How do I create a task from an email?
One of the most popular features in Hiri is the ability to add email directly to the task list. All you need to do is drag an email into the panel on the right hand side. It looks like this:
You can rename the task by clicking on the name. Just click on the title to edit:
You can also:
Creating tasks not associated with a email
Just click on the circle with the + icon, give your task a name, and hit Enter.
Tasks can also be organised into different task lists, or you can create your own list.
To open the task lists, just click on the hamburger icon at the top of the Task panel:
This will open the Task lists:
Task list overview:
My tasks is your generic go-to task list. Only tasks you have dragged into this list will appear here.
This displays tasks from all lists, including Completed and Sent tasks.
A list of tasks that are due today. You can set a due date in the task options panel.
A list of tasks due this week.
Any tasks that you have marked completed will be visible here, provided you have not deleted them.
You can view tasks that you have sent to other people here. Useful if you need to follow up on tasks you have sent.
You can create your own custom list by clicking on the '+ New list' button at the bottom of the list.
Useful things to know about tasks
- Emails that you have dragged to the task list have the "Flagged" label applied to them. That means any emails you have flagged for followup in another email client such as Outlook or the Outlook mobile app will appear in the Hiri task list.
- Tasks you have created manually (i.e. not dragged an email to create) are treated as tasks by Outlook and Microsoft's To Do Mobile App. (To Do app does not work with Exchange 2010)
- Tasks you have created in the To Do mobile app will also appear in Hiri
