How to email tasks and comments to Todoist?

Available on:

Send emails as tasks

1. Open your Inbox or the particular project you want to email to and click the pencil & wrench icon ('Task actions') on the top-right side to find the Email tasks to this project option there (this menu option is not available on our mobile apps).

2. Send or forward an email to the unique email address (will be shown in the window that appears) to create a task. The email's subject will become the content of the task while the body will be added as a comment. All attachments smaller than 25MB will also be attached. Please note that currently we only support images attached to the email (inline images are not supported). 

Supported syntax:

Due dates

Set due dates directly from your email client. Simply include <date tomorrow> in either the subject or the body of the email (Please note that the text that you would modify is only the actual date portion. So the exact syntax is "<date" + any of Todoist's date query + ">"). You can use all of Todoist's supported due date syntax such as <date every day>.


Label your email tasks by including labels (e.g. @work or @shopping) in either subject or body of the email.


Set priorities on your email tasks by including !!1, !!2 or !!3 (or p1, p2, p3) in either subject or body of the email.

Send emails as comments

It's possible to send or forward emails as task and project comments, for example, when you need to add information to a task or project that already exists.

1. Open the task or project comments you want to forward your email to.

2. Click on the email icon at the top of the comment window to get the forwarding address.
