Hi,

I'm looking for a way to print my agenda for the day, but including the items 
data, not just the heading.

All the export methods I have tried just export the agenda buffer as it is, 
without showing the full data for each item.

This is useful if I need to go out for some meetings, and I have some more 
info about the meeting (phone number, address) in the data section.

Thanks,

--yuval

This is now (latest git version) possible, with an agenda custom
command configured like this, with a export file, and with
binding org-agenda-before-write-hook.

  ("a" "" agenda ""
   ((org-agenda-before-write-hook '(org-agenda-add-entry-text))
    (org-agenda-add-entry-text-maxlines 5))
   ("agenda.txt"))

See also the new variable org-agenda-add-entry-text-maxlines

If you always want to have entry text in exported agenda views,
you can also do in .emacs:

(add-hook 'org-agenda-before-write-hook 'org-agenda-add-entry-text)
(setq org-agenda-add-entry-text-maxlines 5)



or use org-agenda-export-settings for things like this.

Wow.. thanks!

With such an attentive and prompt development I now understand how orgmode 
became such a success.

Actually,

I want to simplify this further.  From now on, the hook will always  
contain
that function, and you can control adding entry text entirely by setting
org-agenda-add-entry-text-maxlines to a number greater that zero.  The  
default
for the variable is zero, which means nothing will be added.

That's a great feature, and I like the simpler configuration.  I've
often wanted this for things like grocery lists and library lists.
