Add Notes to Projects and Mouse Hover to view Notes


I'd like to be able to add notes to my projects and mouse over a task/project and view the notes for them.

Another awesome feature would be to allow notes to be viewed in the Task List via a "Show/Hide" button. You could have this for projects and tasks separately.

Thanks for building such a great web app!

I agree that there needs to be a notes field to track ongoing information relevant to the overall project, but not specific to a task.

I just raised a separate suggestion for the hover and then saw this thread. I'll close the one I started.

Thanks all

Sounds good but it might also cause obstruction in viewing the tasks outline, if the notes keep showing up when one accidentally hovers over the notes icon. This could be a feature that may be turned on optionally. Also, the grey-filled notes icon that appears for all tasks (on hover) kind of gives a feeling that there is a note attached to the task. It would be a subtle UI improvement if the note icon appears as an empty outline for tasks with no notes.

+1 for project notes. I'd love to be able to keep notes at the project level.

+1 on project notes, they are not always (almost never) tied to a single task.
