Most of my tasks have only one state change (TODO->DONE), so I like to be able to quickly see my log notes by fully expanding all headings in a sub-tree. Thus, I do NOT use the LOGBOOK property.

However, for repeating items the list of log entries can get quite long. If I fully expand a sub-tree with a repeating task, the log notes push the rest of the tree off the screen. I'd rather if *only* repeating tasks (and perhaps select other tasks) used the LOGBOOK property to keep the log notes hidden in a drawer.

This brings me to my question and possible feature request. The LOGGING property allows us to set logging preference on a sub-tree basis. Is it possible to set the value of org-log-into-drawer on a sub-tree basis, either via the LOGGING property or some other property? If not, would it be possible to add this capability?

That does make sense.

Please use the new LOG_INTO_DRAWER property for this purpose.

I subscribed to this list in April '06, and I remember suggesting the
*note* logging feature later that year
(http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/612).  The next release
(version 4.50) included *note* logging. Incredibly, three years later, despite
the explosive growth of orgmode and its community of users & developers,
you still implemented my feature request (coincidentally related to
logging) within a day!

Three years ago, I eagerly absorbed each new feature.  Now, although I'm
still an avid user of orgmode, the growth in my personal use lags behind
the pace of development, and there are many new features that I have not
even touched.  In fact, I often can't even keep up with the volume of
this list.  Yet, the new features have little or no impact on the
features I do use, even though I keep my version nearly at the bleeding
edge via git.  This is just great software design and management!

Anyway, this is my way of saying a profound "thank you" for a great tool
and superb support.
