Thank you both for the quick responses. I'll look into both options.

I'm certain people say this a great deal, but the depth/breadth of org- mode is just astounding.

Hi Keith,

(Newbie question again)

I frequently have TODOs that span some amount of time while in the
STARTED state. A simple example would be a phone call, where I try a
few times to reach the person before being successful (I may change to
the WAITING state for this...). When I do reach them, I want to take
notes on the conversation. There are so many different ways of
approaching this in org-mode that I'm a bit overwhelmed. What I've
been doing thus far is just entering the information in bullets below
the TODO, ie

- tried to call, left message
- they called, and I missed the call
- success - <notes on call>

Usually, I add a time-stamp. I have to think that there is a better
way. What's the best way to handle this?

The easiest and most convenient way to do this, in my opinion, is to use
org-add-note. The keybindings are:

 - z :: in the agenda

 - C-c C-z :: in org-files

Using this command on a heading will open up a new, temporary buffer.
You can type your note and then hit C-c C-c. It will be saved beneath
the headline along with a time-stamp.

Hope this helps,
