Maybe this is not possible, but figured I’d ask after searching the related, but outdated posts.
Evernote links that open the app on a device instead of in-browser have the format “evernote:///view/12345678”. Putting this in to HTML of a task description as below causes a can’t parse xml, can’t save task error with the Asana API.
<a href=\"evernote:///view/12345/\">Open In App</a>
We have been able to do this successfully with Microsoft ToDo and Todoist so far and wondering if it’s possible to get a clickable in-app note link for Evernote with a task description and if so how via the API.
Thanks in advance.
Unfortunately it won’t work in Asana.
FYI for general reference in creating links, you’d need to follow the guidelines in the API docs under Writing Rich Text > Links. You can’t just put a normal
<a> HTML tag as Asana’s rich text is not regular HTML.
That being said, even if you can get it to save, Asana prefixes all links with
https:// so your link would end up as
https://evernote://view/12345 which is obviously not want you want and won’t work properly.
On my Mac, I use a little app called ‘PopClip’ that allows clicking on a text string and treating it like a hyperlink. I created an Asana custom field for storing EN App links. I use PopClip to click on Evernote App Links in Asana, which takes me directly to the note in Evernote.
It’s not ideal, because PopClip is a Mac app, not available on windows. But it works for me.
