List names with spaces

stephen.nevison Pro says:

Is there any way to use smart add via email with list names that contain a space?

For example I have many lists using a letter as a sort of sub group implemanation like:

P project one
P project two

if I want to add a task via email I want to send

task today #tag1 #tag2 #p project one

I get the task created with the correct due date and the "tag1" and "tag2" but then I also get 3 additional tags "p" "project" and "one"

I've tried the following to no avail:

task today #tag1 #tag2 "#p project one"
task today #tag1 #tag2 #"p project one"

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Hi stephen.nevison,
Your initial example should work fine (task today #tag1 #tag2 #p project one) but you may find that making the syntax more explicit may help a bit:

task ^today #p project one #tag1 #tag2

(just with the added ^ to explicitly suggest the due date).

If that doesn't help, can you contact us with a full example that we can discuss? Thanks!

Hey Andrew,

Not sure what I was doing wrong but it does indeed seem to work!

I deleted my drafts actions (using the background email features) and started again and all seems fine

Thanks again for the help
