allow link to local files
I'd like to be able to paste links to local files, to open, e.g., a specific word file when I click on the link.
Don't display just a link, but an icon that indicates theres a file linked to the task. Clicking on the icon will open the file.
Adding dropbox intergration would be nice to :)
... dropbox integration, like Nozbe do.
Dropbox would be VEEEEERRRRRY NICE!
Hyperlink to file on computer. Yes please!!
So many tasks have to do with documents - this would be fantastic.
... box.com, please.
if it could link to a cloud document, yes. Linking to a local document and then viewing it on iphone/android or another computer would be file not found error
Google Drive/SkyDrive, etc
I'm down for this, too -- I'd love some Dropbox integration and links to local filesystem, too...
I vote for skydrive :-)
I agree with Tommy; linking to cloud file services makes absolute sense; linking to local files is rather pointless if you use Todoist on more than one device - like most people probably do.
In the meantime, you can simply attach a file to a task, which - just like linking to a cloud file - makes it accessible from any device.
I do all my work documentation in OneNote, so being able to link to local files is a must. At the moment pasting a link to OneNote looks like this:
Pasting it into an email or wherever it looks like a normal hyperlink. I don't need integration with OneNote or anything, just the ability to put in links to local files!
hi . This is a reason I purchased premium account. I thought that this was possible. Now, I'm considering returning the money. Please, do it within 30 days - you will keep me as a customer.
Unfortunately, links to local files may not be available within the next 30 days. If you wish to receive a refund, please send us the order reference ID of your payment.
As previously mentioned, it would be good to link to anything you/we want (e.g. file, onenote, lotus notes, etc.) - just a simple indication/function to put link in place and put anything underit so system will recognize it.
love the idea of linking to local files. i know i could use that something serious!
I may be wrong, but I don't think you CAN link to local files. It's a web browser security issue. (doh)
Yes please, especially for dropbox
Dropbox would be awesome, google drive or skydrive would be great too
I'd like to have this functionality but I suspect that Bryan is right about security! If it's not possible with local files due to security, maybe this thread should be closed.
I'm not sure what people who are voting links to drive want exactly. Something like
"Review https://docs.google.com/etc/d/letters&numbers/edit (file name)"
does the trick for me in windows and android.
Agree with both Bryan and Wez.
1. Making links to files stored on the internet shouldn't be a problem. I use frequently links to my dropbox files (basically all my useful current files) using the "share dropbox link" command and getting something like:
2. Making links to local files on a computer hard disk is another story. I wonder if in Windows this can be done at all - at least if one wants to have clickable links. One can, however, copy the file location by clicking SHIFT+RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON on the filename (in Windows Explorer or similar) and using the "Copy as path" option. The path can then be pasted into any application. But, as mentioned, it's not clickable. So again one needs to copy/paste... to reach the file back from the application.
