Print the date/time the list was printed

jfanow says:
It would be nice to have the day/date/time printed next to list name.

I print my list regularly, as I add tasks, and it's difficult to tell the most current from previous ones.

Thank you.

If you are printing your lists and they happen to be shorter than 12 items, you might want at look at PocketMod, there is a module for RTM at

You also have to make them public. :)

Thanks for the response bwente.

I actually wanted the printout of the list to be day/date/timed, not so much each task in the list.

I did click on the link above.
I am somewhat techno-challenged so publicizing the list sounds scary.
I think I would rather keep it local.

Thank again :0)

It is possible, just use greasemonkey. Greasemonkey is a firefox extension that will let you modify/customize pages. This is pretty much an ideal application for it.

Install greasemonkey, add a user script with the contents below. For more info on greasemonkey, use google. I have never written a greasemonkey script before, and figured this out in about 10 minutes. So don't be afraid, it's not too hard.

// ==UserScript==
// @name rtmprintdate
// @namespace localhost
// @include*
// ==/UserScript==

// first pick all text child elements of Headers
var allHeaders, thisHeader;
allHeaders = document.evaluate(

// then, add the date right now after all headers
for (var i = 0; i < allHeaders.snapshotLength; i++) {
thisHeader = allHeaders.snapshotItem(i); += " -- "+Date();

I posted this on your other thread, this is actually very easy. It will take you less than 5 minutes to fix, no help from the RTM team required.

However, the feature I'd really like, start dates I can't get through a greasemonkey script. If only!
