Open Dynalist links in the desktop application (not in a browser!)

answered

#1

Is it just me or is there really no option (like in WorkFlorry) where you can decide that the internal links always should open in the desktop app and not as a tab in your default browser?


#2

That’s correct. If you’re already in the desktop app, Dynalist links will open in the desktop app. Not if you’re clicking on Dynalist links in your browser. Care to share your use case?

Nevertheless, I think it’s something we should work on though, i.e. register a dynalist:// protocol with the OS. Not sure if we want to always hijack http(s)://dynalist.io and display in the desktop app. Might be undesirable for some people.

Dear Erica,

Thank you for your answer. What I really hope could be implemented is that I get to chance to insert links from Dynalist into for example Evernote or a Word document and then when I click on the link in Evernote or Word document the link will open directly in the Dynalist desktop app (and not the web browser). The lack of this core feature is the only reason why I haven’t already emigrated from WorkFlorry to Dynalist.

PS: I’m not sure what to make of the following question “Care to share your use case?” ?

I see!

You already answered it. I was asking under what circumstances you would find the dynalist:// links useful. You said in other apps like Word or Evernote.

I searched a bit and didn’t find a feature request for this. Do you want to create one yourself?

(I found one about iOS deep linking, which is similar, but that’s a terminology for iOS apps only)

Yes, I would really like that a feature request for an dynalist://-option for “open links in desktop version only” would be submitted to your team developers. Thank you! :smile:

You can do that by directing posting here: https://talk.dynalist.io/c/features

That way you can also gather interest from other users and talk about it :slight_smile:
