Include URL to email when adding from Gmail

nathan.yergler says:

The new version of GMail provides a URL for individual messages (this makes forward/back work as you'd expect). It'd be extremely handy to populate the URL field for a task with that URL when making an email into a Task. That way I have more than just the subject line to go on (and RTM becomes a little more integrated into my daily workflow).

Agreed! I was about to post a new topic on this exact idea.

This feature would make the gmail extension about 2x as useful

YES! +++1. Right now I've been copying and pasting in the gmail URL into the forwarded message so I have the link back to the orig. message.

I agree that having the gmail url in the task would be fabulous. Often I would like to change the task name to something other than the email subject, but I know that I will never find the original email again if I do that.

If this gets implemented, please ensure it works with hosted gmail eg mail.google.com/a/mydomain.com as well as gmail.com.

Just came to suggest this idea. It makes me sad that it's been out there for 2 years already :/ Any hope of this?

I also just came to post this as an excellent idea - and I'm sad its been here for 3.5 years!!

Alternative, if its easier, would be to add the body of the email as a Note, but i think the URL idea is neater and more useful overall as it gives access to the whole conversation rather than just 1 email.
