Include tags in the print view

ccaine says:
It would be great to be able to see the tags associated with a task in the print out view. For example, I have a Smart List that pulls all of my "errands" into one list. I may have each of the tasks on this list tagged to a particular store ("Lowes") or part of town ("WestSide"). Having the option to include this detail on the print out would be helpful.

Tags are now included in the print view with the new Remember The Milk.

Thanks for everyone's feedback on this!

RTM used to do this some time ago. I don't know why but I found out recently. (My old lists still have this functionality!

strange?

g.bay says:
I would love this functionality as well. I like to run all my taks within inbox, and separate projects through tags only. Having tags associated in print view would really help.

Seconded. (I also posted this idea, wrongly, in the tips forum: http://www.rememberthemilk.com/forums/tips/3056/)

I'm using RTM with a group of people for work and other such projects, and we use the tags feature to assign various tags to individuals. The print view is great for the old school management types that don't like technology, but missing the tags is a problem when we use them this way. I'd love to see this feature added, and SOON!

Thanks for the great app

I have the same problem, i need to see the tags in the print view.
Would be great if these could be possible.

Thanks for RTM!!!!!!!

I've noticed that if you print with the "Print" command of your browser (or ctrl+P if applicable) from a list view in RTM you get what you're asking for: the list is printed with the tags; ok, maybe this is not very elegant, but while we're waiting for an "official printing function with tags" from whithin RTM could be a workaround...

It would be fantastic to have tags show up in the print view. Also, on another note, having tags show up in RSS feeds would be phenomenal, too.

RTM is the best.

In general, I would like to be able to choose which fields appear in the print view as well as the "weekly calendar" view - tags, notes, estimated time, etc.

RTM is awesome. Thanks for a great tool!

I'd love to have the option of including tags on my print out. Notes would be nice too, but not as desired.

Thanks!

print tags - and if possible - highlight each tag in different highlighted color to make it easier to use them

I Think RTM need better Print options including Tags, Date, Time Estimate and ... options.

Throwing in my vote also.
Essentially have the print page look exactly like the normal view (colors, tags, due date, recurrence).

An alternative could also be to make the action box on the right (List/Share/Publish) collapsable.

rnissim says:
we've been saying this for so long. RTM we love you, but listen to us. The print view needs to give us more control and options: tags, notes, colors...etc. we can do so much together, RTM.

+1 here, I just implemented GTD but lack of tag in print is causing issue!

giovanna.campello says:
I would like to be able to print tags as well, and, while you're at it, the possibility to assign different colours/ fonts to tags (ok, I know it is a bit too much, but since we are in wish list mode). Also, it would be so good to be able to SORT tasks by tags ... Thanks!!!

chris.ramakers says:
Another +1 here ... the overview of my tasks is gone without the tags associated with each task
Posted 14 years ago
ninjabob7 says:
Another vote... we should at least have some settings for what to include in the print view (tags, lists, etc.). The way I have my GTD system set up, I would like to be able to see the tags for an item but don't care what list it is from when I print a Smart List.

I use tags to keep track of case references. Without them I have no idea which tasks belong to which case! This is a much-needed feature.

I found a workaround!! I use the bookmarklet from PrintWhatYouLike and isolate the task list.... Prints list with tags!

This is a terrific tip, Mark. It's a little crazy to me that one has to resort to hacks like this to generate a decent printout. Especially as this thread is nearing its fifth birthday.

twman says:
I concur. Customizing the print view is important to me because I do most of my thinking from paper.

Great tip, Mark. Very very appreciated and exactly the kind of tool i was looking for to solve the print with tags issue. Many thanks!!!

Yes! We could REALLY use the tags showing on the print out for our team on the lists. RTM any sense if this will happen or do we all need to figure out a different way?

I could not agree more. THis is the key feature missing for me too
Posted 12 years ago
uwe.druckenmueller says:
this would be suuuuuuuper helpful. It would allow me to assign a tag to each of my tasks and to print. Then I could quickly find the task in RTM by searching for the tag.

Please add this! RTM should focus less on fancy stuff (evernote, tweeting tasks etc) and spend time thinking about old fashioned usability - and that includes paper!!!

Definitely would be a HUGE plus. I use tags extensively and I lose a lot of information on printouts.

I'm currently printing from the web browser as the tags (which is a right pain in the way it comes out). Adding tags into the Printable version would make life a lot easier!
Posted 11 years ago
june.finch says:
.... and the above comment in English ....

I use tags heavily and really would like them on the print view. A print from the web browser is a very clunky workaround (I end up having to cut the lists out of the rest of the page). Please add them....
