There are no shortcuts, menu items or toolbar buttons to create a reminder from a message, so how do you create one and what’s the quickest way?
The quickest way to create a Reminder from an email message is this:
- Open Reminders and have the Reminders window or your preferred List open next to your Mail window
- Switch to Mail and grab the message
- Drag to the Reminders window and drop in the next open slot.
That’s it; you’ll get a reminder note with the message subject as the note text and a link to the original message.
Note that it seems you cannot drag parts of a message to Reminders. If you want only part of a text as a Reminders note, then you’ll need to use the Command-C and Command-V shortcuts.
