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!!

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.

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!
I'd use this often!

I do something similar wherein every "Todo" I create starts with the word "Todo". That way I just search for Todo and get the list. I recently submitted a request to be able to lasso something and covert that to a remover task with alarm. I'm hoping it gets traction.
How I handle tasks with Goodnotes:
Open Goodnotes and "GoodTask - To Do List Manager" in split screen.
In Goodnotes, use Lasso tool, select handwritten task, drag and drop to GoodTask.
Voila - the task ist created in GoodTask (even without manually doing OCR in Goodnotes).
BTW: I don't have any affiliation with GoodTask nor am I paid by GoodTask. I am just a very happy user of GoodTask.
BTW 2: I think, you can do this stuff with other task manager apps as well.

Add integration to export tasks to ClickUp, Asana, and Trello, and this would be GOLD! Something like, Goodnotes > Select Handwriting > Long Hold Selection > Mark as Task. The selection gets a tiny icon near it -OR- gets a boundary around it (the color that represents that a task has been selected), and then you can either long hold it again and choose Export to . . . and pick a task app you've already configured in settings (to export tasks one-by-one), or click the hamburger buttons at the top of the page (i.e., settings), and select "Export all tasks".
This would be awesome! It would save me bouncing back and forth between reminders and goodnotes.
This would ne awesome :)

something as simples as Notability has could be enough.. then a way to display all of them at once!

Would be GREAT, making notes, annotating PDF and at the same create TODO list.
Looking forward for this feature

Notebooks 8 has this feature, albeit a little hit and miss. You choose a to-do marker symbol (! By default) and place it at the beginning of any sentence you want to appear in the to-do list page.
It seems this feature request is not happening, given that the comments date from more than a year ago.
Looking forward for this feature!
Would it be feasible to flag every todo item with "td", then search on "td" to see your todo list?
Toby Lewis commented
I am looking forward to get an ToDo list in Goodnotes, with the ability to have checkboxes.
This would be very useful please look into this and review this request

Any feature that would allow to tag or combine action items easily would be a huge improvement to a great product
