From: Husain Alshehhi <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Adding Quick Notes in Org-mode Agenda View Inserts then In Drawer in Reverse Order Date: Mon, 29 Mar 2021 22:20:33 +0000 [thread overview] Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw) Hello. I use org-agenda frequently for getting an overview of my work. I clock-in when I start working on something. I often find myself needing to add a note to the task I am working on. To do that from the Agenda view, I run org-agenda-add-note. I add typical notes like what my findings are, anything I did related to the task, but it is nothing related to notes about why the task changed status (at least not always). However, I do have in my config (setq org-log-into-drawer t) which should add clocking into my LOGBOOK drawer by default. I discovered however that org-mode adds my notes in the LOGBOOK drawer. I am not sure why, but it appears that these notes are considered "status notes" (?) and thus by org-log-into-drawer documentation are logged into the drawer. I am not certain if this is correct. This setup, works fine except for two cases: a. When I want to export my notes to HTML, exporters will ignore the LOGBOOK, and I would like to export my notes. b. Notes are ordered in reverse: newer notes are put first. Because of this behavior, I suspect that I am hijacking the notion of "status change notes" and using them as notes. My questions are: 1. Am I using the notes correctly in org? 2. If not, what is equivalence of adding quick notes into a task (ideally, with time stamp of sort)? 3. If yes, then how can I work around the limitations (a) and (b)? -- Husain Alshehhi
