Working out the URL feature

(closed account) says:
Once thing that I discovered about the URL feature is that you can link task to an online document. . I tested it in Google Docs, but it should work the same for Zoho, Think free , X Drive, and other online document solutions.
How does it work ?

1. Create a task ( or edit an existing task)
2.Create an online document ( or open an existing doc).
3. Copy that Docs URL into the URL field in your task

Viola! that document is linked to to that task.
the uses are near infinite.
* want richer, detailed notes? Link to a word processing document.
*want to track expenses for a particular task? link to an online spreadsheet and update as you go along
* want to collaborate on a presentation? well, you get the idea...
A project management idea might be linking many tasks to a single document, spreadsheet or sideshow setting out a detailed road map of the project-complete with hierarchy-those famous "subtasks/sublists/etc."
I'm sure I'm just scratching the surface here..
Please post any more ideas as to how we can use this feature!

Keeping with this thread's general subject, you can also use with RTM to a great extent!

Practical example:
• You have a project in RTM, represented by the tag .setupwordpress
• You 'll be using a tag in with the same name (.setupwordpress).
• Tag all sorts of resources, tutorials, tips and overall research materials regarding setting up the wordpress software.
• Finally, define your Project Header task's URL as

Nothing but linking to a list or URLs here, but keeping it inside' dynamic bookmarking system is much easier.
Especially nice for any task/projects that involves learning/researching.

These are great ideas! I don't know why I haven't implemented them sooner.

Thanks for the tips!

Ok, maybe not so important, but I was wondering if it would be possible to set multiple addresses in the URL field...
Yes it is: put a space after each address and every address is listed and can be clicked separately.
But attention: every address must be entered with the full address, that is inclusive "http://", or it won't be recognized (that's a difference with the single url setting, which is recognized even if you forget the "http://").

You can also use for a one-click solution.
