    Extraordinarily high-value target. Seamless task integration across email and calendar (and maybe something like a markdown checkbox in a Drive file?) would be a killer feature for workflow/productivity and is a key missing tool from G migration. Bonus points for specific lifecycle models (customizable would be easiest I suppose) a la Redmine, Scrum-like (StatusHero), Pomodoro/scheduling, etc..

    ***DECENT TEMPORARY SOLUTION*** : It would likely be lower effort to simply allow specific labels to be "pinned" to the RHS of the mail UI with specific enumeration of messages. This could easily "evolve" towards a task list if presented in a checklist form. For example, I create a "Tasks" label and "pin" it to the RHS. (RHS options are currently somewhat limited to User; Contacts; Calendar; and Security views; this would help make better use of this space.) The subject line of each email with that label would then be listed under that RHS "view", possibly in chronological order. Going off of the GMail tasks view, there would then be specific options for those entries to a) check them off the list (e.g., remove the label); or b) jump to the original message.
