Ability to create a note when adding with Smart Add

ali.aliev says:
I'd like to add a note WHILE I'm doing a Smart Add. I usually have a few thoughts relevant to the task, which I wright down immediately. I have to save the task, than find it in the list again and add a note, which is inconvenient.

Yup, this is now possible with the new Remember The Milk.

Just type "//" at the end of Smart Add, followed by your note contents.

Hope this helps!

This is a must ! How are people doing it now ? It's a hassle to find the task again and add a note... Smart add should support noting... Thanks RTM !

Notes are added in at least 50% of my Tasks and the current method is abysmal. As a note is associated with the Task then making us enter a Task only to have to find it again so that we can finish it by entering the note seems as though notes are treated as an afterthought when, actually, they are part of the Task itself. Going through this rigmorole every time is a total waste of our time. This desperately needs a quick method of entry.

One of the reasons that I'd like to be able to add notes with Smart Add is so that I can use the import email address to send a batch of tasks and add the notes at the same time.

This is critical when using the android app to enter phone numbers that can be dialed.

Not being able to add a note at the lime of creating the task is a real pain and horribly inefficient. As it now stands you have to create the task, save it, refind it then add the notes. that is goofy.

Hope this is still being considered! Been using RTM for only a few days and the "note" entry is already a pain and feels broken.

Please add this funktion a.s.a.p.
It is a pain and takes to much time to just add a simple note to a new task.
Thanks!

Can't you do this with the '//' syntax now?

That's correct nicholasemay - // is your Smart Add for a note!
