Email In Due Date

It would be awesome if there was a way that we could set due dates when using the Email-In function.

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting! Will the following text inside the email body

    → 30/08/18

    1. Create design 10/08/18 <→ 15/08/18
    2. Implement design 16/08/18 <→ 25/08/18

    which will create a task from email with a due date 30 Aug and two subtasks with start/due dates work for you?

    Regards,
    Igor

        My suggestion, more consistent with the way Email-in supports setting of location on the Subject line for Files....

        I'd like to see support for setting Start & Due dates the same way, for Tasks.

        That is, Subject Line:

        "My Task Description /Start 10/18/2018 /Due 10/31/2018"

        Creates the task, sets description and adds Start & Due dates.

        This would be phenomenal. I agree!! Thanks in advance for the update. When can we expect it to be implemented?

      • AdminFreedcamp (Feedback Squad, Freedcamp) commented  · 

        Let's start with start/due date. Please note if you email in into the free plan project - start date will be ignored.

        Add the following into email subject:

        ->15/08/18 This is my email subject line

        - this will create a task with a due date

        15/08/18-> This is my email subject line

        - this will create a task with a start date

        15/08/18<->20/08/18 This is my email subject line

        - this will create a task with a start date and a due date

        Hello Igor!

        Thanks for getting back to me! Yes, that would work great! Just to make sure that I understand correctly, it would appear something like this in an email:

        "Example Task -> 30/08/18
        [tab] 1. Subtask A 10/08/18<->15/08/18
        [tab] 2. Subtask B 16/08/18<->25/08/18"

        Thanks for your help with this, it's going to be a really helpful feature!!

        Kind regards,

        Tianna
