The Gmail Gadget is severely underpowered since it ONLY allows the ability to add tasks. Podio is SUCH a versatile app I would love to see the option to add contacts, events, even app-specific functions.
That said, there are 2 major issues with the gadget as it stands....
The Gadget captures the email body copy, but murders all the formatting. Most of the tasks I create from Gmail require the formatting to be intact. A big blob of copy is basically useless to me. Please make the gadget capture at LEAST the line breaks from the email (still waiting on robust text editing across the board in Podio...).
There is no reference link BACK to the original email. A lot of times I'll need to refer back to the original email to review the chain of emails that came before it. The task in Podio is basically a blob of copy with no reference to the original.
