How to create a due date,length when adding a task using IFTTT

Dear fellow Toodledo lovers, hello.

Today I will show you some tips on how to register Google calendar schedules as Toodledo tasks.

When registering tasks using IFTTT "Action" , you couldn't set "Due Date" or "Length" on Toodledo tasks, which was kind of annoying.

So, I tried combining IFTTT and Google Apps Script. Ta-da! Turns out you can retrieve task information accurately!

Below are step by step instructions on how to do it, try it out!

- - - - - - - -



1.Enable e-mail importing (toodledo.com)

2.Use this IFTTT recipe (ifttt.com)

https://ifttt.com/recipes/196999-if-any-new-event-added-on-google-calendar-then-send-me-an-email




- "Google Calendar Channel" and "Email Channel" -- please activate each.(Please set up by Gmail account.)
- It is OK even if each Google account is different.

3.Setup of Google Apps Script (docs.google.com/spreadsheets/)


https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/


- Please access "Google Sheets" after logging in by the same account as the Gmail address set up above.



- Create an "Untitled spreadsheet", and paste your address for "e-mail import" on the cell of most the upper left(cell A:1).
- And click a menu in order of a Tools -> Script editor.



- The Script Editor will open. Delete all of the example code , and add the following code:

http://toodledotips.jp/tool/Code.gs.txt

, and then click Save.



- To execute the script, either click ▶ or select the menu item Run -> checkMailToTask.



- A dialog box will appear and tell you that the script requires authorization. Click Continue.



- A second dialog box will then request authorization for specific Google services. Read the notice carefully, then click Accept.



- From the Script Editor, choose Resources -> Current project's triggers. You see a panel with the message No triggers set up. Click here to add one now.



- Under Run, select the function checkMailToTask.
- Under Events, select Time-driven, Minutes timer and Every 15 minutes.
, and then click Save.

- Congratulations!
- Setup is now complete.


(If a schedule is created on a calendar, e-mail will be transmitted and a task will be registered automatically.)

Wow, working like a champ!

I modified your script as the From email was different and I added the Folder and Content to the subject string.

I also added a Prefix [GC] in the IFTTT receipt subject and created a Gmail Filter to archive it into a folder.

Love it! and that was fun scripting gmail too! Woot! :D

Hello and thanks for posting this.

When I try to run the script, I get the following error:
Cannot read property "date" from undefined. (line 57, file "Code")

Any idea how to fix?

Thanks,

Rod

Thank you for the report.

It would be a big help if you could tell me the text of the email that came to the Gmail address via IFTTT Action <action@ifttt.com>, because then I would be able to investigate.

Thank you for your offer to help.

I've pasted the text of the email I get from Google regarding this error.
