How to preserve link to e-mail task after it is archived?


Creating a task from an e-mail works by clicking on the "Add email as task" link.

If i click on the subject of that task right away, it opens the e-mail in a new tab, neat!

However, if i archive that e-mail (moving it from a sub-folder of my Inbox to the 2014 subfolder of Archives), pressing the task title no longer works. No reaction.

Unfortunately, the point for me of making tasks out of e-mails is to get them out of my inbox.

Can you maintain the connection to an e-mail when it is moved between folders in a mailbox?

Hello Benjamin,

Thank you for your report, we'll look into improving this and make the links active after moving to a different folder. For now, you could try to move them first and then add as tasks.

Best regards,

Benjamin is right on here. My work flow is this:

1. Click "Add email as task" for an email
2. Click "Archive" to remove it from my inbox
3. Open up email with task (*does not* work with Todoist extension)

Please add this as a feature. Thanks!
