Include notes in the print view

clientcontrol says:
Sometimes it's important what's behind, so the need for task' notes appears.

I saw this idea in topics about a year before. Any news?

I would love to be able to see if a task has notes! Are you referring to actually printing the entire notes next to tasks, clientcontrol? And do you mean 'printing' to screen or actual printing on paper lists?

I would like the ability to print notes with lists...to paper and the screen. The problem right now is that I want RMilk to manage my to-do list AND help me manage projects.

When my boss asks me what I have been doing, I want to print the task out with all the supporting documentation behind the list.

Better control of printing is a place that could improve greatly.

I would like this feature as well for the same reason. I love using RTM, and I could use its awesome search features to print a weekly report for my boss (completedBefore and completedAfter). But right now the search results would create more work. I would have to duplicate what is in the notes to my boss.
Something like a flag in settings would work where users could turn off and on notes printing for lists and search results would work great for me.

I agree. Sometimes I may only have 3-4 lines of notes expanding on the task, and would love to have the option to have it print right out there in my list.

mddurda says:
Agreed; this is one of two features preventing me from adopting (and paying for) RTM as my task management solution. It would be ideal to be able to have notes print out with any list print out.

Agreed - please add an option to print on the print-out list!

I, too, have been hoping for this ability to print notes with a task list. Any news on the development on this feature?

brant.peery says:
I vote for this feature also. I will mass enter many tasks for a project and would like to be able to print the notes for the tasks that are due this week. I keep things like phone numbers or minitasks in the notes and need them to be able to complete the tasks.

I've just started using RTM and I too use the notes to expand on the task itself, and I would like to be able to print out the notes with the task when printing out a task list.

Could someone let us all know if this feature going to be introduced.

mark.gerber says:
Just started using RTM two days ago and I'm already enthusiastic about it. Printing notes with a list was one of the first things I looked for in the Help files. While I'm disappointed it's not part of the feature set, it's not a deal-breaker for me. Is there some word from the developers about whether or not it's something they plan to add?

krissy says:
Hi all, this one is on the list for the developers. Unfortunately I can't give you any indication of possible implementation. When I have news I will pass it on. We are definitely aware how popular this is.

eggotrip says:
I believe that incorporating note taking into the list itself would be a great way to advance RTM as a whole.

Few points about what I'd like to see:
1) Font/Color Alterable notes which could be expanded downward from any task
2) RTM could lock any note to always show for a task
3) The active task would always show it's expanded note field
4) You could expand/collapse all task notes at once

when you send (for example every morning at 5am) a reminder to your email inbox,
you have your list if you can print your email.

RTM wil do this for you with the right settings>reminder.

I would LOVE to see this feature added! As it is, I have to put ALL the additional info into the task line in order for it to print out, and it gets quite messy. Perhaps viewing notes underneath the tasks--expanding via a little plus sign or similar--could be an option?

We put phone #s in the notes (i.e. the task is to schedule an appointment or order something), and would like to take a printed copy so we can call while in transit. Having the notes printed is CRUCIAL to do this type of thing.

almondjoy172000 says:
It would be helpful for me to at least have a notes icon in list view to alert me a note exists for a task. When I open the task to view it, the note is visible. I just need an alert to check it. I can see how others need the ability to print for work. Maybe we all get so bogged down in wanting RTM to to be everything for us that we forget just what a great app it is and how much it does for us already. Gratitude noted. Thanks RTM! (Moto Droid)

cikkcakk says:
Same thing here... It would be awesome if we could print our task lists with all supporting notes. Another thing that I would like to mention, is that when I print a list, the individual tasks are way too close to each other on the paper and there is no room to write anything by hand. I print tasklists for my employees and they are complaining that there is no room between the tasks for them to write.

Thanks for considering my thoughts.

miredo.la says:
This is one of my biggest complaints about RTM. Right now, I only use RTM as a weekly planner. If RTM allowed for notes to be printed with my weekly to-do list, RTM would become more integrated with my daily life by another couple of notches.

One strong vote for the ability to print notes here.

My job duties keep expanding and expanding and I'm thinking I need to go to another task management tool (Co-Human, Manymoon, etc), but I REALLY know how to use RTM well. Sub tasks are not important since I have a great system for turning any task that branches on me into a Project List (pj-PROJECT HERE), so that's simple. But being able to see the particulars of a task are really, really important. If there is any thought to making this happen, please let us know. Also, if anyone has a work around I could use one YESTERDAY!!!

Add another vote for this feature ...

Each week I produce a "Task Completed" list to provide to my client, at the moment the title is all that's listed. It would be great to have the extra information provided (Report Style) that's avaliable in the notes.

Since this has now been an open issue for over 3 years could we have it soon?

Thanks :)

I too provide a printed "task completed" list to my customers. I was suprised when i could not include the notes. Looks like this has been requested for about four years. It may not have the most votes but must be one of the oldest requested features.

Printing notes in a list would also be very beneficial for me. I am a new user, and just expected this would be a default option. As others have commented I also use some lists for agendas and elaborate on the headers in the notes. Any idea how soon this feature may be available?

I think its clear that a lot of RTM users want to print notes to take to meetings. And it's pretty common as 37signals' Basecamp has put time into it:

Please RTM, WE NEED this feature : please do ti, it should not be that complicated. Thanks.
Posted 4 years ago
allthatcaz says:
Agreed. And I'll go so far as to say it'd be great if there were options to specify how much Note content to include in a display/print.

E.g. when selecting Print from a list, it would be ideal for the user to first be prompted with the following options, specifying the inclusion of any/all notes for each issue in resulting list:

Print List only (no Notes)
Print List With Last nnn Notes (where 'nnn' is an entered number)
Print List With Notes Entered in Last nnn Days (where 'nnn' is an entered number)
Print List with All Notes

As others have said, being able to show notes in a Print view is important in order to provide meaningful status reports to others who aren't working issues directly in RTM.

Naturally notes can be lengthy, so providing the option to show none/some/all are best so the user can decide how many they want to include.

if i had this, i would have my meeting preperation ready to print instantly. like it is now, notes are useless to me. i keep them in evernote for meeting preperation. which is not convenient at all, as i need to see the tasks in evernote and compile the preperation manually.

should be easy to realize as well, isnt it?
