    Start a new note in Samsung note. Write down a phone number, web address, email address, etc. Save it. You should now see the info outlined in blue if the phone recognizes it. Hover the Spen over it. It should give you option(s) with a little icon and just tap on it. I guess this is Samsung's baked in version of Action Memo.

    I tried it thrice but no options while hovering s-pen. What options do you have?

    Half baked, lol. But thanks for the info. Finally worked for me. Even though I'll probably stick with Action Memo, this might come in handy at some point.

    I couldn't get it to work & stopped trying once I got Action Memo to work. However, I just noticed that Fr0gburp3r said to save it first (just save, you don't have to close it, just not be in edit mode), and then the dial, email & web functions will show when you hover the pen over each.

    First save:



    Then hover (phone dial example):

    Worked for me with email address. I really wanted the function of saving something to the calendar but so far that doesn't work. And if it can't read my writing, it doesn't work, but that is my problem not really the phone's.

    These topics each discuss getting back S Note & Action Memo.

    (Any shot the mods could combine them, and possibly pin the topic? Please??)

    I can't get it to work either, I'm thinking it's because I have an old version of snote that I side loaded so I could have action memo.

    I just edited an action memo (transferred from my Note 4) by adding a url to it exactly as I did to the new notes that didn't get a hot link or options; and of course the url immediately became a hot link that worked. I really miss the action memos!

    It doesn't need S Note or Action Memo. It built in Samsung Memo.

    I only got it to work once for a phone number. I can't pin it to my home page, so it doesn't matter. I'll stick with action memo

    You need the one from the mirror and don't update it

    As far as I can tell the only way to send a text is by going through the phone app, menu and then "send message".
    Thanks for posting this.

    Yeah I updated in error and I lost the action memo feature so I had to uninstall and install the older version again.

    This works for me. You just have to make sure that you save the note first. Be careful not to actually touch the screen with the Spen, just hover and you will be able to dial, email, etc.

    ^ Samsung Notes only "Links To" phone, email & internet.

    Action Memo's "Link to Action" opens the following:

    - Phone
    - Contacts
    - Message (*texts*)
    - Internet
    - Email
    - Map
    - Task



    As well as Set Reminders:

    It's been a while since I've used the old Action Memo. From a functionality/ feature standpoint what's the difference?

    Never mind, I guess I didn't refresh

    It also requires you to save, then reopen the app before those three functions work. With Action Memo, all eight of the options are available as you write the info.

    I think it's better the way they have it now, in that it can recognize what was entered, but it's too bad they took away some of the other features

    Sandra, I noticed something on your screenshot. Are you using Nova Launcher? I’ve gotten Action Memo to work. Unfortunately some items within it like Easy Chart are not working. However, I just noticed your screenshot shows you don’t have the option to pin the Action Memo to your home page. I am missing it, too. I vaguely remember there was an issue pinning Action Memos to the home page if you were using Nova Launcher on the Note 4. I’ve been searching all over to find out if that’s why I can pin it or is it because I downloaded the Action Memo Shortcut. I have a widget on my home page as a work around, but would still love the ability to pin it. Do you know if that’s the issue? Also were you able to get items like Easy Chart to work? Thanks in advance for your help.
