        is there a way to add 'notes' to a task?
      • For instance when I have completed a task I often find myself wanting to add some additional data to it for reporting purposes.
      • note:"don't ever try this again", "took way longer then expected", "the supple room caught fire!"
      • Also, is there a way to 're-ID' the list?
      • ToxicFrog
        {HD}: `task annotate`
      • Not sure what you mean by "re-ID" -- `task gc` will clean up deleted/finished tasks and reassign their IDs to pending tasks, but it should run automatically after most commands.
      • {HD}
        ToxicFrog: I will check out annotate.
      • ToxicFrog
        You can also add annotations through the `task edit` interface, if you find that more convenient.
      • woshty joined the channel
      • {HD}
        ToxicFrog: Yes, I want to take the current IDs and close the gaps. I have for instance ID#1 ID#8 and ID#13
      • I want to re-ID them to 1 2 & 3
      • gour
      • ToxicFrog
        {HD}: have you turned off garbage collection, and/or do you have filters that hide some pending tasks? If gc is on the IDs should be contiguous.
      • {HD}
        ToxicFrog: I don't believe I have turned off gc. I will dig around.
      • gour: Interesting. I don't know if I need external resources for annotations but I will certanily bookmark that.
      • gour
        {HD}: all i can say is that's what i use to keep notes for my tasks
      • e.g. "task open id" and my vim is launched. closing the task and i'm back in (task) shell
      • {HD}
        gour: And do you have a central location for all the external files? Or do you store them in a project directory?
      • gour
        ~/.task/notes and it's referenced in ~/.task/taskopenrc file

        gour: and why do you use taskOpen vs annontate all the info in? Can you reference it with reporting? I am intregued and I think I may try it.
      • gour
        {HD}: e.g. i've daily recurring task which has to be regularly annotated. for it is ver simple to use taskopen, edit note in a vim, insert timestamp etc. moreover, if the notes file is bigger i have all the vim-editing capabilities on disposal and my task list is not cluttered much
      • not using it with reporting, so can't say more - read its doc
      • it is cheap to tr it and uninstall if not happy ;)
      • *try
      • {HD}
        gour: I know I should just try it. But, I am alway hesitent to install something/anything. I do like the sound of it though. Thanks for pointing it out.
      • gour
        {HD}: taskopen can be installed locally. just put the main script on your $PATH and modify taskopenrc script
      • s/script/config file/
      • (taskopenrc)
      • {HD}
        When I finish up this project I will give it a shot.
      • gour
        {HD}: pbeckingham's philosophy is to keep tw lean and dedicate all the non-core features to external tools, as much as possible which makes tw easier to maintain and i agree with him on that
      • pbeckingham
        Finally, someone agrees. :)
      • gour
        ;)
      • {HD}
        2 things: 1 I also agree (for the most part) and 2 pbeckingham you invented tw?
      • pbeckingham
        {HD} I don't know if invented is the right word. Wrote most of it.
      • {HD}
        pbeckingham: Wow, neat. Well thanks for all the help. Guess I should be more appreaciative of recieving help from main dev.
      • I've only been using tw for about 3 weeks but I think it has become a 'must have' for my work enviroment.
      • pbeckingham
        Cheers. Glad you're here.
      • gour
        pbeckingham: any chance for https://github.com/GothenburgBitFactory/taskwar... before 2.5.2?
      • {HD}: i even ditched emacs/org-mode (twice) to return to vim/tw :-)
      • {HD}
        gour: Do you vim ":! task ## start" or whatever? I just have several terminals open. One with a task next and task calendar that refreshes every 20 seconds, one for any commands I need to use and one for vim...
      • gour
        {HD}: no, i always have one terminal tab opened with task shell
      • paininabox joined the channel
      • pbeckingham
        gour: It should be fixed before 2.5.2.
      • gour
        pbeckingham: thank you

        is it safe to move lines in pending.data?
      • reorder with an editor?
      • i think that would solve {HD}'s reordering problem.
      • iiuc, ids are line numbers.

        i think {HD} wants to manually order their tasks. like a deliberate, "i will do this, then this, then this."

      • arooni
        anyway to set an urgency coefficient *only if* a given uda has a non zero value? for instance i'd like to make tasks that have a 'totalactivetime' of > 0 to be more urgent
      • https://taskwarrior.org/docs/urgency.html uses the priority h / m / l as an example but not sure how to get it for non zero values

      • day0 joined the channel
      • parsnip
        arooni: iirc, all user defined contributions to urgency are linear in their attributes
      • so mostly a multivariate linear polynomial or something

        how do I 'due:thursday+9h30m'? I see that due:thursday+9.5h worked but that felt a little odd.
      • parsnip
        that's how i do it. if it felt odd, i'd go look through online docs for all formats. `task calc` can help with experimenting.
      • {HD}
        I am playing with task calc now
      • I need a 'thursdayT9:30
      • parsnip
        true story: gbf.org and tw.org are my first two bookmarks in bookmarks bar.

        OhMy there is a diff between due and scheduled!

      • hmm, doesn't quite work, `task rc.dateformat:aThN calc thuT930`

      • so then you can research when you have time.
      • or just the first one is sufficient.
