Send tasks via email - thus creating new projects? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I just began using what I regard the coolest feature of OF: the ability to send tasks via email when you're away from your Mac.
It works great, but it doesn't recognize projects which don't exist yet in its database. For example it won't process the instruction:

>Offset print for Jack @Print lab

...because the project "Offset print for Jack" is something I'm making up just now in the email - it doesn't exist yet.

My question is, am I doing something wrong, or is this feature missing from OF?
Same problem here... did you ever figure this out?

You aren't doing anything wrong. As of OF 1.8sp (v77.48 r131527), when processing mail messages as tasks, you can only assign a project if that project already exists in OF. You cannot create a new project. You may email the support ninjas using Help > Send Feedback to request this as a new feature.
