Pro Tip: Create Tasks Directly from Email Messages

Gmail provides us with many different tools to optimize our organization and productivity. Last month, for our Pro Tip we looked at how to to keep your chat messages organized within email threads by replying via chat. This month we are going to build off of this organization theme.
