Annotate Notes with Tasks


Idea

I have a lot of handwritten notes either scanned in or imported from a handwriting app.

Would be great to be able to draw boxes round bits of images or other docs and assign a task and some text to it.

@PinkElephant, I probably wasn't that clear...
What I'm talking about is an ability to associate a particular area of an image (or other document) with a task.
Like you might have a hand drawn flow chart for exmaple and want to associate a task with a particular part of the image to give better context to the task.
I don't think that's currently supported but would be great.

Thanks for the clarification.

As it seems, the concept of tasks is to keep them pretty simple. All additional information you want to associate with a task finds its place in the note into which the task is embedded.

This is different to other todo-apps, but EN decided to use what they have (a top notch note concept) and add a task entity to it, instead of recreating it all to build tasks.

@PinkElephant, just feels like if a task can be embedded at any point in a note in order to provide context, then those points should also include areas in images or PDFs. You can't really contextualise a task if it lives outside the content that makes sense of it.

Currently it is restricted. One of the larger requests from us users is for example tasks embedded in tables. Not possible at the moment.

We should not forget we are still in early access with tasks.

Yes, would be similar to tables. Just another entity in which you can put your task. There's various stamps you can already put on images which unused to use for a kind of manual Todo/done. If there was just a stamp that added a task that would be great.

Or widening this to provide a hotespot which could link to anything. Particularly a note link.
