How to create task in Calendar from Email message on MacOS

This has been something that I’ve been looking for for a long time. It has never crossed my mind it was there all the time and it was that simple! I just couldn’t figure out how to do it, until now! Let’s cut the chase and let me share with you how you can do that yourself, straight away 🤓

Step 1

Open your calendar app in your preferred view (mine is Week), not in fullscreen — this is important, you’ll see why in a bit.

Step 2

Open your Mail app, not in fullscreen for the very same reason.

You should now see something similar to this:

Step 3

Now drag-and-drop email you want to create event from to the preferred time slot and Voila!

I don’t know for how long this has been available, and I have never came accross it anywhere on internet, so I thought it would be a good idea if I share it with you. I hope it will help you by making your life a little bit easier and save some cash from extra apps that will eventually charge you for a feature like this, also from yet one more account etc.

Let me know your thoughts and/or your way of doing it.
