I cannot dial directly telefonnumbers which are noted down in my tasks


Android 4.2.2 Samsung
Outlook 2010 or Thunderbird
That's the only thing what I'am missing because I'm very often in the car. I can do that for example if I sync with googletasks or CompanionLink.
Otherwise it's a great simple to use and helpful tool.

Hello Dieter,

You've mentioned Outlook and Thunderbird, please clarify - are you adding the task or note through Outlook or Thunderbird, are you sending the task via email? How exactly do you add the number that it's inaccessible as a clickable/dialable number through our Android app? And what version of our app are you using?

Best regards,

thank you for your fast reply
I'm using Android App Todoist 2.0.11
I tried different ways.
1.) Todoist for Windows -> I create a new task with different inputs for the phonenumber +49 7473 7877 (that's Germany) or +4974737877 or only 07473 7877
2.) Outlook Add-In -> I made the same inputs for a new task
3.) Outlook -> I wrote an email to myself and add this email to "Add Todoist" -> I see the header of my Mail
In the past I used campanionLink to sync my tasks from outlook to Android. In Android I see the phonenumber (blue colored) as a dialable number. So I have the possibility to dial direct to the corresponding person in the task.
I handle a lot of different projects and need normally some subtasks to each project. Outlook ist that not very comfortable for that.

Are you adding these numbers within the note of the task? As this is the only place where numbers will become clickable. Please confirm if this is the case.

Hello Brendon,
yes, that's it. Up to now, I test the programm and notes are only avaiable in the premium version.
I think I will book.

many thanks
