Creating a task from a message in the RingCentral app
desktop and web | RingCentral app

The RingCentral app makes it easy to create a new task from a message post in any of your conversations. You don’t need to copy the post and paste it in the new task description dialog input as it is automatically filled. This reduces the time for you to create tasks when the post already contains the information needed.

2. Select a conversation from the conversation list.
3. Hover your mouse over the message that you want to create as a task.
4. Click the More icon at the far right of the message.
