I haven't been using Dooster for very long and I know that there is a "set up a task through e-mail" feature, but I am not too sure I am doing it right as it doesn't seem to work.

Please help, this feature would really help me out.

    Hi Vince,

    Welcome to Dooster!

    This is how to set up tasks through your email:

    STEP 1) Click on the email icon at the right of each task list title bar
    -this will open a small pop up showing the task list's unique email address

    STEP 2) Set up the email by clicking on the email address - this will open your email client

    STEP 3) add the list email address, with an easy to remember name, into your contacts (like "Project X ideas") - that way you can just type in "Project X Ideas" to find it later.

    That's it!

    Once you send the email it will go straight into that list and becomes a task! You can then give it a due by date, priority or assign it to someone else, etc.

    Hope this helps!
