Link to Tasks



I want to send a link to a task around to my team, instead of a link to a project. Is that possible?

Hello Sam,

That's unfortunately not possible, but you could attach your whole team in a comment that you add in this task.

We will consider implementing this in the future, though.

Best regards,

addling the option to generate permalinks of specific tasks would be awesome.

Just wanted to put a note in a tasks saying "see also task xyz". Would highly appreciate this feature, too.

Actually it turns out that now there is such thing as "Link to task".

If you look at some of recipes at IFTTT (for example this one - https://ifttt.com/recipes/215336-put-all-your-completed-tasks-in-a-google-spreadsheet) you'll see variable {{LinkToTask}}.

Although, I still can't find any way to get this link from webinterface :(

I've tried creating a recipe that would send me a link via email after I create a task. But after I click on this link I get a message that "notes are only premium feature". :(

i tested this recipe... whats called "linktotask" is *NOT* the todoist-task-link, its the link, thats put inside the task-name, for example:

todo: http://google.com (visit google)

so http://google.com is the task link here... bad... so at all... this is not the solution ;-((

It is actually link to task - link like https://todoist.com/showTask?id=123456789

But when I click on it - I get only message that "notes are premium feature".

no it is NOT the link to the task, its the link behind the task-text, as i told you, i tested it....

We have now added the option to link to a task. To use it, simply right-click on a task and select the "Link to task" option (at the bottom of the list) :-)
