How do I create tasks by starring?

Important: The browser add-on described in these help pages has been discontinued. We now have an official Gmail add-on, Remember The Milk for Gmail.

With the option to create tasks when you star an email turned on (in Gmail, under 'Settings' then 'Tasks'), each time that you star a message, a new task will automatically be created in Remember The Milk.

Things to note:

With this feature, the task will also be automatically completed if you:

  • 'Unstar' the message
  • Reply to the message by clicking on the email icon in the task details
