How To Use Todoist With Gmail Starred Emails And IFTTT

Gmail can be configured to be a pretty powerful system in it’s own right, however when you connect it to tools like Todoist it becomes really powerful and takes the burden of organization out of Gmail – which should be a communication hub.

What to do?

This is where IFTTT comes in. IFTTT (If This Then That) is a free service that lets you connect many online services for some killer automation.

In this video, I show you how to connect IFTTT to Todoist and Gmail so that starred emails go straight to your Todoist inbox.

This is a really handy recipe that lets you quickly tag emails that need action but that you don’t, or can’t, deal with right now.

I use this daily when going through my emails. I’ll have an email that will take longer than a minute or two to deal with but still needs to be handled.

So what do I do? I star it so that it shows up in my Todoist inbox. From there I can either work on it later when I have time or I can schedule a date or time to deal with it.

This helps save me from spending too much time in my Gmail inbox and gives me a better ability to schedule email related tasks.

If you’d like to use this recipe yourself, just click on it below – you can copy it and use it yourself as it is, or tweak it with tags, specific projects, and more.
