Create links between tasks for non-linear connections
I'd like to have a place for hyperlinks that connect tasks across the whole Task Coach system. This would make organizing work more like a non-linear concept-web type of thing within the existing Task Coach system.
It would be great to have a way to view a list (or ideally a visual web) of all the other tasks that are linked to a selected one). But the first step is just to include a hyperlink connected to one task that can go to another task.

I think this can be done through tags.
Same as above just smaller (I think). I've got the same Task in two Projects, so with a link the task would appear 2 times and every change is visible in each project
Using links so that other tasks can cross reference one another is a good idea and would work in tandem with the requests for each task to have a unique identifier number that would be auto generated by task coach ( and perhaps a second, user generated identifier number, to allow the cross referencing of Task Coach tasks to other software applications.
Thus a Task Coach task has a unique unchangeable number generated when a new task is created, which could act as a URL to itself, and a second text string ( alpha numeric ) that can be tagged onto the task by the user to cross reference to other software apps.
The above 'specification' sounds a little complicated but would satisfy and unify a number of requests. A URL to start with would be great, a second number under 'task properties' dialogue perhaps )

I edited this request to emphasize the link aspect that was focused on. It otherwise wasn't totally clear.
Note that there is already the ability to have prerequisites.
