The number one feedback I received from readers after yesterday’s review of Things was that they did not know they could drag web or email clippings (or any other links to files) into the “Notes” pane for a task.
Reader, Pat Dryburgh pointed out in an email that for those who use Gmail but not a desktop mail client (such as Mail), they can still link a particular email message within the Notes pane. Since Gmail offers permalinks of their email message, you can drag the web clip for that message’s URL into your task in Things.
From the Offical Gmail Blog:
All emails now have dedicated URLs, so just by adding a browser bookmark while viewing a message, you can return to it whenever you want, just like a regular web page–although you will still have to log in to Gmail if you’ve signed out.
