If you use Gmail as your primary email and calendar account, you can save time by turning an email into a task.
Create a task from an email in Gmail
Open the desired letter or select it from the message list.
Select from the menu at the top of the message box Lake (three horizontal dots).
Select Add to tasks † Or use the hotkey Shift+T † The panel will open Task and the task is highlighted in yellow at the top of the list.
Select a task, delete the existing text, and then enter a descriptive name for the task.
To organize tasks, move a task or make it a subtask of another task. Subtasks allow you to associate a single task with multiple messages.
To open a message related to an item in Gmail Tasks, select Associated email address in the task title in the task list.
Adding an email message to a task does not delete it from your inbox and you cannot archive, delete, or move it. The email will remain attached to the task until you delete the message, but you can process it outside of tasks as usual.
To edit the details of a to-do item in Gmail tasks:
Select Tasks in the right pane of the Gmail window to view your tasks.
Select Edit details next to the task you want to change.
Add, delete, or change information in a task.
Select Add subtasks to add a subtask to the task.
