How to add a note to a task

When the notes strategy is on you will see a note icon on the right of the task when hovering over it. 

Adding a note to a task

Clicking the note icon expands the task to show a note area underneath the title. Clicking the note icon again collapses/hides the note.

Note area extended

You can add as much text to the note as you like. 

Whenever a task has a note that contains text, the note icon is colored. 

You can also add a note to a task by using the "--" shortcut that you type in the title while creating a task.

Note indicator

To see if a task has a note, without hovering over it, you can activate the "Notes icon indicator" option by going to ☰ → Settings → Tasks & Projects → Notes icon indicator.
