How can I get clickable links in the notes of a task?


I believe before the latest updates if you put a link in the notes section, for example a link to an Evernote note, the link would be clickable and it would open the link in the Evernote app. Now, when I put a link in the notes, the syntax gets changed to an emoticon because the link is written as evernote:/// The first colon and first forward slash get changed making the link unclickable.

Please advise if this is an issue or if there is something I am doing wrong.

Thank you.

Hi Bryan,

Does this issue occur with other types of links, such as websites etc? Or does this only happen with Evernote? Evernote has always been an issue though, as we do not fully support it.

Which browser are you using, and does using another one result in the same issue?

It doesn't appear to happen with any other links except Evernote. In browsers it works fine, it's only on the iOS apps (iPhone and iPad) that this problem occurs.

No, we do not have any news on this. Most links should be working though, it appears some are having issues.

+1. I am also seeing this on my iOS devices.

I have this problem as well -- with any link. I use Chrome. It would be GREAT to get this fixed! Thanks
