Emailing tasks into Get It Done

An easy way to add tasks to your Get It Done account is to email them to the app. If you go into your settings link located at the bottom left of your window, then click the ‘Email’ button you will see your unique @GetItDoneApp.com email address. I suggest you put this address in your address book so that any time you get an email which will require your attention, you can simply forward the message to your unique Get It Done email address and we automatically add the task for you (attachments and everything)!

Email Settings


You can also set the Area, Tags, or the Focus of the task by using some special syntax in the email subject:

  • Area or Responsibility: use the "@" sign. For example if you write in the subject of the email "Take out the garbage @home" we will add the task to your "Home" Area of Responsibility if one exists.
  • Focus: use the "#" sign. For example if you write in the subject of the email "Take out the garbage #Today" we will add the task to your "Today" folder. If you do not put in a focus we automatically put all emails in to your Inbox. You can also put the task in #Next or #Someday folders.
  • Tag: use the "%" sign. For example if you write in the subject of the email "Take out trash %high %home" we will create a task with the tags "High" and "Home" if those tags already exist.
If your Area or Tag has 2 words in it just put quotes around it like this: %"High Priority"
