Integrate MLO more closely with OneNote or EverNote
A lot of people use Evernote or OneNote because they're much more than just text capture. Rather than try to recreate something like this, how about making it easier to use them from MLO.
Both have URL links to notes and notes can be fairly easily viewed as HTML. How about a way to create a new linked note from MLO or generate a task in MLO from a note (you can do this with OneNote: note->outlook task->MLO). They could be viewed in MLO (some features might be missing), then use a link to open the real app for editing the note.

Any update on this?
Specially on Android it would be ideal to have MLO opening the onenote app and not the browser when clicking on a onenote link.
In general a closer relation between onenote and MLO would make project management a breeze.
Please make it happen

You should really consider Evernote integration. More powerful integration and not just the file: or evernote: functions.

I would like to have integration with Evernote and use one of notepad as one of inbox source

You can currently easily link Evernote (and probably Onenote) to a MLO task.
Just right-click an Evernote, hold down Ctrl and click 'Copy note link'. This will copy the 'evernote://' style link and not the 'https://'; style link.
Then paste the link in the task notes, and add 'file:' to the start of the link. Now it's clickable and links straight back to the Evernote note! :)
You can also add yourself an automatic formatting rule to add an Evernote icon to anything that contains the text 'evernote:///'. It works great.

IMO the simplest approach is to handle links like onenote:https:// the same way web links are handled, i.e. highlight them and execute on clicking. In this way, a OneNote user will be able to jump from any MLO task to any paragraph in OneNote.

For me I just need a simple way to link a note in a MLO task to a note in OneNote (or Evernote).
Ideally by selecting some text in the MLO note, right-click and choose Link to.. which opens a sub-menu on mouse-over to show the programs MLO can link to that I have previously selected in a new tab under Tools, Options, 'General Application Options' (e.g. new tab with tickboxes for Outlook, Onenote, Excel, Word, Evernote, 'own program1', 'own program2' with some hypertext link edit box for these, with Dwight's handy hints in the forum to help me complete). This underlines the selected text to show it is a hyperlink and prompts me to select the note or task, or edit the link to my chosen external 'note'.
Since MLO is not a note tool, it definitely needs an easy way to link to any other note tool or document in a way that does not need a degree in computer science to work out; or, more importantly, does not distract me from creating or administering my tasks. Having to wade through convoluted syntax and edit hypertext strings is not really helping me get: My Life Organized.

You could make it work just like RTM and Evernote does http://blog.rememberthemilk.com/2013/05/manage-your-evernote-reminders-with-remember-the-milk/
that is, if a note in evernote is marked as a reminder, it goes to MLO. Also, that ask has a link to the evernote-note inside the MLO note field. That's what rememberthemilk does.
Only think missing would be to sync the tags in evernote with the contexts in MLO. rememberthemilk and evernote does not do this. With shared tags, MLO and evernote would be a match made in heaven.

Is it possible to create a macro using Onetastic macroland macros for syncing OneNote tasks to MLO (my life organised) tasks so that when I complete a task in 1 program, they get completed in the other. I love MLO and OneNote and would love for them to talk to each other.

Hi please add this urgently as this is very important - need to be able to link tasks from OneNote to MLO just like OneNote to Outlook and when task is ticked off in either OneNote or MLO it should show up as ticked off in the other. Please make this happen.
Hi please add this fast - don't need anything more urgently than this - should be able to have MLO and OneNote tasks talking to each other directly and not go through hyperlinks to the web app and should sync seamlessly on android also. Please help with this. This will make it a perfect workflow.
I'm using both OneNote and Evernote; any kind of integration would be appretiated.
MLO+onenote would be great!!
MLO with OneNote would be great...
I live in Onenote but I manage my work with MLO...
Please integrate MLO with Evernote

I need MLO+OneNote
Please integrate MLO with Evernote

I would like to use EverNote as my inbox and have MLO just occasionally ping it and create tasks from new notes (perhaps with specific tags).

Dwight, you are correct. It should be simple enough to add the ability to link to HTML addresses or OS paths, including links to entire Office documents. Those who do not mind exposing their Evernote note can link to an HTML version, although I am not sure if Android will open it in a browser or the app. For those of us who rely on the extensive UIs offered by the Windows versions of MLO and Evernote, can use the other method.
Creating MLO notes from Evernote sounds like a different set of functionality, and all I am saying, is that as step one, perhaps we can get at least the one way linking. I would even settle for copy and paste linking, as long as I could quickly get from one to another once the MLO task and the Evernote note are created and linked.
Roberto, I would have a problem with what you are proposing because it makes the linkage between Evernote and MLO specific to Windows. Suppose I create a note on Evernote on Windows and then create a task on MLO on Windows that's linked to the Evernote. Evernote is going to promptly replicate the note to the copy of Evernote on my phone, and MLO is going to promptly replicate the task to the copy of MLO on my phone, and there in the task is going to be a linkl but the link isnt going to do anything. If I want to see the linked note I am either going to have to guess and do trial-and-error until I find it, or I'm going to have to run home and do it on my desktop. It would be easier for me to accept this if Evernote did not have a solution but they do! the HTML link, which works perfectly well whether clicked in MLO from Windows or Android. This solution is not for confidential information but hey, so few solutions these days offer reasonable privacy. . . .
