Workflow increases if I was working on a task like "Call Suza" and have instant one-click-access to her phone number. Don't you think?
Is the software not able to manage it, or am I just not able to manage the software? Please advise!
One way is to open address book, find Suza's card and drag it's icon to the note field of the action to which it relates. You will get the name on the card (but there will be no indication that it is a link - that's a bug IMO). Later when you want the phone number, right click on the name in the note and select open with Address Book.app.
Another thing about the drag and drop that I think is a bug is that it will always give you the individual's name even for cards that are marked as companies (unless all there is is the company name). So it is not perfect yet. I am sure the Omni Gurus are not finished tinkering with links.
You can do the same thing with docs, pages, pngs, jpegs, pdfs, etc., but not with mail. Check out Curt Clifton's applescripts for a way to do that: http://www.rose-hulman.edu/~clifton/software.html
