Todoist help doesn't include other method of creating links in tasks
Todoist help says to create links in the following format:
After running into a bug using this format, I searched the Support questions and found links can be created in this format:
Either the help should be updated to reflect this or the following bug needs filed. (Or both. ;) )
BUG - Ending with a parentheses in link text results in that ending parentheses not being made clickable.
1. Create a link that includes parentheses:
http://google.com/ (Google (home page))
That "Google (home page)" is the link text (clickable).
"Google (home page" is the link text (clickable). This is aesthetically displeasing and is a bug as follows the format provided in the help. Note: The ending parentheses is displayed, but is not clickable.
http://google.com/ (Google ()
Results in "Google (" being made a link.
http://google.com/ (Google ))
Results in "Google" being made a link (leaving out the closing parentheses).

thank you very much for your report. I've been able to reproduce this bug and will forward it to the developers.
Indeed, there are currently two help-tips (#19 and #21) explaining both ways of adding links. I will address this issue as well.
For now, as a workaround, please use the method described in tip #19 so if you create a link to Google with an inner parentheses, please type (for example):
A link to "Google (home page)":(google.com)
Sorry for the inconvenience.
