I have an agenda file with todo tasks where each task (and its subtasks) have an associated workspace folder or file, somewhere I actually do the work. To keep things organized I want this to be an inheritable property of the task and I want to have an abbreviation for the root workspace folder, eg
#+LINK: workspace file:~/workspace/%s * TODO Write book :PROPERTIES: :Work: [[workspace:subfolder/.]] :END:
The above link though is not followed with
org-open-at-point, rather it thinks workspace:subfolder is a heading in the file and asks me to create it. Replacing the link with file:~/workspace/subfolder/. with or without square brackets works. Can I make my link abbreviation work as a property value?
