How can I create a task from Email?

SupportTasks › Article

You can use both the Subject line and the body of the message.

Subject: add here the main information for the task: name, list it belongs to, tags and due date (currently, it accepts today & tomorrow).

Body: the body of the message will be saved in the Description field (you can add up to 280 characters).

You don't need to write anything in the message body if you don't want to add a description. You can create a task just by adding information to the subject line.


Task name @list #tag1 #tag2 #tag3 !due date

The only mandatory part is the task name. It's up to you if you want to add a list, tags or due date. You must ALWAYS write the task name in the first place; after that, the order you write the tags, list or due date doesn't matter.


Now, when you set a due date for a task, you can use both natural language and regular, day of the month dates. You just need to enter ! followed by the due date.

  • Natural language: use the word "next" followed by a day of the week: !next monday, !Next Sunday, !Next Wed, !next fri, !NEXT TUE
  • Regular dates: just enter the day and month: !March 12, !APR 20, !JUNE 30, !DEC 01, !12 September, !30 Nov, !11 Feb

Here are some examples that show you how to combine all possible elements in the subject line of an email to Hightrack:

  • Make report with last sales @marketing #reports #team !today
  • Debug homepage code #debug !tomorrow
  • Call Mike for next meeting !today
  • Update Netflix movie list @personal #online #movies #family
