Tips, Tricks and Secrets #7: Make Tasks from Emails

Have you ever received an email asking you to do something?  The better question might be have you ever gotten an email that DIDN’T?

While I’d like to get things done right away, emails can be an interruption to whatever you are currently working on.  One of the best tips for Intellect users is to turn an email direct into a to do item!

When you want to email back that you’ll do it (but not right now), simply drag the email and drop it on the tasks button at the lower left corner. That’s it!  Intellect will make a new task item with a description just like the subject of the email. It will even build a link back to the email message so that when it comes time to actually do the job, you can easily refer back to the email request that started everything.
