Hotlink Call/email from task

If I put a phone number in a task, and then look at it on my phone, why cant I click on the number and have it call?

Curious! This feature works for me if I add the phone number in the note of the task. Can I ask how you’re adding the number?


Hi, I have the same problem. I want the hotlink to be in the title of the task so I can call it immediately from the top level without having to add it to Notes. Is this possible?

I’m sorry, but OmniFocus doesn’t currently support links in task titles. Only notes enable the “data detection” that turns things like phone numbers and URLs into clickable links.

If this is something important to your workflow, we’d love to hear more details about why (and why the notes field doesn’t work for you in this case); you can reach us at
