    Just didn't offer as many linking options and more difficult to do. I downloaded the S-note app to the demo model at best buy to get those options, but they didn't work as well.
    I'm not sure if this would help you, but I just use the Google on tap feature to link to actions.

    Oh no not the same.. Did you use action memo link on the Note 5?

    I could be taking a Note while on the phone, write down an address. I link an action to navigate and it pulls up that address in maps for me.

    You can also call a phone number you write down, add a contact, send an email and several other things.

    I think I've got the gist of it here:

    What is Google's Now on Tap and how does it work? - Pocket-lint

    Using contextual function?

    Write your note, press the home button, and select an action. Should work the same as action memo.

    I believe I can do similar things.

    I can't even do it on my Note 5 with Google On Tap with an Action Memo or S-Note.

    On the Note 7 you can get a "link to action" but it isn't as much as what was on the action memo.

    True. But, I still use the s-pen to write the note it's just converted into typed text. So, to me it ends up being the same thing just in a neater package.

    Oh, mine are all handwritten. Adding contacts, calling numbers, sending a text, email etc.

    Not close to the same as Action Memo. I tried several times to dial a phone number and it could not convert my handwriting to text. Action Memo works every time with less steps. The side loaded s memo works just fine. I'll wait and see what this pop up is that Samsung Notes is getting next month.

    Not sure it's going to work for me. When I try to link to a task it wants conflicting permissions with the calendar.
    I see the same thing. I went back through all the other options and all the other actions worked just fine. I'm going to have to live with it this way and hope for a change. The main ones I use are phone, contact, and email. Each of which are working perfectly. I'll take it for now.
    I got linking to Tasks to work! Try this:

    1. If you have an open Action Memo, save it (one time only).
    2. Go to Application Manager
    ..- Find S Note
    ..- Force Stop
    ..- Scroll down to Permissions and allow Calendar

    The message "Screen overlay detected...." was due to trying to change S Note's permissions while having an open Action Memo. When there is no open memo, before turning that permission on, that won't be an issue. Subsequent Action Memo links to Tasks work fine.

    No more action memo? - Page 2 - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    Yes I used the link. I haven't installed any other S note. I have the pre-loaded version of Samsung notes still

    edit: nevermind, I do have a version of s notes installed. Didn't realize it was on there already.

    Thanks, this worked for me. Still not sure what the devs were think when they removed Action Memo. I'm waiting to see what the replacement is like in next month's update to Samsung Notes. At this point though, it will not make a lot of difference as long as S Notes keeps working. It will be interesting I believe.

    Haha, my theory is that the devs/programmers responsible for the invaluable S Notes up and quit, and Samsung had to grab some high school kid (tho odds are they could have done a better job) to throw "something" together to get the great "All-In-One" Samsung Notes app out the door by release date!

    I'm not sure if it's been referenced before... but Erica Griffin in her Note 7 review commented on action notes and said to sideload a specific version to use but do not update when asked because it will not work then. She also said she was told action memo will finally be updated eventually to work with Note 7.She recommended version 5.1.0 at the 14 minute mark.
