If you find yourself using your inbox as a to-do list, there's a better way. With the help of Zapier, any time you star an email in Gmail, it will automatically create a to-do item for you in Todoist.

How it works

  1. You star an incoming email in Gmail
  2. Zapier automatically sends the contents to Todoist

What you'll need

  • A Gmail account
  • A Todoist account
  • A Zapier account

Note: This integration will only work if you have a Business Gmail account - these have custom domains. Free consumer Gmail accounts cannot be used with this integration. Read Help docs here.
