Would be great to be able to interact with tasks more in Timeline.  So, currently, I can only mark a task as completed.  Would be great for that section to expand and show the current fields on the task so that more info could be included without having to leave Timeline.

Example: We have an activity type for Training.  One of my follow up tasks for for a completed training is to check on usage a week after the training.  I would like to be able to add a description of what that usage looked like as well as marking the follow up as completed.

This makes sense.  My question is whether you see a danger in complicating the Timeline interface.  Cockpit and Timeline are different and I worry about recreating Cockpit inside Timeline.  Do you share that concern?

Hi Karl,

I was definitely thinking about that too.  I don't think we'd necessarily want to recreate everything from the task layout in Cockpit, but maybe just the description field?

That make sense to me.  The Task Description is in the spirit of Timeline -- kind of notes about the specific Followup that is needed.
