You can easily send an email to your project to either create a Task or post a Message in the discussions. This will be determined by the way you address your email to your project.

Note: You must use the same email address associated with your Nifty workspace when forwarding emails to successfully authenticate.

Locate your Project's Unique Email Forwarding Address

First, you'll need to find your project's email address to forward this email to. You can find and copy your project's email address from your Project Control as shown here:

You'll find the email address for your project from within your as well as formatting layouts from within your Project Control Center:

Creating a Task from an Email

Emails that are forwarded to a project with a subject line but without the [Status] and #tag structure below will automatically appear in the furthest left Status (Kanban view) or top Status (List view) of the project.

Here's the format for sending the email to your project in order to create a task from the email's information:

Email Address (found in project settings):
Subject: Task Name [Status List] #Tag
Body: Task Description

So, here's an example:

Email Address:
Subject: Create onboarding design [To Do] #UX
Body: We need to create a design for when users sign up!

Note that if an open Task currently exists within the project with the same name as the subject line of email being forward, this forwarded email will appear as a comment within that open Task. You will need to change the subject line in order to create a new Task from the forwarded email.

Posting a Message from an Email

Posting messages to a project discussion is a little easier:

Email Address (found in project settings):
Subject: (Leave Blank)
Body: Message you'd like to send :)
Attachments: Just attach your files!

Our example:

Email Address:
Body: I really liked the latest design -- let's use that one!

File Attachments

Files attached to an email will be forwarded into your project tasks or discussions along with the other details you provide.

*Note: Email messages have a total size limit of 20MB. 

Also, this email forwarding works with any and every email provider! 🎉
