FAQ

Q: How can I add a link that includes a parenthesis, like http://www.test.com/types_of_apples(fruit)?

A: You have to encode the parenthesis in the URL using percent encoding. For this link, "(" should be replaced with "%28" and ")" should be replaced with "%29". So the URL to use in Todoist would be:

http://www.test.com/types_of_apples%28fruit%29

This tool makes it easy to convert your URL.
