Email to Task to Calendar
This isn’t a really new feature, but I’m finding it very handy today, so I thought I’d share!
You get an email, it has something you need to do at a later date. While you’re in the email, just click “More Actions” and select “Add to Tasks”. This will create a task in your list that is now automatically linked to that email. Next, you can add a due date, change the description of the task if the subject from the email is not descriptive enough, and make any additional notes you’ll need.
Then, if you want a quick overview of what is on your plate for the day, you can either:
- Open your task box and click Actions / Sort by Due Date, or
- Open your calendar and select “Tasks” under “My Calendars”
(Now, if Google would just add the ability to add reminders to these tasks, we’d be in REAL business…)
