Your inbox is used for:

  1. Tasks that aren’t assigned yet. When a task appears in the inbox, it can be dragged and dropped into any project quadrant. If it doesn’t fit in a project, it can stay there and operates like any other task — you can set a due date, reminders, or even reassign it to someone else.
  2. Holding quick tasks. Click the blue + sign on the upper left of the screen, choose “new item,” and start typing.
  3. Holding emails that are forwarded in. Each user gets a secret email address which will forward the email straight into the inbox. Emails function the same as other tasks, but the icon will be a green envelope to differentiate it. The subject line becomes the task name and the body becomes the notes.
  4. Holding links pulled from Google Chrome. Download the Google Chrome extension here to grab anything off the internet, such as a Google Drive document, something off Sharepoint or Dropbox, or an important website.

For a final note, sometimes your inbox is getting too full and you want to mass delete things, such as unwanted emails. When you’re on a computer, all you have to do is select the items you want removed by right clicking on them and selecting “delete” from the menu. If you’re on a mobile device, it won’t work, so just log into the web app or use the desktop app.
