With gmail is the standard "Create Task" button that can extract data from the email message that is open at the time and a gqueues task can be fully setup. tags can be done, dates and assignments, etc ... all of which functions quite well.
Here is a different use case that has come up that may warrant a little think time to see how best to address it.
We already have all of our users using gqueues with gmail and use both the gmail U/I plus the gqueues.com
browser interface to add/edit/update tasks, etc.
This is a different scenario that they would also like to do.
Our users hold meetings a lot, over the phone. They use google calendar to schedule them.
They need to take notes on the meeting while holding the call, plus they would also like to create a list of tasks with tags and dates and assignments as a result of the call.
They can, of course, have a totally separate window open in the gqueues.com
U/I and make notes there with assignments, etc, but they would really prefer to have that calendar event be the linked event that is, in essence, the primary record, from which all tasks are created.
It is like the meeting minutes sort of use case, where line item notes are taken, some resulting in actions by various attendees with due dates and priorities.
There are other 3rd party google calendar extensions that ONLY focus on meeting minutes and such, but that is yet another separate island of information, not tied to gqueues.com
If there was an approach where gqueues could be the meeting minute/action item/note taker extension, directly linked to the google calendar entry, that would be quite a differentiation from other players in the market.
