Task changelog (history of changes to a task)

It would be useful to know when you created a task, when you postponed, or when you did make changes.

This is useful when you don't remember what that errand thing was about. :)

I don't know if RTM keeps history of changes, but it would be useful., Maybe just a RSS with changes.

I like this idea. Especially for lists that are shared.

I find the way StackExchange sites do this to be helpful as a comparison. Its good to know the diff of changes someone made to your original. Version history is essential for many reasons and I think it applies here as well. God forbid the cat sleeps on the keyboard when out of the room and manages to log out and close the browser thus removing the undo capability. :)

+1 for this idea. Looking at a task a I postponed a couple times, would help to know when I created it.

a) This is handy to follow shared lists or tasks given to others.
b) Along with the log registers/history of changes, to have a notification when new notes / tasks / subtasks are added to shared lists is essential to collaborative work.

Just linking to other thread, in which was discussed:
"I've tried to set up RTM for a team, and not having both "notifications" and "log/history" features makes RTM quite inefficient to teamwork. If one have 10 tasks, it may be manageable to check each task for changes. But if you have +100 tasks in a shared environment and you don't have means to follow what is going on, it becomes really impossible to have a productive teamwork."

+1 for this!

Let's say I assigned a subtask to a team member and I need to wait for him to complete that task so I can continue with the work. At the moment my colleagues need to send me a message or a mail whenever they've completed something, otherwise I wouldn't have any idea and time gets lost. This is super counterproductive – if this app features assigning tasks, then the assignee just NEEDS to get notified if this task is marked as 'completed', for me it's just part of it.

I was just bringing a team member to RTM Pro in order to work together as I was swearing on RTM (it otherwise helps me manage my tasks so well) – we are now very disillusioned as this is not working for us at all without notifications :(

For me it is important to have a log esp. if a task is assigned to someone
