Create a task from e-mail

For each To-Do list, you can generate a unique e-mail address and create new tasks from your e-mail directly. E-mail address can be generated for each task. The text of the e-mail is saved as comment in Freelo. Files and attachment will be included.

We recommend that you save the generated addresses between your contacts directly in the mail application. You do not have to come back to Freelo every time when you needed.

How does it work

Generate e-mail address for particular To-Do list via three-dot menu. Find E-mail for task creation… and confirm following forms.

Generate unique e-mail for To-Do list.

There is also information about the sender’s e-mail address.

Reply in e-mail notifications

All of our e-mail notifications can be answered from e-mail directly to Freelo. The response includes all the attachments and looks like a normal comment.

This is useful for users, typically your clients, who do not go directly to Freelo so often. Everything that is important to them they receive to the e-mail. They can reply to it just as usually.

TIP: Do you use Gmail?

We have new Gmail Freelo Add-on that makes creating tasks from the e-mail even more faster. You can set task solver, due date etc.
