Ability to respond to reminder emails to complete, postpone, etc

patrick.nickles says:
I've been assuming this would be forthcoming for a long time but since it hasn't arrived I'll make a public request:

PLEASE give me the ability to POSTPONE tasks by simply hitting REPLY then "P" then SEND to an IM / Email rec'd from RTM. (Google already does this when you reply to an IM about Movie showtimes, etc.)

My RTM inbox is regularly overflowing w/ completed tasks just because I don't have time to go in and complete tasks all the time. And being able to just type "P: 30 minutes" would be invaluable. (Right now I have to FWD the reminder to my RTM account and set up another reminder if i want it to pop up again 4 hours or 4 days later.

Not too efficient...

Just my 2 cents. Time to go clean the 1,100 old overdue items from my inbox. (Who am I kidding... I'm not going to get to it today...)

This would be an invaluable addition to RTM like what I had with Dear old Sandy.

agree as well. Just starting to use RTM and thought it would be optimal to complete or postphone a task simply be responding to the reminder

And with multiple reminders:

These 2 tasks are due in 15 minutes:
1. $40 to Bruce (9:00AM)
2. RSVP for Christmas Party (9:00AM)

Reply:
1. P: 1 day [Postpone]
2. C [Complete]

PLEASE. This would take it one step closer to the awesomeness that was IWantSandy.

I find it rather absurd that the emails don't even include a *link* to the task on the RTM website. In my opinion they should include a link for Postpone and Complete in the emails (Clicking a link would be easier than writing a reply, and would be easier to implement.

For text messages and IMs you should definitely include the 'Reply' option.

I think either a link to the task or a the ability to respond with a command as suggested above would be great. It would be a pretty simple change, I'm sure, to just include the link, which would be very helpful. The response would be better, but starting with the link would work for me. Thanks!

Has this been implemented yet? I just signed up as the guinea pig for my office, and when got the reminder email my first thought was that I should be able to mark tasks complete by replying. Having to log in and select each task will get time-consuming.

Seems complicated to remember the syntax, but maybe a check icon in the email I can click on or something.
