Adding Task lists and tasks via Email

With Tasks and Tasklist, you can stay organized and achieve your project objectives with ease. You have the option to set deadlines and assign tasks, which can be managed from the Tasks tab in a project.

Adding tasks has never been more flexible, as you can now initiate a tasklist and add tasks directly from your email inbox. All you need to do is copy the project-specific smart email address from the Email Docs tab in your project, and compose an email to this address.

Here's how to add a tasklist and tasks using email:

  • Copy your project-specific smart email address from the Forwards tab in your project.

  • Open your email client (GMail, Yahoo, etc) and click on "Compose" to start a new email.
  • Paste the project-specific smart email address in the to address bar.
  • The subject line of the email must start with "Task list:" followed by the title of the task list.
  • Add tasks in the email body, each task starting with an asterisk (*) followed by a space and the name of the task.

  • Send the email to add the tasklist and tasks.
