I often have tasks that involve calling or mailing someone and I usually paste addresses or phone numbers into the notes so that I don’t need to leave OF when actioning the task. It would be very useful if tasks could be linked to people (new field or fields?) and the details for those people drawn from my Contacts. If others agree with this I will raise it as a feature request
I’ve written two Keyboard Maestro macros that simplify this for now: the first copies the highlighted name, opens Address book and finds the name … the second copies the phone number, closes Contacts, and then pastes it in parens at the end of the task’s line.
Until a solution is baked into OF, this works very quickly and easily for me.
I’m unable to get this to work either in Mavericks.
When I drag the contact onto the notes field, I see what appears to be a link icon. When I drop the contact, nothing is generated. Individual fields don’t appear to be drag-and-drop capable, so other than simple copy-and-paste, how is this working for you guys?
