    Now we need to tap on the 'Messages' icon.
    In this example, it's at the bottom of the screen. It is a white chat box with 3 green horizontal lines in the middle. This will open up the messages. We want to show you how we can add or save a text message as a task.

    Tap on a contact to open the message history and find the message you want to save as a task.
    If we don't have time to reply to a message but it's important, we can save it as a task, and the task is to reply to this message. For example, if we don't have time now, but we might have time in a few hours to reply this message, we can save it using the 'My tasks' application on the HTC One M8.

Questions and Answers

Hi, I created a recurring task using the process described in your tutorial (I did this before reading the tutorial). It created a task called "reply message later" which I now can't edit or delete?

Can you help me to delete or edit this task? I am using a HTC M8 One with the native calendar widget. The task was a reminder of my phone bill.
