How to add Gmail Mails to Toodledo

Hi there,

I would like to do the following:

1. Add Mail to Folder X in Gmail
2. Have this Mail automatically added to Toodledo Folder Y
3. The Toodledo task should contain a clickable link to the email.

I found the IFTTT extension already, however the IFTTT Gmail IF does not allow to retrieve the
Gmail link, so 3. is not possible which renders it useless as a reminder for emails.

Another option is to do it in 2 steps: a) add the current link to toodledo via the bookmarklet or a chrome extension
b) label it with X

Does anyone know a way to do this? I'm out of ideas

I do not know of a 1 step way to do this, but its a good idea. We have some ideas for how to do this in the future.

I think the only possible way to do this is to use Google Apps Script, have to figure out how to do the authentication first, though.

I did it now with Google Apps Script, it works like this:

1. Gmail label TODO is assigned
2. Email is added to Toodledo Inbox, including subject, content, link

Two possible ways to process it:

3a. If the corresponding task is completed in Toodledo, TODO label is removed in Gmail
3b. If the TODO label is removed in Gmail, task is completed in Toodledo

This is working fine. The only thing I have to figure out is the rate limit.

@Jake, I noticed that toodledo does not allow to filter when retrieving tasks, is that right?

That is correct. The API was designed for syncing, not for querying. So you can only choose to fetch all tasks or those that have been modified since after a certain point in time.

For future reference, in case people are looking for how to implement this: it is explained in more detail in the thread below.
