You can simply create a task by sending an email to Tasks in a Box. The received email will be converted into a task and the email will be linked to that task for future reference.
You can place the Tasks in a Box email address either in the To, CC or BCC field of your email. It is a good idea to add these email addresses as contacts to your Contacts app. This makes it very easy to send an email to one of these email addresses.
Tasks can be added either to your Inbox or to a specific project.
Add an email to your Inbox
You can add an email as task to your Inbox by using one of the following email addresses:
- Navigate to My Tasks
- Click Create tasks via email in the toolbar at the top of the screen
The screen shows you a number of email addresses that you can use.
|email@example.com||Creates a task in your Inbox.|
|firstname.lastname@example.org||Creates a task in your Inbox and sets the due date to today.|
|email@example.com||Creates a task in your Inbox and sets the due date to tomorrow.|
Add an email to a project
You an add an email as task to a specific project as well. Each project in Tasks in a Box has a unique email address. You can find the email address of a project as follows:
