The email to Marvin strategy is always on. It allows you send/forward emails to your Marvin account which will automatically be turned into a task.

Your Marvin email address

To figure out the address of your Marvin account, go to the strategy settings. 

There you will find your unique Marvin email address. 

Send any email you want to have turned into a task or project to this address:

Mapping email data

The subject line of the email will be turned into the task title. 

And the email body will be stored in the task note.

Adding additional data to your task

If you want to give the task additional data, such as a due date, time estimate, labels or file it in the correct category of project you an simply include that information in the shortcut format in the subject line. 

So for example to add a label called @urgent to a task add @urgent to the subject line of the email before sending it.


Adding a task with @urgent label that is scheduled for tomorrow:

Adding a task to the "Friends & Family" category that's planned for the next week:

Keep in mind that if your category name consists only of one word that there's no need to use quotation marks.

Adding a task that is 30 minutes long and has the highest priority star:

Creating a project instead of a task

By default, sending an email to Marvin creates a task. 

If you want to create a project instead, add p: or project: at the very beginning of the subject line. 

Additional Settings and email attachments

In the strategy settings, you can also choose whether you want to have an email icon that upon clicking opens the forwarded email in Gmail. You can also choose if you want to have the sender's email address displayed.

If you enable the "Include attachments" setting, then attachments forwarded to your Marvin email will be added as attachments to the created Tasks/Projects.
