Doing calls and sms directly out of the android-app


Therefore the app has to identify telephone-numbers and open automatically the phone/sms-surface the same way like it identifies web-adresses and opens the web-browser.

there was a separate thread for this request that was changed from 'new' to 'completed' status but I can not dial out from Todoist on my android.

if this is now a completed request please do a video tutorial so that tech newbies like me can figure out how to use the new feature.

update - The dial out works from 'notes' in the Premium version of Todoist.

It would be nice to have this also work from the "task" line too.

If the developers can implement this feature without needing to read my contacts, like identifying a sequence of numbers as a phone number, then I'm all for it. But I'd prefer the Todoist app requiring as few permissions as possible.

Just my 2 cents.

Hello Bailey,

Thia feature is actually already implemented. It works only within task's notes (and therefore is Premium-only).

It does not read or access any of your personal information. It just analyzes what you type in and if it looks like a phone number, it will link it so that you can tap on it and dial the number.

Best regards,
