I take a ton of notes and produce a lot of todos from meetings, etc.
OneNote had this feature 15 years ago whereby you would add a todo box next to the line of a handwritten note. It then had a todo notebook that would pull all of the todo boxes from all notebooks. I'm dying to have this feature. I've searched and searched and can't find the feature anywhere! Please please add this!!

Yes, that would be fantastic. The MacOS notebook application developed by 'circusponies' had a similar feature. At the conclusion of each notebook, there was a 'todo' page that displayed all todos within that notebook, organized by section. Notebooks could be structured using an outline page with a collapsible structure, akin to the goodnotes PDF-outline feature—which I also miss. Additionally, it offered various visual tags such as exclamation marks, a rolodex icon, and a calendar icon, which could link to address book and calendar entries. You could search for these tags and receive a list of all pages where they appeared. Integrating this feature would be highly beneficial!

Just posted a similar suggestion but figure I’ll mention here too - integration with to do apps is so important. People are using this to capture notes and to dos, but we need to be able to then easily integrate into task management apps. Otherwise this just ends up being a fancy analog notebook.

Will be great if we can link with Microsoft To Do or Teams assignments or Jira IDs

This suggestion is 7 years old! Clearly Goodnotes don't listen to users.

The ability to insert a reminder date button would be a simple solution here.

I would suggest a simplified version that just allows inserting additional notes such as post its, or as the person suggested, a to-do list which could then be linked to a different notebook or page. I think the important feature would be that the additional notes are still visible (if necessary in a smaller font), and not like for example adobe's comments which only show the icon.
Probably the main feature which is needed for me to continue using thegood notes. My usage has reduced by 90% because I need To Do easy management and lists. I just need a simple select - add as a to do list
I would also really love to have an option where all my 'todo' tasks are pulled out into one single place.
With a number of notebooks, a lot of tasks get lost with time, and I have to put the TODO into another app to ensure it stays visible.
Please, this is so needed!

Have been using GoodNotes since version 4 and like the app as my daily diary for office work but seems it has stopped growing
Have been Looking for the todo, tags and back links in number of app which I would like to see in GoodNotes
Rightly said OneNote had the todo feature and now many other apps are taking over. Would not like to switch over but will have to do that if I can’t get the features to make my life more productive.
I’ve found that using iOS/iPadOS Shortcuts is a handy way to achieve this.
I created a list in Reminders called “Triage” to hold the reminders I create in GoodNotes.
Then I created a shortcut:
- Receive “Any” input from “Share Sheet”
- Split “Shortcut Input” by “New Lines”
- Repeat with each item in “Split Text”
— Add “Repeat Item” to “Triage” with “No Alert”
- End Repeat
- Show notification “Added reminders: “Repeat Results”
Click the info button (the “i” in the circle”) and switch on “Show in Share Sheet”.
Now in GoodNotes:
- Capture your todos with the Lasso tool
- Open the popup by tapping within the lassoed section, and choose Convert
- This gives you a popup window with the text GoodNotes has discovered in the window
- Tap the Share button and choose your new shortcut
- Rejoice as each line of text is turned into a new Todo item in your selected list!
It would still be great to have the auto-detected todo feature that Bob originally asked for, but this is a quick and easy workaround that only uses built-in apps.

JSP as view and common header, footer, and navigation bar. You can implement the following features to this https://www.targetpayandbenefits.biz/ Todo Management project (take this is an exercise): Finish Todo feature: Add finish button and save status against each record in a database. This tutorial is explained in the below Youtube Video.

It’s very disappointing that Good Notes have not done this yet
Yesss, and you can sync it to other to-do apps!
I agree. I would love this feature.
I keep many notebooks for customer meetings, and it not always easy to remember the todo's from every notebook. Having a way to identify a todos, and have it populate a single todo page would be great.
The anonymous suggestion below (May 21, 2019) is excellent. It works so well to drag-and-drop to GoodTask that it almost seems as if the apps were designed specifically to work together. That said, a more complete vision for ToDos in GoodNotes is in order — functionality as described in other requests below, integration with Apple’s Reminders, sync (maybe through Reminders) with other apps like Outlook, etc. It would be an amazing feature for GoodNotes.
Graham Roy commented
I would love this feature as it can sometimes be tricky reading back through notes and figuring all the Actions or To-Dos that were captured. I like the suggestion of using a "code" in the notes and searching for that - I think that's a good short term option, but having something that would "formally" identify an Action/To-Do and have the ability to flag it as "Complete" would be really nice!
