Create Tasks from Emails

You can create priorities for yourself straight from your inbox. Yalla gives every user a unique “email to priority” address that you can send mail to. The system creates a priority based on the subject and body of any messages you send.

To start, head into your settings and open the “Keys” tab. Look for the field marked “Email to Priorities.” If it’s empty, just click the circular arrow to the right to generate an email address.

You can create a priority for yourself any time by sending a message to this email address. We recommend saving it to your address book so you don’t have to remember it!

Yalla will pull in the entire body of the email – including any signatures – to the description of the new priority. It sets the due date as the time you sent the email – though you can always open up the priority and change its due date.

Creating priorities from emails is a great way to add things to your to-do list on the go. It also works with forwarded emails. If you get an email from a client or colleague that you don’t want to forget, just forward it to your unique priority email address. Yalla will handle the rest!
