How can I link or add a contact to a Task?



I'd like to be able to create a task, say, "Call Dr. Flowers" and be able to have the contact name be clickable (and take me to the iOS Contacts app) or have an Optional Field from where I can select the Contact.

Is there a way to embed contact info, as above or some other way?

Hello Ed,

That's unfortunately not possible, but we may consider adding such option in the future.

For now, as a workaround, you can enter the related phone number into a task note and iOS will make the number clickable (in the task note) so you can dial it right-away.

I'm surprised that something so basic and integral isn't already incorporated into a product that's as slick and well-designed as yours. Please make this a priority. It will be very appreciated!
