Starred Emails Don't Become Tasks

hanlonj says:
Hi,

I have the latest version of Gmail. I have it set to US English. I have also changed the setting in Gmail to make starred emails tasks and applied the change accordingly. However, they do not become tasks.
Any advice?

Hi

I had the same issue. After deactivating Better Gmail 2 0.6 it seems to work again.

Hope it helps.

Hi,
I actually installed the latest (June 08) "rtm for gmail" and it works now.The starred emails become tasks but I still don't have the "Make this a task" item on my gmail menu.

I'm with brad.shorr. Starred emails don't become tasks. I have the latest RTM version and current gmail version. Better Gmail is uninstalled. Still doesn't work. It used to work, but now it doesn't.

I'm with all of you on this. Just last week my starred items stopped becoming tasks. I never used the menu drop down to create a task from an email because I always used to just star them and it worked fine. No more. I have triple checked all my settings and I am up to date with RTM and Gmail and my add ons. I don't have Better Gmail either.

What do you think is next?

I wish I knew. No one seems to have a solution to this, and adding a task from my inbox was my favorite RTM function. I hope they get this fixed very soon. PLEEASSEEE!

It looks like Google may have released a new version of Gmail's code (they sometimes release the new code to a small number of Gmail users first, before rolling it out to everyone).

We'll need to update our extension to handle their changes -- we'll get this updated as soon as we can. Thanks for your patience!

Good. Thanks, Emily for letting us know that RTM is doing something about it. I can be patient so long as I know I'm being heard.
