Gadget new feature: Add this email in Timetonote

If you don't like to forward emails you receive from your customers to Timetonote, there is an easier way now to add those emails into Timetonote: just click the "Add this email in Timetonote" link in the Gmail gadget:

When you click on "Add this email in Timetonote" the email you're currently viewing in Gmail gets added to the Timetonote contact's history. The email is shared, by default, in the same group as that of the contact. You can also edit the email in the gadget and change the group, the date, or attach the email to a project.

However, there are two limitations to this feature. First, only the first one thousand characters of the email body are grabbed and added into Timetonote, and second, the email attachments are not added.

To use this feature all you have to do is add Timetonote to your Google Domain. If you've already added Timetonote to your Google Domain, follow these steps:
1. Go to your Google Domain management page.
2. Locate the "Timetonote" application and click on "View and grant access":

3. Then, click on "Grant data access" to grant Timetonote access to the new data requirements.

Thank you for using Timetonote.


  1. I have done the 4 steps, but I do not see the two access links, just a bunch of white space:

    Hide | Open contact page in a new window (note: the browser may block the new window)

    No contact found in Timetonote with this email address. You can sign in to Timetonote and add one.

  2. That means Timetonote did not found a contact in your Timetonote account with that email address(i.e. TO and FROM email fields) in Timetonote.

    You should add the contact for which you're viewing the email in Timetonote and then you'll be able to see the contact page in the gadget. For example, if you're viewing an email from Bob you should have a contact with the same email address in Timetonote:

    The ability to add a contact in Timetonote from the gadget will be added soon.

  3. Great Feature, BUT is there anyway to control permission of the added email. Looks like it is currently added as "everyone" which is not appropriate in most cases.

  4. The email is added by default in the same group as the person's group. It is added to "Everyone" group if the person is in the "Everyone" group.
