You can send email notifications to the project and task team, or just specific people, when you
create or edit projects, tasks, messages, etc.:
And the best part is that the recipients can simply reply to a 5pm email notification,
as they reply to any other email, and their answer will be logged back into 5pm as a message!
You can also create from email Tasks, assign teams, attach files, add messages

It will automatically detect the attachments, add recipients to the Task Team and so on!
For example, you can:
- Send an email to
email@example.com to create a task
directly from email. If you include email addresses of other 5pm users (in To, CC or BCC) — they will be
added to the task team.
- You can take an existing email, from your client, for example, and create a 5pm task from it by just
forwarding it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Even more — you can also add Messages and Progress Notes directly from email!
