There is a "More Actions" button above each email with an option to "Add to tasks". This then adds the email to your list of tasks which appears in the bottom right of your screen. Clicking on the small arrow to the right of the task allows you to edit the options and attributes assigned to the task, for example to set a reminder or additional notes about ...

Though that would be awesome - You cannot share a Smart List. You can share a List , or numerous tasks but not a Smart List. Here is how I would do it. Search for your tag tag:grocery And either select all your task you want to Share and just share that way (I think you already know this way) The other way, which I use it , is the List. So move your ...

You could use the Task Functionality. When clicking an email, you can click more actions and then click "Add to Tasks". With tasks, you can set reminders, due dates, etc.
This is one of our top feature requests. Here's the card on the development board: https://trello.com/c/UOIrt48P
You might want to take a look at Google Notebook and Google Tasks Help (in Gmail).
Google Calendar supports SMS reminders for events in the Options section. I don't think this is available for Tasks as yet though. And yes, it worked in Europe (well, in the UK) for me.
The reason is because Google has not created any functionality in their Google Calendar APIs for doing anything with tasks. Without an API for this, applications would have to screen-scrape, which is a pain and is inconvenient. Many developers want such an API, so such functionality will probably be added soon. Until then, there's not much you can do. ...
Most of the solutions I saw here were pretty technical. Here is one that is really easy to do. You could use this Zap to automatically create Trello Cards from Google Docs spreadsheet rows. The idea is that once you make this Zap, you can paste your CSV into the a Google Doc and run it through into Trello. I think there is a limit of about 200 items per ...

I've created and shared a Google Spreadsheet which you can use to import multiple entries. It's geared towards a Scrum product backlog, but you could customise it if you want. Details here: http://www.littlebluemonkey.com/blog/online-scrum-tools-part-3-upload-existing-product-backlog-into-trello/
LiquidPlanner seems quite good. It has a nice feature that shows the spread of task completion times based on past performance. The again there is always FogBugz ;-) Neither are free, although FogBugz does have various free for academic use options.
Evernote is a pretty solid note-taking web app (also has mobile versions and a desktop client).
You could do this with Toodledo. It would use Twitter as an intermediary. You can create a Toodeldo task by sending a DM on Twitter. You can send Tweets (including DMs) via SMS.
My two cents: If you need SMS reminders for tasks, then your task-management system could probably benefit from some additional thought. You should be consulting and rearranging your daily task list multiple times per day. I use Gcal and Gtasks, assigning tasks to the day when I expect to actually do them ("do" dates, not "due" dates). On today's list, I ...
No, this isn't currently possible. (support posting) The quickest way I've found is to create a filter that applies a label to these emails. Then, I am able to open up the label, use keyboard shortcuts to navigate and open an email, and then shift+t will create a task for the opened email. Use a keyboard shortcut to get to the next email, rinse and ...
