We run on email -day in day out- as it has become an essential part of business. But sometimes email is a bit of a distraction from what you are really working on.At Zoho we love the concept of contextual integration – which means that you don’t need to be switching around apps to do the things you want to do. Instead, the apps and data should be available to you in context. We use that as a guiding principle throughout our extensive portfolio of 20+ apps.But of course, it’s not just about Zoho apps.Today we’re excited to announce the Zoho Projects Gmail Contextual Gadgets for Google Apps users, which makes it easy to manage your projects, tasks and more in Zoho Projects. The best part is – all this is done right within your email – without leaving Gmail or your inbox.

The Gmail Contextual gadget allows you to:

  • Create a project in Zoho Projects from your email message
  • Transform your email into an actionable task in Zoho Projects
  • Convert an intelligent idea sent through an email into a forum post
  • Assign a task to any of your team members right from within your Gmail message
Zoho Projects Gmail Contextual Gadget greatly accelerates user adoption by bringing the project directly to your users in context with the project flow. In addition, it drastically improves productivity, saves lot of time and makes life easier for your project management  team.Give it a try! Invite your project team and see how it adds power to your work process. If you are using Zoho Projects for Google Apps, you can now use the Zoho Projects Contextual Gadgets.Let us know in the comments about this new feature addition or email us at support@zohoprojects.com

    One missing key feature would be an option to add the email content as a note on the task.>> We do have this option. Please refer the below link for more details

    One missing key feature would be an option to add the email content as a note on the task. This is the default behaviour when you forward the email to the project task email alias but it would be very useful to also be able to achieve the same result by selecting the “New Task” button at the bottom of the email.

    FYI – This feature didn’t appear for me in my Gmail until I had disabled and re-enabled the Priority Inbox feature.Works perfectly though 🙂
