Is it possible to make a task including contact info?
Please clarify, you'd like to create a task that automatically has contact information? Such as using data from your contacts app?
We will consider this for future updates. We are working on Sharing, which will allow you to share with other Todoist users.
Yes it would be nice to have an easy way to attach a phone number for call a contact task.
You can actually include a phone number within a task note and it will be clickable and allow you to dial the number when you tap on it.
Is there meanwhile a better way / easier solution? Turn an outlook contact to a task like I can turn an email to a task for example - without copy an paste the name and the number manually. Would be great!
I want to make a call-list for a longer car-drive for example.
Sadly, not at this time. Please feel free to add it in as a feature request in the Votebox https://todoist.com/Vote/.
Thank you Clyde,

Do you think it´s better to create a new vote with another headline (without android, it´s for ios too) - like: turn contacts into tasks - and call direct from the task
Yes, I would suggest to create a new thread. Users search for this suggestions by keyword and by reading headlines. Without having the right details, they might not vote for it.
Has the request to make a contact a task been added? If I right-click on a contact name there is an option "Add Todoist". When I click on that nothing happens.
Please tell me - on what platform or browser are you doing this and in what app or website are you right-clicking on your contact?
I am doing this within outlook 2010, going to contacts, and right clicking on a particular contact.
Thanks for clarifying. In this case, that's the option for adding emails as tasks which for some reason seems to also be included in other places when our Outlook plugin is installed. We'll look into this as well into adding such option in the future :-)
@David Trey, I tried adding a phone number to a task such as 555/234-1234 but it was not clickable. Does it have to be in a particular format to be clickable? (555)123-1234?
Yes, I believe 123-456-7891
