Can I add a note to a project?


In the features for the premium subscription, adding notes to TASKS is listed as a feature, but can I add notes to the PROJECT if I upgrade to premium?

Hello Richard,

unfortunately, this is not possible right now, but thank you for your suggestion, we appreciate it and will consider adding such option in future development.

You're welcome to add a feature request to our Votebox:

Please add this. I'm having to create a task called "notes" to lots of projects just so I can add notes to it. Like who's the people involved, tips/tricks, and stuff that isn't a task. It comes up a lot.

Agreed - this is actually quite important to me as well. This would allow me to pop open the project I want to work on and have the important notes - websites, people, phone numbers, description of project, and so on - readily available to me. I was just about to start the approach that texafornia uses as a kludgy workaround, but it's not really a good solution.

Basically, Projects should be similar to a task in the sense of being able to attach labels, set dates and add notes.

And? Any progress?

I would like to see something like this, too. One possibility that might be easy to build and use: a toggle to turn any task into "reference" status. Since tasks already have pretty darn good note/reference material capabilities (only missing rich text support, IMHO), let's commandeer tasks.

When this new toggle is set, the task hides its dates, completion status, and reminders. (It would also make the task ineligible for karma tracking.) When unset, it gets them back. We might see them in lists with a note icon to the left of them instead of with a check box.

Since they would be tasks, we can still assign labels or filter on them. We can move them around. We can set their indent level.

One drawback: this solution would not necessarily cover Trish Putnam's desire to set project due dates.

Since the votebox link is dead, I would also like to voice my support for this feature here.

+1 for supporting this feature. I end up creating a task in my project called Notes.

Another +1 - I'd really like this as well.

+1 - there are notes and other assets that would be convenient to have at the project level that might apply for all sub projects.

+1 This is very important for me. When I have any kind of project where I want to use Todoist, I always have some notes that refer to the project as a whole, and it's frustrating for me that I can't have a simple notes function for the project similar to the ones for individual tasks.
