Description under Task name

Description about task is hidden in GetInfo popup.
I would like to see description under task name, because right now it's useless. Also, there's no any visual indicator whether some task has description or not.
IMO if I add some description that means that it consist some clarification or important information about task.

    thank you for your suggestion!

    The next version of Timelime will make the task description more easily accessible. I'm also thinking about adding a visual indicator. Maybe an option to display the first couple of words of the description under the task name in the menu bar panel, like you suggested.

    Thanks again,

    Hi Niko,

    yes one or two rows description under task name would be very helpful. That way user can easily find any task.

    I’d appreciate the same kind of possibility for timing notes (which already have an indicator ;-) in the timing tab.

    For the task description in the menu bar panel, keep it an option because for me the table would get very cluttered. Or make it a per-task option, if possible.

    Hi Guys,

    I have already implemented an option to show a snippet of the task description under the task name in the next version. Please wait a couple of more days for version 1.0. I'm ready to submit it next week and hopefully it doesn't take Apple too long to review it :-)

    @Flofl: Interesting Idea about the timing notes... I'll have to think about it more, but I think I can do that in one of the upcoming releases.

    Thanks and have a great day,
