Within Teamwork Projects, you can reply to task notification emails with a command to interact with the task without having to log in to your site.

Completing or reopening a task

  • To complete a task, reply to active task notifications with one of the following:
    • #Complete
    • #Completed
    • #Done
  • To reopen a completed task, reply to completed task notifications with one of the following:
    • #Uncomplete
    • #Reopen
    • #Open
    • #Notdone
    • #Reopened
You can also add a command and a comment at the same time. The command is processed to follow the action, and the text is added as a comment.

Reassigning tasks

  • Send #reassign @user or #assign @user as part of the reply
    • You can send multiple users @dan @peter @sam
Logging time on a task

  • Send [time] as part of the reply, for example:
    • [1h]
    • [1m]
    • [1h 25m]
    • [1.5]
    • [1:30]
  • Add any text in {} for a time log description e.g: {This is the description for the timelog}. This is an optional extra.
  • If notification email relates to a task or a comment on a task then the time is logged against that task.
  • If notification email does not relate in any way to a task the time is logged against the project.
Preventing your signature from being posted
If you add #End on a new line in a reply, it removes the signature from the reply.

You could add #End as 1px white text and space it one row above your normal email signature so no one can see it on normal emails but Teamwork.com will recognize this as the signal for of your signature.

Following or unfollowing comments
To follow only comments on a task, reply with either #commentsonly, #followcomments or #onlyfollowcomments.

Reply to an email with #unfollow in the body and you'll be removed as a follower from that item.

Ignoring auto-responder replies
If you have an auto-reply enabled, it will automatically be ignored and won't be posted as a comment on the task.
