Hello,

I'm guessing this is going to go under a "feature requests" category, but I'd like to know if it's possible to have an "insert timestamp" button for task notes?

They're extremely useful in the notebook section and can come in quite handy for task notes as well.

We may add one in the future. In the meantime, you can use a macro program (like textExpander on the mac) to do this.

Great idea! Yup, that will work for now.
If it's any help out there to other PC users, I installed a program called "AutoHotKey" (http://www.autohotkey.com/)

Here's the script that would insert a timestamp using this specific format: Monday, July 02, 2012 @ 10:16 PM

;SCRIPT START
SendMode, Input

^d::
;FormatTime, CurrentDateTime,, MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss
;FormatTime, CurrentDateTime,, LongDate
FormatTime, CurrentDateTime,, LongDate
Send, %CurrentDateTime%
FormatTime, CurrentDateTime,, Time
Send, {Space}
Send, @
Send, {Space}
Send, %CurrentDateTime%
Return
;SCRIPT END

or you could go with Texter, a freeware option written in AutoHotKey, that eliminates the need to know virtually all that AHK scripting.
