    Quite often emails go far beyond being just a simple back and forth between you and your customer or client. Instead, they require investigation, interaction, discussion, and multiple follow-ups. To make the management of emails easier, they need to be treated like to-dos, tasks to be completed. Mailbutler’s Tasks feature is a tool to do just that. Using it, users can turn their emails and contacts in Apple Mail into actionable to-dos, so you never forget to reply.

    What does the Mailbutler Tasks feature do?

    The Tasks feature lets you take any email or contact and add a to-do. You can add your task using the Sidebar of Mailbutler right in your email client – so no need to go to an external program. With it, you can set up a due date for the to-do item and get reminded automatically when it’s time to complete it. Further, a little note can be added to the to-do items in case any more information is needed for you to be able to take action. It’s great for setting tasks to follow-up, to ask for that important document, or to organize that meeting that needs to be held.

    You can also automate your tasks much the same as you can do with a follow-up reminder. You can set an automation on each individual task to remove your reminder, delete the task, or set the task to complete. You can also set a default automation for all new tasks you make in your settings.

    The Mailbutler app provides a list of all of your tasks that need completing, meaning you’ll never lose any of your to-dos. Once you’ve completed your task, you can mark the item as done, and get them off the to-do list. The feature ensures that tasks are never forgotten even if you can’t find the specific email or contact you need.

    How can I use the Mailbutler Tasks feature?

    The Tasks feature combines perfectly with other Mailbutler features, such as Send Later:

    • Receive an important email
    • No time to reply? Add a to-do to the email
    • Set a date when it needs to be completed by
