Hi, Carsten and Bastien,

Thanks a lot for putting a lot of thought on this. I always get more than I asked for here, which is rare in life. :-)

Just one more question though: Are we going to make the "CANCELED(c!)" notation also a global option (vs per-file option) when we define the TODO states in .emacs? I almost never use per- file options (except for exporting) as I want to stick to one simple set-up everywhere.

Yes, obviously.

Thank you.

Hi Bastien,

I am not sure this i a complete enough solution. If I understand Wanrong correctly, I think he wants to be able to define the specific states that should record a time.

So I guess a complete solution would be to introduce a character like "!", similar to the "@" we are already using to denote taking a note. So


would record a note when switching to WAITING, and only a time when switching to CANCELED.

I would like to record down the time stamp when a TODO item changed its state into some specific states (like "DELEGATED"), but I don't want to

I like the idea.

Here is a patch against latest org.el from git that implements something
that might suits your needs.

If you add "%!" to one of the heading in `org-log-note-headings' then
Org doesn't pop up a new buffer, the log is filled automatically.

(setq org-log-note-headings
    '((done . "CLOSING NOTE %t")
      (state . "State %-12s %t%!")
      (clock-out . ""))))

Carsten, if you like it, I push it and update the manual accordingly.
