You can link to documents, launch webpages or applications, send emails, and call phone numbers from Nirvana. To do this:
- Add the link or number to your notes
- Make sure your notes are expanded.
- Click the link to launch your action.
You can see the process in the video below. Though it shows the mobile app, this feature is also available in the web app.
Here are a few tips to help you make the most of different types of links:
Link to web content
Nirvana assumes you’re using http or https as a protocol in your links. If you need to access another protocol, such as FTP, make sure it’s written at the beginning of the link.
Link to files stored online
These work just like web links. If you use a cloud-drive type service (e.g. Google Drive, OneDrive, etc), create a link to the file or folder and add it to the notes section of your item. Click the link and the file or folder will open.
Open other applications
You can launch other apps by using custom URL schemes. Each app requires a slightly different type of link, so check what format it uses. Next, create the link in the other application and add it to your item notes. Make sure the app is installed on your device, then click the link to access it.
Make phone calls
Click directly on the number to make your call via mobile phone or any click-to-call extension installed on your web browser. Phone numbers are clickable with the following formats: 1-123-123-1234, 1 123 123 1234, (123) 456-7890, 123 456 7890, or 123-456-7890. You can also use dots in place of dashes.
To launch a blank email, add the address to the notes. Click the link to launch your email client.
