Ideas for useful annotations

  • Add a url to a task.
  • Record history of incomplete efforts toward a task.
  • Save a url to the map or site of store that has something you want to buy
  • Notate when a task needs action from other people.
  • A checklist to remind of things needed for completion (though long checklists are probably better being spun off as other tasks).

Urls are links

Any urls added to a description are converted into clickable links that open in a new tab.
