I have the following capture template for TODO's

#+name: org-capture-templates
#+begin_src org :session vicarious :exports both :results output
(setq org-capture-templates
        `(("i" "TODO" entry (file+headline "" "Tasks")
             "* TODO %? %^g\n\n"
             "%(let ((link (plist-get org-store-link-plist :annotation)))"
             "     (if (string-empty-p link) "
             "         link "
             "       (concat \"Here: \" link))) ")
           :kill-buffer t)))
Every time I capture a TODO, a link to the buffer is saved in the TODO
