More than just a task list
Manage your grocery list then send it to your girlfriend, via email, or github if you like. Why not assign all the emails from a particular sender to the same task list?
Its document inception
The documents in Dessk are so versatile you can use them in the whole system.
Because everything in Dessk is the same kind of object, that means we can wrap outside objects like Github issues, Files, even other objects and use them in your work. Its like inception but with less trumpets.
It can all be scheduled
See your emails in you calendar
I'm not sure who invented Google Calendars but they must really love Outlook. Why cant my calendar tell me to finish that email to mum?
Instead of files, everything on your Dessk is made of the same thing so you can literally put an email in your calendar to schedule it.
Plug in other services
Your email is a task list anyway so lets not treat it like a second class citizen, auto-sort your emails from your boss into a document called "work".
This means you can put a email in a task list in a document in an event to be done next tuesday.
