InboxVudu for Gmail (beta) is a free Chrome extension to automatically create to-do list from your important emails. The list will show the tasks that need attention. For example, if somebody asks you to send documents, schedule a meeting, asks some question, etc., this extension will automatically create the to-do list of those emails. This way, you don’t have to open your Gmail account again and again to check for important emails and reply to those emails. This extension will remind you of the important tasks that you need to finish.
Apart from this, it also creates the list of Follow Ups. That means it creates the lists of the tasks of those emails that you send to people. The extension first analyses your Inbox and Sent emails, and then generates the lists of important tasks and tasks that you might want to follow up. Moreover, this extension automatically updates the list of tasks and follow-ups when you get new emails.
The screenshot above shows the pop up of this extension with the list of important tasks.

Other Key Features of this Email to To Do List Extension are:
- When a particular task is done, you can mark it as resolved, to remove it from the list.
- Its extension icon shows the total number of important tasks pending for you.
- You can also delete any task from the list.
- Option to Reply to a particular task is also available. However, this doesn’t mean that you can reply to that particular email directly from the pop-up. Instead of that, clicking on Reply option will open that email in a new tab so that you can reply.

InboxVudu for Gmail works very well and technology used to create to-do list from important emails is also good. However, it still needs improvement as few of my sent and Inbox mails that were important were not added in the to-do list. It might happen because of the keywords used in those emails weren’t recognized by this extension as important. Still, the overall performance of this extension is good and I can recommend you to try it.
