Smart LinksHarmonie SpaldingLast Updated: November 16, 2014
When discussing a task, sometimes it helps to make a reference. You might want to mention a task you’re waiting on, a project that’s in the works, a change that’s being made, or a relevant discussion.
You can do this in a Flow comment by pasting in the URL of what you’re referencing.
What you might not know is that for certain types of links, we’ll clean up that messy http-colon-slash-slash business, and turn it into something readable.
- Flow tasks get renamed as their title. This also works for Lists, Groups, Workspaces, Tags, and People
- Github.com Pull Request URLs get renamed to show their organization, repository, and Pull Request number. For example, one of my PRs turned into “metalabdesign/flow_marketing/#427”
- Any other long link will be shortened to avoid clogging up the comment thread
Sorry (not sorry) for gettin’ meta on you with that example there. Hopefully with this feature, your references will be a little easier to digest.
