How many times have you sent yourself an email as a reminder? A lot of people do that and that includes me too.
Tasks in Gmail has been introduced to address this problem. Whether you have a phone bill to pay after 2 days or have to take your pet to the vet, Gmail Tasks is the right tool for you.
The app not only allows you to add new tasks, it also lets you convert emails into tasks. To convert an email into a task, go to More Actions -> Add To Tasks .
To enable Tasks, you can either click here (if you are signed in to gmail) or go to Settings , click the Labs tab . Select "Enable " next to "Tasks " and then click "Save Changes" at the bottom.
There are sites like Remember The Milk which offer the same service but the convenience of being able to set tasks right through your favourite mail service is just unbeatable.
