Integration with Contacts/Address Book

#1

I would like to see integration with Contacts/Address Book. Useful for notes about meetings (who was present)


The features we are working on right now…

Thanks Hans. Indeed something on our to-do list :slight_smile:

yep, very important point also for me. thanks


#4

I agree that integration with Contacts/Address Book would be most helpful. For me, very useful in business. The ability to carefully format such notes for contacts would be extensively used.


#5

I’d love a two way link - so that when I look at a contact in AddressBook I can see, and follow, links to the related notes in Agenda. Would be so helpful if someone - for example - calls, and I need to remind myself of previous discussions with them etc.


#6

You can create links to Agenda notes: just select the note, and choose Edit > Copy As > Agenda Link. As long as Agenda is installed, you can click the link to open up the note.


#7

Thanks - yes, I realise that, just looking forward to more integrated approach.

As well as dragging a contact into Agenda, what would be really cool would be if one started typing a name after @ and Agenda then suggested entries from Contacts.

Years ago Palm Desktop from PalmPilot did exactly that - and I’ve never come across the same, really useful, functionality in any other task manager or calendar. (According to Wikipedia - 10 years ago!)


#8

Adding my vote to integration with contact managers.

The current integration with BusyCal works well for me. Would love something similar with BusyContacts.


#9

Given the integration with the calendar, this seems like a natural fit for Agenda.

Some ideas:

  • @ tags auto suggesting contacts in the address book.
  • notes with @ tag in H1 create Agenda link in the contact card note section (akin to the Agenda link that populates in the note section of a calendar event.)

Very much looking forward to this for keeping up with details about people in meetings, etc.!


#10

Contacts integration is very much on our list.

Have ideas about linking notes to contacts and reminders. On our todo.


#11

Me too, so that the real person can be added to “Assign Person” in a note, with indexing to allow notes to be viewed by person mentioned within them, etc.

Big +1 from me as well. Getting structured people info to link with Reminders would be hugegantic.
