Easily forward your emails from any email client to Todoist to add them as tasks or comments.

Forwarding to projects

You can turn your emails into Todoist tasks by forwarding them to a project. The subject line will become the task name, and the body of the email will be added as a comment. All attachments smaller than 25MB will also be attached.

You can also add due dates, labels, priority levels, and assignee right from your email client. All you have to do is include any of these in either the subject or any place above your signature in the body of your email:

Add a due date (and time)

To schedule the task right away, add <date due date>. For example, <date tomorrow><date 12/22>, <date every other day>, and <date every last day>, are all supported. You can use any of Todoist's supported due date and recurring due date formats.

The word date is required when adding a due date. For example, adding <tomorrow> won't work, but adding <date tomorrow> will.

Add labels

To add a label, add @labelname. For example, @work, @email, or @5min.

Set the priority level

To add a priority, simply add p1, p2, or p3.

Assign it to a collaborator

To assign the task when forwarding the email to a shared project, add +firstnamelastname of the assignee. For example, if you’re collaborating with Amy Jones and you want to assign the task to her, simply add +AmyJones. 

Forwarding to comments

You can also forward emails to Todoist as comments. Perfect for when you need to attach information to an existing task or project.
