Create a Gmail gadget that allows you to create a task directly from your Gmail interface. We were able to do that with a CRM solution called WorkEtc. There were buttons at the bottom of every email, that allowed you to assign any email to a Task, List, Workspace (different terms in Worketc, but same concept). This allows for a complete and thorough task list.
Right now, I find myself starring emails as a task reminder to follow up, and also having to check Flow for other tasks. It redundnat to create a task in flow to respond to an email which you've already starred.
This isn’t a planned feature at the moment, but you can quickly forward any task to Flow using the email tasks feature: https://www.getflow.com/support/tasks/creating-tasks-email/

I'm using it (Chrome plugin) in Todoist (which is my personal task manager). Very handy. Also able to add "website" as a task. This is definitely a good idea for the productivity part.

Given the new Gmail right col bar, a Flow GSuite integration would be most helpful!

Any idea on a timeline for this one? I see it was planned back in 2014. :)
And if it's in Gmail, then there's a handy URL to point to so that the relationship is birectional allowing you to access you email from Flow too which'd be handy.
Is the Google Gmail gadget released?
