So, I want to be able to edit the name of that link – change Order 0059070011 to meaningful text — and assign tags to it, so I can remember that “oh, that’s the email with my license for blah blah blah”, and I can discover it in Spotlight by searching for the relevant tags. (Many companies send emails with useless subjects.)
Sorry if this is a duplication of other requests. I browsed and found nothing. To me, this request fills an obvious feature gap.
regarding changing a bookmark’s name. I don’t recall someone else asking, and if they did it’s not a FAQ. I logged the feature request internally a couple of years before we launched. And it remains in the issue database, well surrounded.
Related features: After a hooked file’s name changes, Hook presents the updated filename. That handles a huge % of the cases. We also intend Hook to update dynamically when it detects other kinds of items’ name change (e.g., OmniFocus or Things tasks), but that is obviously trickier. These features don’t handle the cases of read-only items like emails and web pages.
Tags stuff is discussed elsewhere on the forum and internally here.
While automatic updating of hooked filename (and other) changes would be very nice to have, some rudimentary editing of a Hook link should be available.
I’ll often make a calendar entry that contains “TBA” in the title. I’ll link this entry back to a master document. At some subsequent point the “TBA” is removed from the calendar item name. However, it (the “TBA”) persists in hook links. At least with basic editing tools I could remove this string Hook’s item name.
Liikewise, allowing some basic manual sorting the presented list of Hook’s links would be very useful to me. Just a simple drag to sort, or key-arrow combo…
