web address instead of link to email


- Using the gmail extension in Chrome on macbook air
- The email compose window open with an active draft email
- Click on the TD link in gmail to set a follow up on an item

- The task name is a long link to the email instead of the subject line.

Is this normal behavior? It seems to happen consistently to me. Do I have to have the compose window closed for the extension to work properly?

Hi Don,

No this would not be normal. It does appear to only happen if the Compose window is already open. I will pass this along to the developers.

Thanks for the follow up. I'll wait patiently for a fix. :)

Unfortunately due to how the Gmail interface works, its not exactly easy to manipulate, there are limitations, this issue is unlikely to get fixed any time soon.

Please try to add a task to Todoist when the compose window is not open. I know this is not what you want to hear, sorry about that.
