmail app can't handle it unfortunately.


Best regards,
David

Why can't you use the logic IFTTT app and get it done. Currently I'm using IFTTT and just star it in Gmail app on my phone and get as a task in my todoist. Pls help

Hi,

Could you please clarify what is the exact issue you are experiencing? Doesn't an IFTTT recipe work for you? If so, which one?

Though it's not an immediate plan, we may consider implementing it in the future. Thank you for the suggestion!
